    There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just come out with it: we’ve officially reached the worst part of winter. It’s the end of January; all of the celebratory momentum of the holidays has dissipated into a procession of gray days, crummy weather, and the impatient realization that spring is still two months away. At a time like this, everybody needs an easy daydream, and there’s no fantasy easier than visions of a concert on a warm summer night.

    After an inarguably strong year for music in 2019, the concert schedule for 2020 is suitably stacked. Whether you’re catching legends-in-the-making like Billie Eilish and BTS, reliving the dream of the ’90s with Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, or just feverishly refreshing your favorite artist’s homepage to see if they’ve finally announced a date near you, your choices for live music have rarely been better.

    That’s where StubHub comes in. In more than 50 countries worldwide, the online ticket-selling marketplace makes buying tickets to must-see shows and events quick, painless, and easy.

    Right now, they’ve already got tickets to hundreds of spring and summer tours across the country and around the world. To help you narrow down your choices and fill in your live music dance card, we’ve compiled a list of 35 of the year’s most anticipated tours, from shows celebrating anniversaries (25 years of Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill!) to the simple fact of summer itself (Phish’s legendary amphitheater jams). Once you’ve made up your mind, head over to StubHub, where they’ll put the ticket in your hand and your body in the seat.


    Now that’s something worth looking forward to.
