5 Touring Artists You Can’t Miss in 2022
It’s been a long couple of years now.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced numerous tours and festivals to either be put on hold or canceled outright. The concert industry lost an estimated $30 billion in 2020 alone, and the total lost for 2021 is still being counted.
But with global vaccination rates approaching acceptable levels, touring artists are starting to step back out onto the road. Here are the top tours to look forward to in 2021.
1. Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever World Tour
Billie Eilish has had a busy pandemic. A new album, an exclusive Disney+ performance, and starting next year, an expansive new tour.
Showcasing her 2020 album Happier Than Ever, her 70-date world tour will launch in New Orleans in February of 2022.
2. Shawn Mendes’ Wonder: The World Tour
Shawn Mendez is hitting the road for a 69-date tour starting in March. The tour will launch in Europe before making its way to the states in June.
The tour shares its name with Mendes’ 2020 album, but it remains to be seen if his setlist will incorporate new material like his recent, post-breakup ballad It’ll Be Okay.
3. Alicia Keys’ ALICIA World Tour
Alicia Keys is kicking off a much-anticipated 53-date world tour next June. Her itinerary will see her starting out in the United Kingdom before heading into mainland Europe and finally making it stateside by August.
The tour is expected to have a mix of the 15-time Grammy winner’s hits, alongside new material from her new album.
4. The Weeknd’s After Hours ‘Til Dawn Tour
Over the unpredictable pandemic months, The Weekend tried not once but twice to salvage his After Hours arena tour. Sadly it was all for naught in the end, with the tour finally being canceled outright.
In its place, He’ll be launching a retooled arena tour in the summer of next year. Details are still to be announced but expect the setlist to incorporate new songs from his current cycle like Take My Breath.
5. Justin Bieber Justice World Tour
Justin Bieber tried to alter his tour a few times over the course of the pandemic, ultimately scraping revamping it entirely. The new tour will kick off in February, starting in sunny San Diego and making 53 dates in the United States total. Bieber will also be making dates in Canada and Brasil as well.
Concert tickets for Bieber, as well as many of the other touring acts, are available now from ticketsonsale.com
