From SZA to Taylor Swift, All the Artists Going on Tour in 2023

When it comes to music, 2022 went out with a bang, especially after years of uncertainty in the music industry amid the COVID pandemic. Along with incredible, critically acclaimed releases from artists like Harry Styles ("Harry's House"), Beyoncé ("Renaissance"), The Weeknd ("Dawn FM"), Kendrick Lamar ("Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers"), and SZA ("SOS"), the year was also filled with showstopping tours. Elton John, Bad Bunny, Lady Gaga, The 1975, Dua Lipa, and Lizzo were just some of the artists who dominated 2022 with national and international shows.

Given last year's lineup of beloved artists, 2023 has some big shoes to fill in terms of concert tours, but the year is set to match 2022 with a number of highly anticipated, spectacular shows. Whether you're a serial concertgoer or someone looking to simply enjoy some live music, here's a roundup of artists going on tour in 2023.

Beyonce's "Renaissance" World Tour

In October 2022, Queen Bey discreetly teased that she would be going on tour in 2023. According to Vulture, the "Cuff It" singer revealed the news at the Wearable Art Gala, when a "UNIQUE experience" to see the star perform her newest songs from the "Renaissance" album was auctioned off. Dates and locations for the tour have yet to be revealed, but fans anticipate an announcement sometime in February.

Taylor Swift's Eras Tour

For Swifties, the announcement of a new Taylor Swift tour this fall was beyond exciting, but a glitch in Ticketmaster's system (caused by unprecedented demand for tickets, among other reasons) led to many fans losing out on the chance to see Swift perform in person. Though some controversy has surrounded the Eras Tour, it nonetheless is highly anticipated by fans lucky enough to have snagged tickets. The tour features guest performances from artists like Paramore, Haim, and Phoebe Bridgers and will span across the US (international dates TBA) from March 17 to Aug. 9.

On returning to the road as a group, lead singer Hayley Williams told Billboard, "We're lucky that we've never relied on being a specific type of success, whether that be chart success or radio success. Because at the end of the day, there's a connection and a relationship with the people that have grown up supporting and loving the band with us. So we trust that."
