With Summer 2017 quickly approaching, concerts are a great way to spend warm nights with close friends. There are so many musicians going on tour this summer – but with ticket prices becoming more expensive it is almost impossible to see more than just a handful of them. In order to help pick what shows to go to, here are 5 summer concert tours that, in my opinion, you definitely do not want to miss:
1. Coldplay – A Head Full of Dreams Tour
One aspect that makes Coldplay’s concerts different from any other show I’ve been to is that the audience does not just sit there listening to the music being played. Coldplay uses LED bracelet lights worn by the audience which becomes an all inclusive experience for your senses. If you’re looking for a night full of crowd interaction, then A Head Full of Dreams Tour is the perfect show for you!
Coldplay will be at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on August 1
2. Bruno Mars – 24K Magic World Tour
Bruno Mars has a unique reggae style that no other artist can compare to which definitely shines through in his performances. If you’re looking for a show full of R&B music and cool dance moves, then be sure to go to the 24K Magic World Tour!
Bruno Mars will be at Madison Square Garden in New York on September 22 & 23
3. Lady Gaga – Joanne World Tour
As we saw with her Super Bowl Halftime performance, Lady Gaga knows how to put on a show. If you’re looking for a night of catchy songs, sparkly costumes, and high-energy dance routines then the Joanne World Tour is perfect for you!
Lady Gaga will be at Citi Field in Queens on August 28 & 29
4. Ed Sheeran – Ed Sheeran World Tour 2017
Ed Sheeran is known for his acoustic sound and his concerts definitely match this tone. Although he is going on an arena tour, expect an intimate night of Ed performing his hit songs with just his guitar. If you’re looking for more of a relaxed show to go see with friends, then I recommend going to Ed Sheeran’s World Tour!
Ed Sheeran will be at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on September 29 & 30
5. Queen and Adam Lambert – Queen + Adam Lambert Tour
If you like both classic and modern rock, then paying to see both Queen and Adam Lambert in one concert is a great deal. If you’re looking to go to a concert that is high-energy but also full of nostalgia, then be sure to go see this national tour!
Queen + Adam Lambert will be at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on July 26
