    2. Paramore are set to hit the road beginning this June as they continue their tour from last year, and you're gonna need a ticket. Ain't it fun seeing them live.

    3. Luke Bryan is currently on his What Makes You Country tour, and if there's one thing this handsome, country-singing, American Idol-judging guy has taught us, it's that there's nothing he can't do.

    4. Taylor Swift is currently on the road with her big reputation, literally, with her long-awaited, extremely fucking awesome Reputation stadium tour.

    6. Kesha and Macklemore are co-headlining a tour in support of their recent albums Rainbow and Gemini, respectively, and if I could give you a one word prediction of how it'll be? Epic.

    7. Chris Stapleton is undoubtedly one of country's hottest names, and if you can't take my word for it, then maybe, sorry, I mean, definitely go find out for yourself.

    8. Troye Sivan is iconique, and I will not let you betches tell me, otherwise. Ok, but, for real, you are seriously fooling yourselves if you don't buy a ticket to his upcoming tour.

    9. Drake is preparing to head out on the road starting at the end of July and throughout the fall on his Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour, and there aren't a lot of things that I'm definite about, but your need to get tickets to this tour is one of them.

    16. Dua Lipa is starting her summer hitting a handful of cities as part of her ongoing 2017 tour. If you're not completely obsessed with her yet like the rest of us are, then I'm making one of your new rules to be to LISTEN TO HER MUSIC!!

    17. Janet Jackson is a living legend, plain and simple, and truly an inspiration, so a ticket to see her concert this summer would be an incredible gift to yourself.

    23. Halsey continues to kill the game, plain and simple. Just when you think she couldn't get any bigger, she does, so it makes perfect sense that this summer she's heading out on yet another North American leg of her 2017 Hopeless Fountain Kingdom tour.

    33. Justin Timberlake has suit and tied himself up on his current tour that'll take him into 2019. I'd say that with a gig of Superbowl Half Time performer and the release of his Man of the Woods album, he's having a pretty great year.
