Plenty Of Tours Announced For 2022: One Reason To Be Hopeful

tours announced for 2022

After the disastrous year that 2020 was, 2021 brings some hope for live music as we may see some concerts at reduced capacity this summer and fall. But 2022 will be an amazing explosion of events like we haven’t seen before. Why? Simply because all these postponed tours will be rescheduled in 2022. I tend to think that all these tours announced for 2022 these past days are only the beginning of this explosion.

Rage Against the Machine have rescheduled their tour with Run the Jewels, starting March 2022 till August and all purchased tickets will be honored for the shows that were postponed. There are still no dates in Los Angeles but since they were supposed to headline one day of Coachella, we can speculate this will be happening again between April 6 and April 26, as the tour has a gap that could coincide with the two weeks of Coachella.

Roger Waters has rescheduled his ‘This Is Not a Drill Tour’ for Summer 2022, which was supposed to happen last summer; of course, the tickets originally purchased for 2020 will still be valid for this 2022 run. This is a 36-date tour, crossing the entire North American continent and tickets are already available. There are 2 September dates in LA, but who wants to buy a ticket for a show that will happen in 18 months!

Guns N’ Roses have rescheduled their European tour dates to 2022 with new shows featuring Gary Clark Jr. Meanwhile the US dates, rescheduled for summer 2021, seem to be happening? I would still put a big question mark there.

Judas Priest also have a long European/US tour scheduled which will even start this summer and stretch till summer 2022.

Eric Church has also rescheduled his tour, and his first live dates are actually this summer, as he will play a few 2021 summer music festivals. He will tour all winter and spring long and the arenas are supposed to be sold at 100% capacity.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced a large 2022 tour, a series of dates in Europe and North America. They will start in Europe in January, and then they’ll hit up the U.S. and Canada in February, till May, with a date in LA in early March.

The Damned (original line-up) have scheduled a short UK tour for February 2022. They will only play five shows in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Manchester and celebrate the 45th anniversary of their historic debut album, ‘Damned Damned Damned.’

Besides these 2022 dates, plenty of major artists still have mega shows scheduled for this summer, which is around the corner. Will they be able to maintain these stadium shows? This is still uncertain but here are a few examples

Justin Bieber’s world tour has been rescheduled for this summer, somewhat modified, but with 19 new arena dates. It is supposed to go from June to August 2021

Green Day-Fall Out Boy-Weezer’s Hella Mega world tour seems to still be going strong as they have maintained all their dates, kicking off in June in Vienna before their dates in the US and a stop at the Dodger Stadium in July? Hard to believe.

Lady Gaga’s Chromatica Ball tour has dates for this summer in Europe and the US, we’ll see how this goes.

Harry Styles has plenty of dates from August 2021 to October all across the US… But there are many other examples

Now if Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds would reschedule the tour that they canceled in 2020, I would truly look for 2022.
