Good Charlotte

Justin Coit

What: Youth Authority Tour

When: Oct. 23 to Nov. 23

Why you should go: This marks Good Charlotte's first U.S. trek after a six-year hiatus, so the anticipation is running high.

What: Fall Suburbia Tour

When: Oct. 16 to Nov. 18

Why you should go: The Australian singer’s fame continues to rise at a rapid pace, so now is the perfect time to catch Troye's blissful tunes live before he turns into a full-fledged pop star.—Bianca Gracie

3 / 22

Esperanza Spalding

Aubree Lennon for Fuse

What: North American run in support of Emily's D+Evolution

When: Sept. 29 to Oct. 30

Why you should go: The 2011 Best New Artist GRAMMY-winning singer/bassist/cellist rewrote her modern jazz formula with her March LP, and now we'll see her bring the Emily alias to life. When an artist of this caliber does something truly different, in lieu of Another Standard Tour, you don't wanna flirt with FOMO.—Zach Dionne

4 / 22

Boys Noize

CHICAGO, IL - JUNE 30: Boys Noize performs on stage during Wavefront Music Festival at Montrose Beach on June 30, 2012 in Chi
Daniel Boczarski

What: The Germany DJ's 2016 North American Tour

When: Oct. 5 to Nov. 11

Why you should go: The techno-grime producer is bringing his intense show across the continent this fall with a set that boasts visuals sure to be just as hardcore as his music. After spending the summer playing festivals around Europe, Boys Noize's tour kicks off in Los Angeles in October.—Jeff Benjamin

5 / 22


CHICAGO, IL - AUGUST 01: (L-R) Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius perform during 2014 Lollapalooza at Grant Park on Augus
Erika Goldring/FIlmMagic

What: Lucius’ fall tour

When: Sept. 17 to Nov. 20

Why you should go: With two lead singers, you’re bound to have twice the fun. When the folk band goes on tour this fall, you’ll be getting all the fierceness from 2016’s Good Grief, plus the cooler feeling of 2013's Wildewoman. Make sure that if you’re going with a friend, you're wearing matching outfits.—Emilee Lindner

6 / 22

Anthony Hamilton

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JULY 08:  Anthony Hamilton performs during the 2012 Essence Music Festival at Louisiana Superdome on July 8
Erika Goldring

What: The vocal powerhouse's upcoming October trek

When: Oct. 6 to Oct. 30

Why you should go: After hitting the road with Fantasia earlier this year, the R&B fave Anthony Hamilton is back again for a new tour to support his recently released What I'm Feelin’ album that will focus mainly on theaters in the south and Midwest. Everything kicks off in Durham, North Carolina, on Oct. 6, so if it's not coming to your city, we're giving you the heads up now to book tickets to see those powerful pipes live.—Jeff Benjamin

7 / 22


Wrasse Records/UMG

What: The U.S. leg of the J-pop/techno trio's Cosmic Explorer Tour

When: Aug. 26 to Sept. 4

Why you should go: One of Japan's most beloved acts is back with their largest U.S. tour to date. This time, Perfume are hitting new cities and playing larger crowds while still bringing their exciting mix of high-energy bangers and brilliant visuals.—Jeff Benjamin

8 / 22

The 1975

INDIO, CA - APRIL 17: Musician Matthew Healy of The 1975 performs onstage during day 3 of the 2016 Coachella Valley Music And
Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Coachella

What: The 1975’s added tour dates

When: nonstop

Why you should go: Do The 1975 ever stop touring? In 2014, the Brits were named the hardest working band for playing 195 shows in a year, and there’s no doubt that they’re trying to reach that number again in 2016. Yet, with each gig they play, Matt Healy and co. make the crowd feel special, giving you something to scream about. Buy tickets for a show that will be a playful blend of narcissism and selflessness when Healy throws a suit jacket over his bare chest and slings the electro-pop-rock once again.—Emilee Lindner

What: Fall tour

When: Oct. 28 to Nov. 23

Why you should go: Evanescence is ending a pretty long touring hiatus, and Amy Lee’s acrobatic vocals are ready to tear back through North America. Could we be hearing some new tunes that exist outside of Lee’s recently announced children’s album? Here’s hoping.—Jason Lipshutz

10 / 22

Sia & Miguel

What: Nostalgia For The Present Tour

When: Sept. 10 to Nov. 6

Why you should go: Sia was one of the summer’s big winners, with her first No. 1 hit as a lead artist (“Cheap Thrills”), and just as importantly, a string of killer festival performances. With Miguel and AlunaGeorge opening and Maddie Ziegler joining Sia onstage, the extended fall run will bring one of pop’s most visionary artists to arena crowds.—Jason Lipshutz

11 / 22

Puff Daddy & The Bad Boy Family

LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 19: Rappers Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs (L) and Lil' Kim perform onstage at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music
John Shearer

What: Bad Boy Family Reunion tour 

When: Aug. 25 to Oc. 8

Why you should go: Diddy's two night-only Bad Boy Reunion shows that took over Brooklyn in May were so incredible that the mogul decided to expand it to a full tour. Get ready to see your favorite artists from the ‘90s and early ‘00s (Lil KimFaith EvansMase, etc.) perform all the classic hits you grew up with.—Bianca Gracie

12 / 22

Chance the Rapper

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - AUGUST 07:  Musician Chance the Rapper performs onstage during Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park on Augus

What: The continuation of the Magnificent Coloring World Tour

When: Sept. 15 to Oct. 21

Why you should go: Because you like listening to the joyous, inventive, gospel-infused hip-hop that comes from Chicago's favorite 23-year-old. "Special guests" is the only info we've got on openers for now, but we're hoping there'll be some Coloring Book guest stars there to help Chance the Rapper bring one of the year's absolute best albums to life.—Zach Dionne

13 / 22

Brand New

CLARKSTON, MI - JULY 03:  Jesse Lacey of Brand New performs at DTE Energy Music Theater on July 3, 2016 in Clarkston, Michiga
Scott Legato/Getty Images

What: Brand New's tour

When: Oct. 13 to Dec. 8

Why you should go: Brand New keep going back and forth about whether they're retiring, but we know one thing for sure, the Long Island emo rockers are going on tour this fall. After going on the road with Modest Mouse, they'll be rolling all over North America again. Get tickets because you never know if this might be the last time. (And check out The Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball while you're at it.)—Emilee Lindner

14 / 22

Norah Jones

LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 06:  Musician Norah Jones performs onstage at the 25th anniversary MusiCares 2015 Person Of The Ye

What: North American run in support of Day Breaks

When: Oct. 18 to Oct. 28 and Nov. 28 to Dec. 10

Why you should go: Norah Jones' sixth studio album took four years to get here, and now it's time to celebrate the Oct. 7 release in a concert hall with all your fellow Jones-heads. While her pop-rock and country sides have shone for a good while, she says “this new album feels full circle because I'm going back to my early influences."—Zach Dionne

What: The Fuck Donald Trump Tour

When: Sept. 18 to Dec. 4

Why you should go: Because you'll get to sing "FDT" with a crowd of likeminded individuals. Because there's just no way to build a bad setlist out of YG's My Krazy Life and Still Brazy. And because Kamaiyah, who gave us one of the hottest mixtapes of the year, is opening, as are RJ and SadBoy.—Zach Dionne

AUSTIN, TX - MARCH 16:  Mitski performs at Stubbs on March 16, 2016 in Austin, Texas.  (Photo by Lorne Thomson/Redferns)
Lorne Thomson/Redferns

What: Tour in support of Puberty 2

When: Nov. 1 to Nov. 21

Why you should go: After hitting up Europe, Mitski will charm America again with a second tour in support of Puberty 2, her fourth album. Just being in the audience, witnessing the drama and intensity you could get with just an electric guitar and sweet-yet-scary voice, should be enough reason to buy a ticket.—Emilee Lindner

17 / 22


Jatnna Nuñez for Fuse

What: The Final World Tour

When: Oct. 6 to Nov. 22

Why you should go: Hearts were crushed when Yellowcard wrote, "Once this final chapter for Yellowcard comes to a close, we will all be heading in new directions in our lives, but these memories will never leave us.” in their official breakup statement in June. Despite their fans’ sad feelings, it’s only right to rock out with the Florida band one last time.—Bianca Gracie

18 / 22

Pretty Reckless

Maarten de Boer/Getty Images

What: North American Tour

When: Oct. 20 to Dec. 6

Why you should go: The Pretty Reckless' new album, Who You Selling For, arrives the day after their tour kicks off, so expect them to play a bevy of new tunes (like the gritty lead single “Take Me Down”). Plus, front woman Taylor Momsen’s wild child stage outfits are always an inspiration.—Bianca Gracie

19 / 22

Kanye West

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 28:  Kanye West performs onstage during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden on Aug
Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic

What: Saint Pablo Tour

When: Aug. 25 to Oct. 29

Why you should go: If the idea of hearing Kanye West’s latest album, The Life of Pablo, live in its full effect doesn’t excite you, then this awesome floating stage design should do the trick. The artist is also known for pulling off surprise elements in his show.—Bianca Gracie

20 / 22

Post Malone

What: The Hollywood Dreams Tour

When: Sept. 14 to Nov. 9

Why you should go: After seeing Post Malone open for Justin Bieber on the Purpose World Tour, you'll witness a slightly different crowd filing in for the White Iverson's headlining gigs. Although his Stoney album was supposed to drop in August, he promises new tunes soon. Bieber is supposed to feature on the LP, so, who knows? Maybe you'll see JB on this trek too.—Emilee Lindner

21 / 22

Lauryn Hill

When: The MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! Tour

When: Aug: 27 to Nov. 13

Why you should go: Lauryn Hill will be bringing along different guests at each stop of her tour this fall, illuminating the beauty of the African diaspora, she wrote with her announcement. "In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities," she wrote.—Emilee Lindner

22 / 22

Sum 41

Jatnna Nuñez for Fuse

What: Don’t Call It a Sum Back Tour
