As we're going deeper and deeper into the year, it's important for you to know the most anticipated tours of 2023. We broke down some of the most prolific performers that you absolutely have to see live this year. From rock to hip-hop and R&B, here's everything you should be marking down in your calendars for the year.
The 13 Most Anticipated Tours of 2023
13. Logic and Juicy J - The College Park Tour
Logic and Juicy J is a rather unconventional combo, but we're here for it. The duo kicks off their collaborative tour in May of 2023 in Wisconsin, and they finish it up in June in Phoenix, Arizona. With additional performances from C Dot Castro and Travis Stacey, you'll definitely want to stop by if there's a show near you.
12. Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd - Twelve Carat Tour
Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd are both well worth watching live in concert. While the North America leg of the tour is complete, they're still performing a ton of shows in Europe. If you're feeling in the mood for a European excursion with some top-tier music, this tour is a safe bet.
11. Lil Wayne - Welcome to Tha Carter Tour
Any fan of hip-hop is highly likely to be a Lil Wayne fan as well. The legendary talent kicks off his tour in April in Minnesota, and finishes up in May in Los Angeles. This is a perfect opportunity to see one of the greatest rappers ever live in concert - you won't want to miss this one.
10. Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa -
Whenever Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa link up, they do something special, and their 2023 tour is no exception. If you find yourself in proximity to any of their tour dates (and have a particular liking for cannabis), then this is right up your alley.
9. Wu-Tang Clan and Nas - NY State of Mind Tour 2023
What's better than one legendary New York hip-hop act on tour? Two legendary hip-hop acts on tour. Such is the case for the Wu-Tang Clan and Nas' collaborative 2023 tour. If either one of them were doing a solo tour, it'd be well worth a ticket purchase, but together it's impossible to resist.
8. Taylor Swift - The Eras Tour
Taylor Swift has one of the most dedicated fanbases in the world, and it really shows whenever she goes on tour. Her 2023 tour not only will feature her performing some of her best music ever, but it also features a collection of some of the best up-and-coming talent in the world. Whether you're a Taylor stan or not, you'll want to witness history when she's in a city near you.
7. Jay Critch - Jugg Season Tour
When we interviewed Jay Critch last month, he alluded to a tour for his album Jugg Season. While we're still waiting on more details, this is easily one of our most highly anticipated tours of 2023, and you can bet that we'll be popping out to his NYC performance, whenever that ends up taking place. Stay tuned for even more details.
6. Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks - Two Icons, One Night Tour
Stevie Nicks AND Billy Joel? No, this isn't a fan-made mock-up, this is a very real thing. Regardless of where you are in the United States, you'll likely be very close to one of their stops on this absolutely legendary tour. Both artists are known to be top-tier performers on their own, but together, it's sure to be all the more magical.
5. Dead and Company - The Final Tour (with John Mayer)
Next up on our list of the most anticipated tours of 2023 is Dead and Company, who's on their final tour with John Mayer this year. If you haven't seen Dead and Company yet, this looks to be your last chance to do so. If you haven't heard the raving reviews from fans who've experienced it first-hand, take our word for it: you're gonna want to see this for yourself in person.
4. Wizkid - More Love, Less Ego Tour
Recently, we spoke about Wizkid's music-making prowess in our article about the best Afrobeats artists in the world. He's also highly regarded for his performance ability, which you'll get a chance to see in a city near you this year. If you're not already sold, take a look at his Spotify to understand just what the hype is about.
3. Blink 182 - World Tour 2023
Blink-182 is yet another example of a group with an incredibly dedicated fanbase, and they're also going to be on tour this year in 2023. This is a world tour, so whether you're in the US or beyond, you'll have your opportunity to see Blink-182 at a venue near you.
2. Drake and 21 Savage - It's All A Blur Tour
Next up on our list of the most anticipated tours of 2023 is Drake and 21 Savage with their It's All A Blur Tour. While this has been largely discussed lately on Twitter over things like ticket prices being too high, it seems safe to assume that one way or another, this tour will sell out. I mean, after all, it is Drake who we're talking about. Get your tickets soon before they're all gone.
1. Beyoncé - Renaissance World Tour 2023
At the number one spot on our list of the most anticipated tours of 2023 is Beyoncé with her Renaissance World Tour.

If you haven't seen Beyoncé perform yet, here's your golden opportunity.
