The Biggest Concert Tours Hitting the Road in 2024
As 2023 gets underway, music fans are already considering what concert tours are planned for 2024. Several major artists have announced massive worldwide treks for the coming year. Here’s a preview of some top concert tours gearing up for 2024.
After her show-stopping Super Bowl halftime performance, Rihanna is heading out on a long-awaited global stadium tour. She hasn’t toured since 2016, so fans are eager to see RiRi’s spectacular live show promoting new music for the first time in years. Expect a production with costume changes, pyrotechnics, and chart-topping hits like “Umbrella” and “Diamonds.”
Ed Sheeran will continue his +–=÷x Tour into 2024, named after his string of math symbol-titled albums. One of the most successful touring artists today, Sheeran will bring his looper pedal and one-man show to North America, Europe, and beyond stadiums. Fans can sing along to pop hits like “Shape of You” and “Perfect.”
Lady Gaga is planning a 2024 tour with her next album, the follow-up to 2020’s Chromatica. Given her stint in A Star Is Born, fans hope she’ll incorporate more live instrumentation and rock elements this time. Expect the unexpected from this creative powerhouse.
Controversial rapper Kanye West is tentatively scheduling a 2024 tour after years away from the road. It remains to be seen how his legal troubles and erratic behavior may impact plans, but a Kanye tour would undoubtedly draw major hype. His live productions are always bold spectacles, though West is also known for canceling and changing plans abruptly.
Adele’s long-postponed Weekends with Adele Las Vegas residency has been moved to 2024 after a tearful last-minute cancellation in 2022. This time she promises the show will go on, allowing fans to finally see her powerful vocals and understated charm in an intimate theater setting.
K-pop phenoms BTS will likely announce a new world tour in 2024 following member Jin’s mandatory military service. After breaking records with their last global run, an even bigger BTS tour could be their most spectacular yet, full of synchronized dances, eye-catching fashion, and pop anthems.
The legendary Irish rock band U2 could return on tour in 2024. It would mark their first full tour since 2017-2018’s massively successful Joshua Tree Tour, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of their iconic album The Joshua Tree. Though they haven’t announced it, rumors are that U2 may be planning a worldwide stadium tour in 2024 with a spectacular high-tech stage production. Given their status as one of the biggest bands in rock history, a U2 tour in 2024 would undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated concert events of the year. Fans can hopefully look forward to hearing classics like “With or Without You,” “One,” and “Where the Streets Have No Name” performed live once again.
“2024 is shaping up to be a massive year for live music. With so many top artists like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, BTS, and more gearing up for huge worldwide stadium tours, 2024 could be one of the biggest concert years ever. The level of talent hitting the road is truly exceptional. Combine that with the pent-up demand after so many tours were postponed due to the pandemic, and you’ve got the ingredients for some record-breaking concert turnouts. As a ticketing provider, we’re already preparing for through-the-roof demand as these 2024 tours go on sale. We can’t wait to help fans secure tickets to what’s guaranteed to be some incredibly memorable shows.” – Chris Cabrera, CDO of Barrystickets.com.
