The music is loud, the atmosphere is electric, and the stage in front of you is full of energy. For many fans, there’s nothing more exciting than the experience of going to a gig, whether you’re seeing an artist for the first time or the fiftieth.
With new tours announced regularly, it can be hard to keep your finger on the pulse — especially if you have multiple artists you want to see. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of this month’s biggest tour announcements, so read on to discover the concerts making their way to North America in the near future.
The Celebration Tour
Fans were delighted by the announcement of Madonna’s The Celebration Tour. As the name would suggest, the show is a celebration of the past four decades of Madonna’s incredible career and will commemorate her success by playing 37 global shows (25 of those in the US and Canada). Special guest Bob the Drag Queen will join the singer, promising fans an exhilarating concert. The North American leg of the tour begins in Vancouver in July 2023 and closes in Las Vegas in October.

Live in Concert
This year, the one and only Stevie Nicks will embark on a 15-date solo tour, with 14 shows across the US and one show in Toronto. The tour kicks off in March in Seattle and concludes in Louisville in June. The Fleetwood Mac star’s tour will run concurrently with her eight-date joint tour with Billy Joel — titled Two Icons, One Night for good reason!
Music of the Spheres Tour
Coldplay recently announced seven dates for their Music of the Spheres 2023 West Coast Tour. This September and October, the band will visit Seattle, Vancouver, San Diego, and Los Angeles.
In 2022, they broke records when they sold more concert tickets than any other artist — over six million! Excitingly, this time round, the band has pledged to cut tour emissions by 50% through a number of initiatives, such as powering their stage with renewable energy and giving 10% of their profits to environmental projects and charities. Sounds like a great idea to us!
Can’t wait until September? Fill your head with Coldplay and more bands just like them with Alt Nation (Ch. 36).
Joined by guitarist Steve Stevens, who co-penned the original Top Gun theme, Billy Idol will be embarking on a 16-date tour between March and May 2023. The tour will conclude at the Cruel World festival in Pasadena, where Idol will perform alongside other giants of the industry, including Iggy Pop, The Human League, and Echo and the Bunnymen.
