It’s looking like a busy year for some of the world’s biggest touring artists, with packed schedules from Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Bad Bunny, Foo Fighters, the Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, Green Day, and many more. A few touring institutions, meanwhile, are just wrapping up, from Adele’s time in Las Vegas to Billy Joel’s Madison Square Garden residency and Bob Dylan’s seemingly never-ending Rough and Rowdy Ways trek. Some things, however, just never seem to change: You can expect the Ty Segalls and King Gizzards of the world to feature on these roundups till kingdom come, with reliable indie-rock staples like Destroyer, Wednesday, and Alvvays still out in force fighting for the cause, too.


After a residency that has spanned the best part of a year and brought hundreds of thousands of Adele fans to Las Vegas, the Tottenham superstar is closing the run with dates from January through June. “This residency, these shows have changed my life. I desperately needed to fall back in love with performing live again, and I have,” she said in the announcement. “It’s just made me realize how much I really enjoy being on stage, that I’m bloody good at it and that it is 100% where I belong! So let’s go one last time before I turn into a showgirl forever!” –Jazz Monroe

Before they play a European festival circuit next summer, Alvvays will head out on a series of U.S. tour dates in spring 2024.

Turns out 2022’s El Último Tour del Mundo wasn’t actually Bad Bunny’s last world tour. The Puerto Rican superstar is back on the road for the 47-date Most Wanted North American tour, in support of his October 2023 album Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana. The run begins in February and concludes in May with three back-to-back nights in Miami. –Hattie Lindert

Bad Bunny: Most Wanted Tour

Belle and Sebastian

Right at the top of 2023, Belle and Sebastian shared a surprise album: Late Developers presented an array of playful indie-pop, and a companion of sorts to the previous year’s A Bit of Previous. The band was due to tour shortly after the record’s release but canceled when bandleader Stuart Murdoch ran into health issues; the rescheduled dates take place in the spring. In the meantime, Murdoch announced a memoirish novel and the band appeared on The Simpsons. –Jazz Monroe

Billy Joel

This year marks the end of Billy Joel’s storied Madison Square Garden residency: the New York staple is set to retire his franchise with the venue after his 150th show in July. Since announcing the series in 2013, Joel has kept it a steady engagement, only taking off 18 months for the pandemic. While the residency is coming to a close, Joel does not yet plan to retire. –Hattie Lindert

Billy Joel Tour 2024


Jack Antonoff was busy in 2023—getting married and producing albums from Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift—and he’s showed no signs of slowing down for 2024. His band, Bleachers, is releasing a self-titled album, and he’s also producing the soundtrack for Apple TV+’s The New Look. With all that, he and Bleachers are also going on the From Studio to the Stage Tour with Samia as an opener. –Hattie Lindert

Bleachers: From the Studio to the Stage US Tour 2024


The biggest pop-punk reunion of last year is ready to keep the momentum going into 2024.

Starting with more than a dozen dates in Australia in February, Blink-182 will make their way across the globe, playing in South America, North America, and Europe nearly every month until the fall. Opening select shows are Rise Against, Pierce the Veil, Alexisonfire, and the Story So Far. Expect foul-mouthed banter, heavy nostalgia, and one massive reminder not to take yourself too seriously. –Nina Corcoran

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan was 80 when he started to tour behind 2020’s Rough and Rowdy Ways. Now 82, the revered bard is still celebrating his latest studio album with shows around the globe.

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band

The Boss and his band remain on the road, and the peptic ulcer disease that forced him to postpone several 2023 dates is no longer going to stop him. Bruce Springsteen returns in March, bringing his formidable live show across the United States before dipping into Europe and concluding with more North American dates later in the year. –Jazz Monroe

Burna Boy

After playing a series of North American shows in November, Burna Boy is returning for the second half of his arena tour supporting his fifth and latest album, I Told Them…. The latest shows follow his December performance at the Afro Nation Nigeria festival in Lagos’ Tafawa Balewa Square. –Hattie Lindert

Burna Boy: I Told Them... Tour

Danny Brown

If you didn’t catch Danny Brown at the tail end of 2023, fresh off the release of his latest album, Quaranta, not to worry: The rapper is heading back out on tour in 2024. Brown will head off on a North American run in March, starting in Boston and closing out the series of shows in Nashville on April 14. Brown released Quaranta, which he has called a “spiritual bookend” to his 2011 album XXX, in November 2023. –Hattie Lindert

After releasing the serpentine and sumptuous Labyrinthitis in 2022, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar is taking a more minimalist approach to his performances in the United States and Canada as winter starts thawing into spring. David Carswell, one of Bejar’s regular collaborators, will join the singer-songwriter, with Vancouver duo Lightning Dust opening in all locales except for Denver. –Allison Hussey

The tour kicks off in January with a show in San Diego, California. –Hattie Lindert

DJ Shadow: Action Adventure: The Tour

Drake & J. Cole

Apparently, to Drake, entering “Scary Hours” means bidding 21 Savage adieu and welcoming J. Cole to the next edition of the It’s All a Blur Tour. In support of For All the Dogs and the subsequent Scary Hours Edition, Drake has expanded the tour with a series of 2024 dates featuring Cole. The new leg of the tour—subtitled Big as the What?—begins later this month in Denver. –Hattie Lindert

Drake: It’s All a Blur Tour - Big as the What?

Fall Out Boy & Jimmy Eat World

Unofficially inspired to recreate the Predator handshake meme but for two different generations of emo-gone-pop-punk, Fall Out Boy and Jimmy Eat World are joining forces this spring for a 23-date tour of the United States, with the former headlining and the latter opening. Dubbed the So Much for (2our) Dust, it begins in Portland, Oregon, on February 28 and stretches on through to April 6, where the trek ends in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Both bands will also reunite in the fall for the Las Vegas music festival When We Were Young. If it’s anything like the first run of Fall Out Boy’s tour in support of their new album, So Much (for) Stardust, then fans can expect a thrilling career-spanning setlist that rotates in a few new songs each night. –Nina Corcoran

Fall Out Boy: So Much for (2our) Dust

Foo Fighters

It’s going to be a busy summer in 2024 for Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, Rami Jaffee, and new drummer Josh Freese have some June stadium shows lined up in the United Kingdom, and, then, in July and August, they’re hitting stadiums and ballparks across the United States. They’ll be joined by myriad support acts, including Alex G, the Hives, Amyl and the Sniffers, L7, and more. The band’s latest album, But Here We Are, arrived last summer. –Evan Minsker

Green Day

When Green Day heads out on tour in 2024, the band will bring no shortage of support along.

Before that, Green Day will tour Europe starting in May with support from Nothing but Thieves, the Hives, Donots, the Interrupters, and Maid of Ace.

Brooklyn-based shoegazers Hotline TNT have a tour lined up next year in support of their album Cartwheel.

Jamila Woods

Chicago singer Jamila Woods brings her intimate album Water Made Us on the road, visiting multiple cities across North America and Europe.

Jamila Woods: Water Made Us Tour

Jane Remover & Quannnic

Jane Remover’s Census Designated marked a notable shift in tone and style: The artist who had pioneered corners of the burgeoning 2020 hyperpop scene turned towards more straightforward rock and emo. Now, she will take the new sound out on the road on a series of U.S. tour dates in February. Jane Remover will co-headline the Designated Dreams Tour with her DeadAir labelmate Quannic. –Hattie Lindert

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

The beloved and prolific Australian weirdos King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are getting ready to tour a lot in 2024. After March festival dates in South America and dates in May with Grace Cummings across the United Kingdom and Europe, the band will head to North America for shows in August, September, and November. Crowds in Forest Hills, Chicago, Quincy, and Austin are also getting the band’s famous three-hour “marathon shows.” –Evan Minsker

After being hospitalized for a severe bacterial infection last year, Madonna made a full recovery, in a turn she has referred to as “a fucking miracle.” As a result, the pop legend finally kicked off the initial leg of her rescheduled Celebration Tour in October. After a stretch of dates in England and Europe, Madonna has already brought her career-spanning show to North America, where she will continue with dates in Toronto, Detroit, Montreal, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Las Vegas, Inglewood, Houston, Miami, and more until spring. She’ll wrap things up with a batch of concerts in Mexico City, ending on April 24. –Madison Bloom

Madonna: The Celebration Tour


The riotous Welsh rock band Mclusky, who last toured North America in 2004, were primed for a cross-Atlantic comeback run until disaster struck: bandleader Andrew “Falco” Falkous found himself working through a debilitating bout of tinnitus and other inner-ear problems. After some recuperation and with hearing protection in tow, Falkous and the band are due to make good on their return in March. The group shared a double A-side, “Unpopular Parts of a Pig / The Digger You Deep,” in September, as a high-spirited preview of a forthcoming full-length. –Allison Hussey

Mclusky: USA Tour 2024


The crowd who spent a mid-July weekend watching Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, and more perform for free in Brooklyn at MIKE’s Young World festival got a front-row seat to the rapper’s caring curation and accessible live experience. In 2024 he’ll take that energy on the road in support of his most recent solo album, Burning Desire. The Somebody Fine Me Trouble tour begins in Europe in February, before kicking off a U.S. leg in Philadelphia in April. He’ll close things out with a hometown show at New York’s Webster Hall. –Hattie Lindert

MIKE: Somebody Fine Me Trouble Tour

Militarie Gun

The hardest working touring band in post-hardcore is dead set on maintaining that title in 2024. Los Angeles’ Militarie Gun are going back on the road for a North American tour, beginning on January 31 in Phoenix, Arizona, and extending on through March 9 in Seattle, Washington. It’s their first headlining tour since releasing Life Under the Gun, their long-awaited debut album, as they’ve taken numerous opening gigs for other bands since then. This time around, set to open all of the shows are Pool Kids and Spiritual Cramp, with additional support on select dates from Death Lens, Spaced, and Roman Candle. –Nina Corcoran

She may not be an outspoken artist online, but, behind the scenes, Mitski is making every word count. While TikTok was busy fawning over “My Love Mine All Mine,” Mitski was putting in the work to find a music venue that offers fair merch rates while still booking a place big enough to house her sizable fandom at each stop. The result of her efforts is a North American tour with multiple nights at theaters around the country in support of The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We. Joining her along the way are openers Tamino, Sunny War, Julia Jacklin, and Sarah Kinsley. –Nina Corcoran

Mitski: The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We Tour

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Ms. Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour

Olivia Rodrigo

After Taylor Swift and Beyoncé’s blockbuster outings, Olivia Rodrigo is looking like the next pop star to dominate the year with a massive tour. There are over 75 dates on the Guts World Tour, spanning Europe and North America. Opening for Rodrigo on select dates will be Chappell Roan (who also worked on Guts), PinkPantheress, and Remi Wolf. The chaperoning parents of younger tri-state area fans are clearly taken into consideration, too, as the Breeders will support Rodrigo over four nights at Madison Square Garden. –Hattie Lindert

Olivia Rodrigo: Guts World Tour

Porno for Pyros

It’s time to say goodbye to Porno for Pyros. Whether you’re ready or not, Perry Farrell and the band’s 2024 reunion shows are now billed as farewell dates. “Getting together with these guys has been some of the most fun, the happiest times in my life,” Farrell recently said in a statement. They take place in February and March across the United States. As a consolation prize, the band recently released its first song in 26 years back in November. Quench your thirst with “Agua.” –Evan Minsker

Porno for Pyros: Horns, Thorns en Halos Farewell Tour

Red Hot Chili Peppers

The shows Red Hot Chili Peppers have planned for 2024 include a diverse and long list of support. Red Hot Chili Peppers have lined up Kid Cudi, Ice Cube, Ken Carson, Otoboke Beaver, Sean Kuti, Wand, and Irontom to join them on select dates in North America. –Hattie Lindert

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Unlimited Love Tour 2024

The Rolling Stones

Forget about what you thought of Hackney Diamonds for a second: Do you want to go see the Rolling Stones play a stadium somewhere in North America? If you do, their upcoming dates from late April to mid-July have you covered. Among their plans is also a headlining spot at this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Will any special guests show up at these shows? Who knows, but the band did play a surprise release show with Lady Gaga last year, so anything can happen. –Evan Minsker

The Rolling Stones: Stones Tour ’24 Hackney Diamonds


One of shoegaze’s best-loved acts is back on the road in 2024: Slowdive will tour in support of the 2023 album, Everything is Alive. The British band has North American dates in the spring sandwiched between European runs. –Hattie Lindert

Slowdive: 2024 North American Tour

The Smile

Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and drummer Tom Skinner are in a groove as the Smile and show no signs of slowing down. Wall of Eyes, their follow-up to 2022 debut A Light for Attracting Attention, will come out on January 26. A little over a month later, the Smile will bring those songs to life for a short European tour. Beginning in Dublin, Ireland, on March 7 and ending in London, England, on March 23, the run is only nine dates long. Who knows, maybe Paul Thomas Anderson will fly himself out to watch as a little treat for directing the “Wall of Eyes” music video. –Nina Corcoran

The Smile: March 2024 Tour


Stephen and David Dewaele are rebooting Soulwax in 2024 for the duo’s first tour in five years. The Dewaeles co-produced Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul’s Topical Dancer in 2022, but haven’t released an LP of their own since 2018. The tour begins in Amsterdam in January, and will also stop in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and England. –Hattie Lindert

Soulwax Tour 2024

Stevie Nicks

Continuing a run of late 2023 shows that included a few co-headlining dates with Billy Joel, Stevie Nicks has more tour dates lined up for the new year. The singer will begin her 2024 run next month in Atlantic City—and Joel will once again be joining her at later dates in Texas and Illinois. –Hattie Lindert

Stevie Nicks: Live in Concert

Taylor Swift

The hottest concert ticket of 2023—subject of the biggest concert film of all time—continues its reign throughout 2024. Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is crisscrossing the globe. It’s Japan and Australia in February, Singapore in March, and then Europe and the United Kingdom from May to August. The shows return to North America in October and November with multiple dates in Miami Gardens, New Orleans, Indianapolis, and Toronto. If you’ve read through this paragraph, you might have noticed: that’s most of the months! –Evan Minsker

Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour


Tool haven’t released new music since 2019’s Fear Inoculum, but they’ve remained busy on the road. Following headlining and festival dates last year, the band has stadium and arena shows in January and February. Wondering what wild outfit Maynard James Keenan will wear this time? Will it be a blonde wig, red lipstick, and prosthetic breasts? A leather jumpsuit and a wild mohawk? Might as well go to one of these shows and find out. –Evan Minsker and Matthew Ismael Ruiz


With her new album, What an Enormous Room, out January 26, Mackenzie Scott is spending January to April on the road. Torres starts the year with January dates across the United States with Aisha Burns. For the first two weeks of February, she’s over in Europe and the United Kingdom for a bunch of shows, and then she’s back in the United States in late March and early April with shows alongside Liza Anne. –Evan Minsker

Torres: 2024 Tour

Ty Segall

One can never be sure exactly what to expect from a Ty Segall show, especially here in the post–Freedom Band era. His sets can be electric and wild, acoustic and intimate, maybe a bit psychedelic. With his 2024 dates behind the new album Three Bells, you can likely expect him to lean into his prog rock impulses. After some West Coast dates in February, he’s heading across North America in April and May. –Evan Minsker

Ty Segall: US Tour ’23-’24

Tyler Childers

Kentucky’s Tyler Childers is a real champion of country music, honoring its history while expanding the genre’s palette and challenging the dominant attitudes of the industry’s principal players. Soon, he will play some of the biggest venues of his career on his Mule Pull Tour, including New York’s Madison Square Garden and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Hayes Carll, 49 Winchester, Sylvan Esso, and Allison Russell will join Childers at different stops of the U.S. run. –Allison Hussey

Tyler Childers: Mule Pull ’24 Tour


During a Super Bowl musically dominated by the long-awaited return of Rihanna, U2 shared a commercial featuring a baby’s face in an orb. That mystical child heralded the band’s Las Vegas shows, where they’ve performed their 1991 album, Achtung Baby, from September into the first months of 2024. U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at the Sphere marked the opening of the MSG Sphere at the Venetian, which seats 17,500. With Larry Mullen Jr. taking time away from the band to recover from surgery, Bram van den Berg is playing drums at the shows. In a statement accompanying the announcement, the Edge used the phrase “the beauty of the Sphere” (speaking of the venue and not the baby from the Super Bowl spot). –Evan Minsker

U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere


Wednesday—whose singer, Karly Hartzmann, has openly chronicled the hurdles for indie bands to break even on tour—take to the road again in early 2024, still revving the gas behind their shaggy triumph Rat Saw God. In October, Wednesday shared a deeper peek at their lives together with the half-hour documentary Rat Bastards of Haw Creek, directed by their longtime friend Zach Romeo. They’ll begin in their native North Carolina in January, playing dates with Hotline TNT and They Hate Change through the next month, followed by another springtime leg with Draag in the western half of the United States. –Allison Hussey
