The Most Anticipated Concert Tours of 2023

It’s been an incredible year of concert tours. Artists such as Bad Bunny, Chris Stapleton, The Black Keys, Lizzo, Kendrick Lamar, and so many more, have brought entire stadiums and arenas of people to their feet. Fans, who couldn’t attend live shows for so many months, are remembering why live music is so vital.

It’s been a comeback year for several artists who couldn’t tour since the pandemic. The concerts have been dazzling, spirited, big. But we think the concert tours in 2023 will be even bigger. Here are The Most Anticipated Concert Tours of 2023, the shows you won’t want to miss.

Blink 182

You heard us correctly: long-beloved rock band Blink 182 are reuniting their original lineup for a 2023 tour. Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker are performing together for the first time in 10 years—in addition to releasing new music.

Blink 182 released a new song, “Edging,” on October 14th to commemorate the band’s announcement. We can’t wait for Blink 182 to launch their world tour, set to run from March 2023 to February 2024.

SZA

Solana Imani Rowe, otherwise known as SZA, has been long absent from the road. Since 2018’s “The Championship” Tour with fellow artists on her TDE label, SZA has performed very minimally—only a show here or there, such as this year’s Outside Lands festival.

Finally, on Dec. 9, SZA released her highly anticipated sophomore album SOS. The same day, SZA dropped the new music video for “Nobody Gets Me.” Fans immediately took to the new LP, having waited over five years for a new SZA joint. Then, less than a week later, SZA came through with the news we’ve all been waiting for.

SZA announced her first-ever North American arena tour. “SZA: The S.O.S North American Tour” will begin February 21st and run through March 22, ending at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA. SZA will be joined by Omar Apollo for all North American shows.

Tickets for SZA’s 2023 North American tour go on sale Friday, December 16th. You can find all SZA ticket presale info here.

Bruce Springsteen

Next year, The Boss, aka the one and only Bruce Springsteen is going on tour. Back in 2019, after his run of “Springsteen on Broadway” shows, Bruce announced an upcoming 2020 tour with the E Street Band. But due to the Covid pandemic, the tour was postponed indefinitely.

Finally, we have upcoming Bruce Springsteen tour dates. The 2023 Tour will take The Boss and the E Street Band to both North America and Europe to perform over 60 shows. Bruce Springsteen’s 2023 Tour will kick off February 1st in Tampa, marking the first show The Boss has played with the E Street Band since 2017.

Dead & Company

Beginning in May 2023, Dead & Company will hit the road for their final tour. Mainstay member, and lead guitarist, of Dead & Company John Mayer shared the band’s statement to his Instagram at the end of September. Though bittersweet for Dead & Company fans, we anticipate the group will go out with a bang.

“The Final Tour” will run from May 2023, through July, and includes 27 shows. Don’t miss out on Dead & Company’s final run of concerts, what will surely be some of their most joyous and heartfelt shows to date.

Arctic Monkeys

Finally, after announcing their forthcoming album, Arctic Monkeys have confirmed U.S tour dates. Arctic Monkeys released their new record, The Car, on October 21st. Their latest was led by two singles, “There’d Better Be A Mirrorball” and “Body Paint.” Fans are rightfully excited to hear this LP live, in concert.

Arctic Monkeys are scheduled to perform North America in Summer 2023. The Car arrives after 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. Produced by longtime collaborator James Ford, The Car, so far, features sultry and downtempo crooning from lead singer Alex Turner. We can’t wait for what “The Car” Tour brings to fans in 2023.

Big Thief

Alt-rock collective Big Thief will embark on a massive world tour beginning in November. Big Thief, touring in support of their recent album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You, will perform iconic venues from Brisbane’s Princess Theatre to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You, a 20-track album composed from their pandemic travels across the U.S, has quickly become a fan favorite. We can’t wait to hear it live, on tour in 2023.

The Postal Service & Death Cab for Cutie

Be still our early-2000’s-emo hearts! Celebrating the 20th anniversary of two landmark Ben Gibbard-led projects—Transatlanticism and Give upDeath Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service are joining for a Fall 2023 tour.

Ben Gibbard, the co-founder and front for both groups, said in a statement the importance the year 2003 has for him and his music. “I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003. The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out. These two records will be on my tombstone, and I’m totally fine with that. I’ve never had a more creatively inspired year.”

The 17-date co-headlining tour will kick off in Portland, Maine on September 8th. The reunited Postal Service lineup will feature co-founding member Jimmy Tamborello and vocalist Jenny Lewis. Death Cab for Cutie will be performing with their full, five-man roster. We absolutely cannot wait to hear Transatlanticism and Give Up next year on what will be a once in a lifetime co-headlining tour.

Ed Sheeran

Finally, after years of wondering when Ed Sheeran would bring his “Mathematics” Tour to North America, the beloved pop singer has announced dates. Touring in support of 2021’s Equals, Ed Sheeran will join several other artists who are set to perform in the U.S this summer.

In May 2023, Ed Sheeran will begin his North American “Mathematics” Tour at Arlington, TX’s AT&T Stadium. The “Mathematics” Tour, plotted for U.S stadiums and arenas, is bound to be one of the biggest concert tours in 2023.

Ed Sheeran Tickets

Luke Combs

Country music star Luke Combs will perform all over the world, and in the U.S, in 2023. Combs, who won the 2021 CMA for “Entertainer of the Year,” will tour behind his third studio album Growin’ Up. This most recent record, which arrived this past June, includes the hit single “Doin’ This.”

The Luke Combs World Tour is breaking all sorts of records. For several U.S venues, Luke Combs has become the fastest selling artist of all time. Clearly, Luke Combs is a hot ticket. We anticipate his world tour being one of the premier events of 2023.

Luke Combs Tickets

Taylor Swift

Once Taylor Swift confirmed her forthcoming tenth studio album, her first record of new material since 2020’s evermore, the tour rumors began. Taylor Swift’s new album, Midnights, arrived in full on October 21st. Not long after, Swift confirmed what fans had been hoping to hear. Taylor Swift will embark on a massive world tour in 2023.

Before the pandemic, Taylor Swift had originally planned several “Lover Fest” shows across the globe. But the devastation of COVID prompted cancellations which were never rescheduled. Which means, the last time Taylor Swift went on tour was 2018’s “Reputation” Tour.

It’s been four years, almost five, since Taylor Swift went on tour. Unsurprisingly, there was a widespread frenzy to secure tickets to the Taylor Swift “Eras” Tour when they went on the market. But if you can get through the door, we anticipate Taylor Swift’s upcoming “Eras” Tour to be one of the biggest concerts in 2023.

Beyoncé

Remain calm. Though no one from her camp has directly confirmed the rumors, we strongly believe the sources circulating the big news are correct. How, after all, could Beyoncé return with a body of work such as Renaissance and not go on tour?

According to Page Six, the “Break My Soul” singer is booking stadiums and arenas to perform in 2023. Specifically, Beyoncé is looking to begin her U.S Tour next summer. The last time Beyoncé embarked on a solo tour was 2016’s “Formation World Tour.”

What could be bigger than a 2023 Beyoncé tour? What could be more exciting than the potential of getting to hear Renaissance, and all of her other incredible records, live this summer? All we can say is: get ready to spend, because Beyoncé’s first solo tour since 2016 is bound to sell out fast.

Who We Want to Tour in 2023

Though these artists haven’t confirmed their 2023 tours, we are instilling some hope in their return. We would love to see these performers take the stage next year, adding even more pomp and circumstance to the concert tours of 2023.

Cardi B

First, Cardi B will have to let us know where her sophomore album is. She hasn’t been entirely absent from her fans, and has collaborated with Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, GloRilla, and several others since 2018’s Invasion of Privacy. But fans are still wondering: when will Cardi B release her long-awaited second album?

When will Cardi B go on tour? We think 2023 would be a wonderful comeback year for Cardi B. Though we praise Cardi for all of her entrepreneurial success, we hope she takes a turn back to music in the coming months.
