As everyone knows, COVID-19 has affected so much of life for the past year and a half. Concerts have been one of the many things that people have missed the most. There was just no way artists could safely run concerts during these times. Multiple artists rescheduled or just totally canceled their tours. Lately, there have been announcements coming from all over the place for big tours finally having set dates for late 2021 or even 2022. Artists can’t wait to get back to performing, and fans can’t wait to be back in the audience of their favorite singers. 


Billie Eilish was one of many artists who announced their tour. On May 26th, she announced the Happier Than Ever World Tour. This tour features locations in Canada, The United States, and all the way to the United Kingdom. The very first concert will be on February 3rd, 2022, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Many shows are already completely sold out, but any leftover tickets are available on


The Jonas Brothers followed shortly after Eilish and announced The Remember This Tour on May 28th. Kelsea Ballerini is listed as a special guest, joining the Jonas Brothers for their tour. It is said to take place live and outdoors this summer. The very first concert is set to take place on August 20th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many tickets are still available at


Some of the other artists that have recently announced tours are Kane Brown, Lady Antebellum, Bad Bunny, Luke Combs, and Dan & Shay. Dan and Shay announced The Arena Tour on their Instagram as well as their Facebook, and the caption they used sparked rumors of a new album coming soon, as there were just five capital letters in the entire caption, spelling out ALBUM. Their tour is set to begin at the beginning of September in Greenville, South Carolina. 


Even though life is heading back to what it was like before COVID, especially with concerts coming back, everyone needs to remember to still keep following the recommendations put in place by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), and overall stay healthy, so life can continue to return to normal. Have fun at any activities planned this summer, but stay safe above all else.
