There’s nothing like live music to lift spirits, stir emotions and make you feel fully alive.

The 2023 year in concerts delivered thrills, crowds and billions in revenue thanks to blockbuster tours from Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen and other major acts – and the new year promises just as much music, fan love, crowd favorites and experiences that just might become lifetime memories.

Here are ten concert tours you won’t want to miss in 2024.

She’s had numerous number-one singles. Her debut tour sold out venues nationwide. Many consider her to be the breakout singer-songwriter of Gen Z. And she’s only 20 years old. After the release of her smash sophomore album, Olivia Rodrigo is hitting the road for her Guts World Tour – kicking off in Palm Springs in February before concluding in LA in the summer. No “Drivers License” required to see her perform “All-American Bitch” live – just come prepared to sing along with thousands of other superfans.
