2019 has just started and the only thing that's on my mind is the music that will be released this year and what kind of artist will be going on tour. I've set a personal goal for myself this year. I want to see as many artists as possible on tour this year. The legitimacy of an artist, in my opinion, allows depends on if the artist sounds good live. I decided to present this list to recommend some artist I might be seeing live or I'm interested in seeing live.
1. Ariana Grande
Tour Name: Sweetener Tour
As we all know, Ariana Grande has had a tough year in 2018. But did that let her stop her from releasing music? Not at all. In fact, 2018 was probably her most successful year as a musician. 2019 will definitely be the year where Ariana will constantly thrive
2. Kacey Musgraves
Tour Name: Oh What A World Tour
I've talked about Kacey before and at this point, I absolutely adore her. While country is not my cup of tea, Kacey has more of contemporary pop sound, especially in her 2018 album Golden Hour.
3. Fleetwood Mac
Tour Name: An Evening with Fleetwood Mac
A new lineup may be in place but the magic is still there. Personally, I'm debating if I should spend $100+ to see them without Buckingham but regardless, the band seems to be getting good reviews on this tour so far.
4. Elton John
Tour Name: Farewell Yellow Brick Road
Elton John is beloved by everyone. With his signature glasses and extravagant outfits, this Rocket Man will surely be missed as this would be his last tour.
Tour Name: The Rhapsody Tour
The Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody took the world by storm. Old and new Queen fans can now say that they have a new tour to look forward to. Freddie must be super proud.
6. The Rolling Stones
Tour Name: No Filter Tour
Your parents love them, your grandparents like them, now it's your turn. The Stones are and always will be legends and seeing them on a stadium tour would be an incredible experience.
7. Shawn Mendes
Tour Name: Shawn Mendes: The Tour
America's (or should I say Canada's) biggest heartthrob is going on the road. I'm sure you and your girlfriends can enjoy a fun night with the cutest singer out there right now.
8. King Princess
Tour Name: King Princess
One thing the music industry needs more of is representation. King Princess is one of the greatest new LGBTQ+ artists. She's comedic yet talented and her music seems like it would sound great live.
9. Travis Scott
Tour Name: Astroworld - Wish You Were Here Tour 2
Travis has had an incredible 2018. With a chart-topping album and an adorable family, Travis is sure to have a great time on tour and sharing the album with his fans.
Tour Name: Here We Go Again
Cher has been a superstar for decades. No one can question it. With her cameo in the new Mamma Mia movie, it surely inspired her to give her fans a little more music and fun.
These artist seem to have really good reviews when it comes to live shows. Hopefully sometime this year, I can tell you all about my experience seeing them. Tickets for these artist are available on Ticketmaster in case this list inspired you to go out and buy tickets to see these musicians on tour.
