By Megan Koester

Are you ready to rock? Get tickets to the summer concerts everyone’s buzzing about, featuring artists like Drake, Brad Paisley, a newly-reunited Guns N’ Roses, and more. LiveNation has your hookup to the season’s hottest upcoming events. All you need to do is put on your dancing shoes and get ready for an amazing night of live music.


Queen Bey recently broke the internet with the unexpected release of her visual album Lemonade, selling almost half a million copies in its first week of release. It’s widely been praised as a masterwork, and justifiably so. Now she’s taking her beautifully choreographed stage show on the road with her Formation World Tour, which will make stops all over the US this summer. Don’t miss out! Summer concerts don’t get much more epic than this.


Ever since the release of his first album, 2010’s Thank Me Later, Drake’s career trajectory has been on a steady upswing. His latest album, Views, proves he’s a constantly evolving artistic talent to be reckoned with. The Canadian rapper will be traveling the country with Atlanta-based hip-hop artist Future (whom he collaborated with on his 2015 mixtape What a Time to Be Alive) on their Summer Sixteen tour, which will do a four-night run at Madison Square Garden, as well as dates in cities including Dallas, Chicago, and (naturally) Toronto.

Brad Paisley

The country music sensation recently released “Without a Fight,” a duet with pop star Demi Lovato, that will serve as the lead single off his forthcoming album. Paisley will play cuts from that eagerly-anticipated release, as well as beloved classics from his 10-album catalog, on this summer’s Life Amplified World Tour. Pack up the pickup truck and check him out at your local amphitheater!

Guns N’ Roses

Welcome to the jungle, indeed…Guns N’ Roses are back! The legendary band’s list of stops on their Not in This Lifetime… reunion tour is exhaustive, proving they’re, once again, ready to rock in a major way. Alice in Chains and Lenny Kravitz, heavy-hitting legends in their own right, will be supporting them at some of their upcoming events.


The romantic and evocative English rockers are hitting the road this summer on their A Head Full of Dreams tour. Bring a date, as their music is best enjoyed with a sweetheart in tow. And after all, summer concerts are always better with company!

Queen Bey just dropped her most ambitious album yet, the beautiful and personal "Lemonade." Now she's taking her show on the road, hitting up dozens of cities on her Formation World Tour. Make sure to buy tickets now from LiveNation before they sell out.
