12 CAN’T-MISS TOURS OF 2019


From Mariah Carey’s Caution World Tour to Meek Mill’s Championships victory lap, here are a dozen acts you should check out on stage over the next 12 months

1 ARIANA GRANDE 


The pop queen will keep the Sweetener train rolling with a world tour that hits more than 70 stops across two continents— including a “special show” in Manchester, England, the location of a 2017 suicide bombing that took place after a Grande performance

CARRIE UNDERWOOD

 

The country star is boarding her bus for the Cry Pretty 360 tour, launching in Greensboro, N.C., in May. As the title suggests, the 2018 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year will be playing in the round. Openers Runaway June and Maddie & Tae come along for the ride

CHER 


Cher will spend her 2019 the same way she spent 2018: knee-deep in Swedish pop. After kicking things off in New Zealand, the iconic singer will bring her Here We Go Again tour and its slate of ABBA covers Stateside. (Cue fans screaming, “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!”) The run starts in Estero, Fla., later this month.

QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT 


After the box office success of Bohemian Rhapsody, the rock legends—fronted by the power-lunged American Idol alum—return to the road for the Rhapsody tour in July (Rami Malek not included)

DEAD AND CO. 


It wouldn’t be summer without the Dead. The sunshine daydream crew of Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and John Mayer return for a 19-stop stint across America—their sixth tour since launching in 2015. It all kicks off May 31 in Mountain View, Calif.

JOHN MELLENCAMP 


The famous Hoosier gets things rolling on the John Mellencamp Show in his home state in February. He’s touring in support of his 24th release, a compilation of covers he’s recorded over the years, aptly titled Other People’s Stuff. Expect to hear those songs and his own stuff, too

MARIAH CAREY 


In addition to her continued Las Vegas residency, the diva will be giving her sleeper 2018 record Caution the live treatment with the 22-city Caution World Tour. No word yet on whether there will be milk baths

PAUL MCCARTNEY 


The pop icon is ready to Freshen Up, as he’s dubbed his next round of tour dates playing Beatles hits and solo favorites with his crack band. The trek begins in Chile in March and comes Stateside in May with a July date at Dodger Stadium

MEEK MILL 


Meek Mill capped last year with a No. 1 album (the fittingly titled Championships, his first fulllength effort since his April 2018 release from prison). Expect the wins to continue for the Philadelphia rapper as he launches his anticipated Motivation Tour with a 16-city trip across America.

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK 


Step 1: You will have lots of fun... reliving the glory days of NKOTB and era-appropriate openers like Salt-N-Pepa. Step 2: There’s so much you can do...to prepare, like find your acid-washed jeans. Step 3–5: You know the drill. The time arrives May 2.

ROLLING STONES 


Break out the moves like Jagger and your best Keith Richards skull rings. Almost six decades after their debut, the World’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band is hitting the road for the 13-city No Filter tour, their first U.S. run since 2015

VINCE STAPLES 


One of rap’s wittiest artists brings one of rap’s wittiest albums of 2018 (the terrestrial radio-themed FM!) to arenas across the States with his Smile, You’re on Camera trek. Staples will open things up in Tucson, Ariz., on Feb. 1 and travel to 37 cities
