    Ticket prices: $20+

    4. Sting + Shaggy are the iconic duo you never realized you needed. They're currently out on a one-month stint to promote their collaborative album 44/876.

    More info: The tour kicked off on September 15th in Miami and takes the two to intimate venues across the country through their last date on October 15th in Los Angeles.

    Ticket prices: $40+

    5. 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.

    More info: Sivan's album Bloom came out on August 31st, and the tour kicked off on September 21st in Irving, Texas, and will visit theaters across the country through November 8th. Trust me people, this guy can ENTERTAIN. Plus, he's being joined by the lovely Kim Petras.

    6. BTS are headed for world domination, TBH, and the North American leg of their tour will invoke screams from their dedicated fanbase like no other show you've been to, that's for sure.

    More info: The North American leg kicked off on September 5th in Los Angeles. If you're only hearing about the K-pop group now, then brace yourself because you'll only be hearing more about them. Their fanbase is next level, and for good reason, because their music is pretty awesome, too.

    Ticket prices: $130+

    7. Ed Sheeran is continuing his popular ÷ tour this year after it saw huge success in 2017, but in an upgrade from arenas to stadiums.

    Phil Walter / Getty Images

    More info: He'll be hitting stadiums across North America through early/mid-November. An Ed concert is a really special experience, unlike a lot of other shows you've been to. He somehow has a way of making stadiums feel like small, intimate venues by keeping the focus of the show solely on the music, rather than a ginormous production. He'll be joined by Snow Patrol, Anne-Marie, and Lauv.

    Ticket prices: $41+

    8. 5 Seconds of Summer are BACK AND BETTER (and more grown up) THAN EVER! You'll have to excuse my yelling, I cannot get over Mikey and Cal's jumps in this photo, LIKE THEY ARE IN THE AIR AND I'M HYPERVENTILATING?!?

    Kevin Winter / Getty Images

    More info: The "Meet You There" tour hit North America back on August 27th in Toronto with special guests, The Aces. Forget everything you thought you knew about 5SOS and listen to their new album, Youngblood IMMEDIATELY. I promise you won't regret it, it made me a fan all over again. Hint: if you buy a ticket to their show, you get a free copy of the album!

    Ticket prices: $28+

    10. 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 as Superbowl Half Time performer and the release of his Man of the Woods album, he's having a pretty great year.

    Christopher Polk / Getty Images

    More info: The tour kicked off on March 13th in Toronto and brought Timberlake across the country, and then took him to Europe for the summer, but he returned to the states on September 19th in Lexington, Kentucky, and will be playing shows well into the new year.

    Ticket prices: $35+

    11. 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.

    Jason Kempin / Getty Images

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

    Kevin Winter / Getty Images

    More info: The tour kicked off on May 8th in Glendale with her very special guests Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. Every song is accompanied with a memorable production. Swift has a way of making every fan in the stadium feel like they have the best seats in the house thanks to her huge LED screen stage and movement around the venue, not to mention the light-up bracelets every fan gets at the show. I've personally been to three dates of this tour and can attest that it's one of, if not THE best concert I've ever attended. PS — Notice how I made her number 13 on this list?! 😉

    14. Fall Out Boy recently kicked off another North American leg of their M A N I A tour at the end of August, so get ready to "Dance, Dance" the night away, when they come to a city near you.

    Ticket prices: $21+

    15. Lady Gaga isn't going on a fall tour, and technically isn't even going on an actual tour, but her upcoming Las Vegas residency deserves a spot on this list for the sole reason that it's going to be so iconic, you'll need to spend all of autumn mentally preparing for it.

    Michael Kovac / Getty Images

    More info: Her residency is slated to begin on December 28th at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM resort, and will feature two different types of shows to choose from: "Lady Gaga Enigma" (which will be a huge built-up production of her best hits) and "Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano" (which will have a more intimate, stripped-down feel).

    Ticket prices: $130+

    16. Keith Urban is continuing his tour into early November, so if you haven't had a chance to catch his luscious locks, soothing voice, and heartwarming smile yet this year, now is your chance!

    Angela Weiss / AFP / Getty Images

    More info: He's slated to move his summer amphitheater run from this past summer indoors to arenas this fall across North America, with very special guest, Kelsea Ballerini.

    Ticket prices: $30+

    17. Drake is currently on the road and will be 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.

    Jason Kempin / Getty Images

    More info: The tour kicked off on July 26th in Salt Lake City with Migos. Now you might be thinking, who is Migos? Well, silly, they're the hip-hop trio consisting of Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff who quite frankly make every song they sing/they're featured on sound ridiculously catchy and fun.

    Ticket prices: $61+

    18. PRETTYMUCH is your new favorite boy band, you just aren't aware of that yet, and if you are, then kudos to you and your fabulous taste in music. You have a month to catch them on their tour this fall, and you won't wanna miss out.

    Kevin Winter / Getty Images

    More info: If you're thinking these guys sound familiar, but can't put your finger on why, it's probably because you know their lead single "Would You Mind," which personally makes me wanna get up and dance at my desk at work every time it comes on. Their tour will be visiting smaller theaters around the country, but I can almost guarantee that by the next time they tour, they'll be hitting even bigger spaces.

    $10+

    19. Florence + The Machine are currently on a can't miss tour that'll take them on the road through the fall. Plus, they'll have lots of extra special guests joining them.

    Ticket prices: $40+

    20. 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.

    Scott Dudelson / Getty Images

    More info: The "What Makes You Country" Tour will turn you into someone who just really loves country in case you already don't. He'll be joined by an array of special guests including Sam Hunt, Jon Pardi, and Morgan Wallen. Wahoo!

    Ticket prices: $71+

    22. Phil Collins is going on a short tour this October — and by short, I mean literally less than a month. But that's ok, because the "Not Dead Yet, Live!" tour will be a celebration of his amazing career, which is huge.

    23. J. Balvin is going on tour in support of his new album VIBRAS. You've probably heard (and love) one of his number one singles like "Mi Gente," or "Machika," and you've definitely at least heard one of his awesome collabs with artists like Beyoncé, Liam Payne, Camila Cabello, Justin Bieber, and Cardi B — just to name a few.

    Cindy Ord / Getty Images

    More info: The tour kicked off on September 19th in Fresno, and will continue to hit arenas across the country until the tour ends on October 28th in Miami. The weather might get chiller as fall approaches, but J. Balvin will certainly bring the heat.

    Ticket prices: $27+

    24. Elton John is officially ready to retire from touring...in 2021 that is. His upcoming "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour will be comprised of a whopping 300 shows around the world, so yeah, this one is a must on your to-do list. I think you can find it in you to clear a night in your schedule in the next three years.
