One month into 2014 and I already have a full wish list of concerts I want to see this year! Some of my favorite pop performers (as well as some headline-making artists) have announced massive nationwide tours to make our summer just a little sweeter.
While you have plenty of options whatever your musical preferences, here is a list of the top five pop tours I cannot wait to attend in 2014.
5. Justin Timberlake – Tickets
2013 saw Justin Timberlake embark on the massive Legends of Summer tour with Jay-Z. If you didn’t catch him last year, he has extended his touring to promote his 20/20 Experience album. There’s no doubt Timberlake has mastered performing both these songs and other swoon-worthy tracks. He and his “Suit and Tie” will undoubtedly be a great show.
4. Demi Lovato – Tickets
Demi Lovato is the first former Disney star to head out on the road in 2014. From her impressive belt to her sass (anyone been watching The X Factor?), Lovato is one of my favorite pop female singers. After struggling with personal problems and coming out alright, Lovato is stronger and more emotional than ever. Fifth Harmony and Cher Lloyd are set to open, making this tour a pop-lover’s dream.
3. Miley Cyrus with Icona Pop – Tickets
After Miley Cyrus’ decision to shock the world in 2013 with her onstage antics and tongue-wagging photo ops, it’s hard to believe this former Disney star can top her outrageous behavior. Promoting her 2013 release, Bangerz, Cyrus will take her party anthems across the nation, and opening act Icona Pop will certainly start the dance party right.
2. Lady Gaga – Tickets
While Lady Gaga is one of the most unpredictable artists in the pop scene today, fans can be certain of one thing: her ARTPOP Ball tour won’t be just a concert, but a perfectly polished, over-the-top show. Lady Gaga takes her artistic (and oftentimes head-scratching) vision for songs and shows very seriously, and her beloved “little monsters” will definitely appreciate this tour, also labeled as an “art rave” (your guess is as good as mine what that will entail).
1. Katy Perry with Tegan and Sara – Tickets
Katy Perry is on top of the world. She is one of the hardest-working women in the music industry and has a record amount of number one songs to prove it. Her tours are always entertaining and impressively staged, so this year’s Prismatic world tour, with support from Tegan and Sara here in the US and Icona Pop abroad, will certainly be another for the record books.
