Tour Shows

2022’s On Tour Artists and Bands

2022 is by all accounts a magnet for unrecorded music – enormous reunions deferred by the principal pandemic lockdowns, the greatest geniuses going behind their 2021 albums, and indie rock artists performing shows as they discharge new music.

Of course, it remains to be seen how the new variants and ongoing pandemic will affect these touring schedules, but here are some of the artists heading to venues around the world this year.


The 1975

Three years after their last tour, the 1975 will embark on a long-awaited road trip across North America in support of their new album Being Funny in a Foreign Language, due out October 14th.


Adele previously announced her stay in Las Vegas just after the release of her fourth album, 30, but it was postponed in January citing COVID safety precautions. Now it’s on the track again. On November 18, it will begin with the Vegas shows, which will run until March 2023.
