Before you know it, 2018 will be here. But instead of freaking out over a New Year’s resolution, channel your energy into planning something more fun — like snagging tickets to next year’s biggest concerts.

Awesomeness continues after advertisement

Think about it: A number of your favorite artists have already announced their upcoming tour dates, so why not beat the crowd to the best seats? Even if you don’t exactly know what you’ll be doing months in advance, you can never go wrong with buying concert tickets because someone will always want them (meaning you can resell!).

From Taylor Swift‘s glorious return to the spotlight to Kendrick Lamar taking over Europe with a hit tour inspired by his latest album, DAMN., there’s so much in store for fans this coming New Year.

Scroll through and get that planner out to see which shows you’ll be able to attend.

Blake Shelton: Country Music Freaks Tour 

If you love this genre, you need to make time for Blake Shelton’s country music extravaganza. Artists including Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, and Trace Adkins will also be joining him.

For those studying abroad next semester or planning a big trip to Europe for spring break, we highly recommend penciling in a Chainsmokers concert. There’s no doubt it will take your travels overseas to the next level.


Demi Lovato: North American World Tour 

Let’s be real, having the chance to see Demi Lovato perform her newest single “Sorry Not Sorry” would be amazing enough, but the fact that DJ Khaled and Kehlani will also share the stage makes this a can’t-miss opportunity. The former Disney Channel star is also known for her Camp Rock reunions, so fingers crossed she’ll bring the Jonas Brothers out, too.


Ed Sheeran: North American Tour

Starting in the Spring, the New Zealand-born artist is heading back to the States. Though most of you probably saw her on the festival circuit last year, this is your chance to see her go all out at a concert of her own.

The pop-rock band had the year’s best features on their newest album, which means fans can expect a whole lot of guest acts to pop up at their stops on the road. They’re already off to a good start — they’ve recruited Julia Michaels as their opener.


Niall Horan: Flicker World Tour 

There’s nowhere in the world we wouldn’t go if it meant Niall Horan would be there, serenading us with his guitar. That’s basically what seeing him on tour is like, so reserve those tickets ASAP.

If you want to kick off your year right, you need to put P!nk on your list. After scaling the side of a high-rise building during the American Music Awards, it’s clear that she knows how to put on a show.
