Concert season is about to start up once again and I’m here to tell you who you need to see live s and reasons as to why. Please feel free to add additional acts in the comments!
This week is also a collaboration with love-alexandria so please check out her blog!
Let’s get started shall we?
COIN: The Winter Tour
I actually had the pleasure of seeing this band perform live at Shaky Knees last year and within one song of their set, I was hooked. They’re a fun band that brings heightened energy, fun crowd interaction and an overall good time. Be sure to see them now, because I predict big things for these guys and you can read why here.
Dates: Feb. 9 – Feb. 22
Bad Suns: The Heartbreaker Tour
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to see this amazing band live yet, but hopefully that will change within the next couple of weeks. Bad Suns are making a name for themselves, and you might have seen them if you attended Halsey’s Badlands tour, seeing as they opened for her. They’re a band that makes amazing music and I can’t wait to see what their live show has in store.
Dates: Feb. 28 – Mar. 20
Panic! At The Disco : Death Of A Bachelor Tour
I saw Panic! at the Disco last year when they went on tour with Weezer and let me tell you, this is a show you will never forget. Brendon Urie’s vocals are some that are of higher caliber than most modern artists and that’s clearly shown when he performs live. The band puts on a great show, but it’s one you have to experience for yourself.
Dates: Feb. 24 – Apr. 15
Red Hot Chili Peppers: The World Tour
I honestly feel like I don’t need to say much about this due to their namesake alone, I mean, they’re the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They’re credibility alone is one of the reasons to see them; but despite the fact they’ve made quite a defined name for themselves, they’re pretty phenomenal live and have left an impression on most people who have seen them live. Don’t believe me? Just watch this
Dates: Jan. 5 – Jul. 31
Bastille: Wild World Tour
This is one of the tours that, I personally, am the most excited for. I’ve been a fan for a couple of years, after hearing their album Bad Blood, and after watching their set at Live at T in the Park, I knew I had to see this amazing band live. They provide electric energy, show a ridiculous amount of talent and love to have the crowd involved. Definitely one to check out this spring.
Dates: Jan. 31st – May 12th
Sons Of An Illustrious Father: North American Tour
Okay, so I came across the band, Sons of An Illustrious Father late last year after hearing their song “Very Few Dancers” and I found myself hooked on their instrumentation, lyrical style and the conviction you can hear when you see them live. The first live performance I saw of theirs was a performance at Paste Magazine and I knew I had made the right choice investing into this band. I can’t wait to finally hear all the songs I’ve had on repeat live.
Dates: Feb 16 – April 2*
*more dates to be added
twenty one pilots: Emotional Road Show
I’ve seen this duo twice and I can not begin to tell you how amazing this experience is. I’ve been to quite a few shows within the last couple of years and this is one that wasn’t like any other. Between the lighting, effects, and even down to the setlist, this band is one that adheres to the experience of the fans and nows how to make their shows as fun as possible. If you want to know more, feel free to read about my experience the last time I saw them.
Dates: Jan. 19 – Apr. 8
Well that’s what I have for you all this week, and be sure to check out love-alexandria and to be here next when I tell you who to watch out for this year in the world of music.
Song Recommendation of the Week: Maybe We’re Meant To Be Alone by Bad Suns
