Mall Goths of the world, rejoice! Teen queen Lorde has added a massive U.S. tour to her already busy life on the road. Joined by the heartbreaking and totally amazing indie synth duo Majical Cloudz, Lorde hits a couple festivals before traveling to the cold Canadian north, back down to NYC and through the Midwest before concluding her seasonal run at Austin City Limits in October.
(September 6 – October 25)
Earlier this year Demi Lovato wrapped up her Neon Lights tour, joined by recent VMA winners Fifth Harmony and Little Mix. (Lady had the market cornered on girl groups, huh?) This time the sassy singer will bring fellow tattooed songwriter Christina Perri and MKTO with her for a 25-day stint. If you haven’t seen Demi before, well then, what are you waiting for?
(November 20 – December 20)
JT isn’t on the road in North America for very long, so catch him while you can! The pop star added 14 dates to his seemingly unending 20/20 Experience run, including a show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
(October 15 – November 2)
Hear that? It’s the sound of a thousand trumpets blasting in a fit of joy. Jason Derulo, suave singer numero uno, will embark on his first ever U.S. headlining tour! Exciting!

Flying Lotus’ last LP Until the Quiet Comes was met positively by both clubs and the music press. The electronic music guru has recently announced a follow-up, You’re Dead, to drop on October 7 of this year. The only move? An extensive tour! Prepare for an incredible live show, a high energy crowd and strobe lights further than the eye can see.

The rock ’n’ roll saviors have only listed a few festival dates, but we’d be royally surprised if a full tour doesn’t come together this fall. Sonic Highways, Foo Fighters’ upcoming eighth full-length, drops November 10, and its geographically-minded genesis makes it the perfect record to tour behind, especially in the States.
(September 9 – October 10)
When Sheezus is involved, you never know what’s going to happen! Lily Allen heads back to North America in early September, kicking off her 19-date run in Miami and ending at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Palladium. Will she cover Beyonce? Will Allen ever receive Kanye’s blessing? Only time will tell!
(September 12 - October 28)
Sexy singers Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull have joined forces for a national tour, one that was so popular at the onset that they expanded it from 15 dates to 24. (Fans, that’s what you get for yelling “Timber!”) The pair will hit the road mid-September in New Jersey and make their way south to Land of the Mr. 305 (aka Florida). If anyone can bring the heat in those chilly months, it’s these guys.
(October 3 – October 11)
Following in the steps of BIGBANG, Infinite and B.A.P, quintet B1A4 are the latest Korean act to tour the states … and it might end up being the most fun K-pop tour ever. During their performance at KCON earlier this month, the guys brought out super soakers to spray the crowd and provided tons of whimsical choreography. Expect even more boy-band fun from the lighthearted act on the trek that includes stops in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
(August 26 – October 1)
Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza might be fairly unknown outside of hyper-hip circles, but that’s all about to change. Her music is full of shine and substance, perfect for a vintage dancehall. If you prefer slick production and early house to modern-day EDM, look no further!
(September 25 - October 24)
If Kacey Musgraves’ unique blend of smart pop and hometown country only rings slightly familiar to you, it’s probably because you’ve seen her name in conjunction with Katy Perry. The young singer opened the Prismatic Tour, but this time she's hitting the road on her lonesome. The Same Tour Different Trailer trek kicks off in the South and navigates through the Midwest, eventually ending in New Braunfels, TX.
(October 31 – December 13)
Metalcore-pop band Issues turned heads at this year’s Warped Tour and the fun isn’t ending there. The guys will headline Journeys Noise Tour this fall alongside I Killed the Prom Queen and fellow Warped alumni Ghost Tour. It starts on Halloween (spooked yet?) and ends early December. Christmas came early, punks.
(October 15 - November 26)
Wu-Tang Clan members Method Man and Redman will take to the streets with their fifth annual Smoker’s Club Tour, this time with the help of up-and-comers Mick Jenkins, Taylor Gang, Berner and B-Real. The rap duo have also announced they will collaborate on a full-length later this year titled Blackout 3. Busy guys!
(September 8 – November 19)
Alt-country heavyweight Ryan Adams is hitting the road this autumn following the release of his self-titled, fourteenth full-length. Impressive stuff! The tour kicks off at Washington D.C.’s famed 9:30 Club, hitting the Midwest and the West Coast before concluding at Philly’s Tower Theatre. Here’s hoping wife Mandy Moore accompanies him and maybe site in for a few songs. "Candy," anyone?
(September 26 – October 19)
Skrillex makes music for dancing, and no one would argue otherwise. What’s better than going to the club and actually seeing the 20-something live? This autumn you can do just that, with the added bonus of catching sets by special guests like DJ Mustard, Kaytranada, DJ Snake and A$AP Ferg. Sounds like a party if we’ve ever heard one!
