These Are the Concert Tours You Don't Want to Miss This Summer
Is there anything better than seeing your favorite singer or band live in concert? Memories that are marked by certain concerts are some of the times we look back on most fondly. Everyone remembers their very first concert (Britney Spears, summer of '01), and if you've ever been blessed to have seen Beyonce live, that's something you'll hold onto for the rest of your life.
So, now that it's officially summer, we put together a list of all our favorite artists who will be touring throughout the season. Some of them are on massive world tours that have spanned the course of a year already, while others are just starting out. We've included links to concert dates and tickets, so read below to find out when and where you can see these artists play.

Sam Hunt and Maren Morris: "15 In A 30 Tour"
If you are a country music fan, then you know all about Sam Hunt. We'd go to one of his concerts just to stare at him (he's beautiful, who can blame us?), but with hits like "Break Up In a Small Town" and his newest single, "Body Like a Backroad," the music is good, too. Plus, Grammy-winner Maren Morris is joining him on almost every tour stop, ending in October. Click here for dates and tickets.
Ed Sheeran: "÷ Tour"
TLC: "I Love the 90s: The Party Continues Tour"
Catch the duo on an epic comeback tour in support of their new album, TLC. They'll be on the road starting in July, featuring throwback guest acts such as Blackstreet and Naughty By Nature. Find tickets here.
Coldplay: "A Head Full of Dreams Tour"
Chris Martin has been a busy guy. Coldplay has been on tour now for over a year, and it's not over until October. June and July will see the band in Europe, but they'll be back in the States and Canada from August through the tour's end. AlunaGeorge and Tove Lo will be joining for select dates, which you can find here.
Shawn Mendes: "Illuminate World Tour"
The 18-year-old singer-songwriter has been touring in Europe since April and will return to North America starting in July, where Charlie Puth will open for him. We're also hoping for some appearances from Hailee Steinfeld, because we can't get enough of their acoustic duet on his hit, "Stitches." Find tickets here.
Khalid: "The American Teen Tour"
Lil Yachty: "The Teenage Tour"
The 19-year-old rapper is embarking on a tour in August in support of his newly released debut album, Teenage Emotions. He'll be on the road through October. Tickets are available here.
Portugal. The Man
Bruno Mars: "24K Magic World Tour"
The Weeknd: "Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour"
Katy Perry: "Witness: The Tour"
Katy Perry has given us some memorable performances in the past, from Left Shark during her Super Bowl show to Backpack Kid on Saturday Night Live, so we can't wait to see what kind of viral sensation she brings us on her upcoming tour. Kicking off Sept. 7, she'll hit both North America and Europe as she tours through June 2018.
