Return of Live Concerts

Return+of+Live+Concerts

Lights, camera, action! Music artists are back in action with world tours after two years in the pandemic. With online concerts and meet and greets throughout 2020, the artists are excited to meet their fans face-to-face once again.

Big Time Rush

Unlike other artists that halted their tours, Big Time Rush had a big-time break. If it hasn’t come to mind, Big Time Rush is a boy band that starred on Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush” with four members: Kendall Schmidt, Carlos PenaVega, Logan Henderson, and James Maslow. Unfortunately, this tour, unlike their previous tours, won’t be a worldwide tour and will only have two stops — New York and Chicago.

The prices start from $400 all the way to $2,448.88 per ticket on Ticketmaster and range from $267 to $1,610 on VividSeats.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish is back with her Happier Than Ever, The World Tour. Billie Eilish has had over 500 concerts — this being her sixth world tour since her career skyrocketed.

The world tour has 50 stops, including Australia, Canada, Germany, and all over the U.S. According to Stadium Help, the setlist includes “bury a friend”, “you should see me in a crown”, and one of her most popular songs, “Happier Than Ever”.

Before the start of her world tour, Billie Eilish will also be playing Sally in live-to-film “The Nightmare Before Christmas” on Oct. 29 and Oct. 31.

“It’s Billie’s world, we’re just living in it,” TripleJ said.

BTS

On Oct. 24, BTS held an online concert for “BTS Permission To Dance On Stage”, which streamed to 197 countries worldwide.

BTS is not necessarily coming back with a world tour yet, but their “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE” events come close to a world tour. From Nov. 27 to Dec. 2, they will have four live performances with a real audience at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. These are the first live audience performances that BTS will be holding since the start of the pandemic.

The tickets to all four days of the events sold out within one day. Their fandom, ARMY, jokes that their tickets sold out within “one minute”. The tickets are being resold on Ticketmaster starting from $350 and going up to $15,338.

“The in-person concert will proceed under the national and regional health regulations and circumstances,” the LA Press released. “This concert will be the first time ever for BTS and ARMY to meet face to face since the 2019 BTS WORLD TOUR ‘LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF’ [THE FINAL].”

Following their four concerts, BTS will be heading to The Forum in Inglewood, Ca on Dec. 3 to perform for the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour.

Justin Bieber

Being a worldwide sensation since 2009, Justin Bieber has had over six world tours–this being his seventh tour, which has unfortunately been postponed twice since the pandemic.

Since title hits such as “Yummy” and “Stuck With U ‘, Justin Bieber has been unable to perform in-person since 2019. Shortly after the song titles, he released his new album, Justice, this past March.

The Justice world tour will begin on Feb. 22, 2022. The tour itself includes 45 stops that start in February and end in June right in the heart of Washington DC.

“We’re working hard to make this tour the best one yet,” Bieber said to Rolling Stone. “I’m excited to get out there and engage with my fans again.”

“Justice” concert tickets range from $94 to $558 for official platinum on Ticketmaster and range from $237 to $2021 on VividSeats as many stops have already sold out.

We’re working hard to make this tour the best one yet . . .”

Ed Sheeran

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who is known for his songs like “Don’t”, “Perfect”, and “Thinking Out Loud” is coming back with a new album, Equals (=), which will release on Oct. 29, 2021. His new album Equals (=), follows his previous album in 2017, Divided (÷).

Sheeran had announced in 2019 that he would be taking a break from touring for 18 months due to legal issues, and he hasn’t been back since.

Following the album release, his Europe tour, + – = ÷ x, will consist of 53 stops going all the way from Ireland to Sweden.

Ed Sheeran’s + – = ÷ x tour tickets are mostly sold out, and resale tickets go from $131.63 each to $136.60 on Ticketmaster, while VividSeats limited tickets are being resold for around $400 to $600.

Unfortunately, Ed Sheeran will not be visiting the states or other parts of the world, but he will be part of the Jingle Ball Tour.

Ed Sheeran will be joining artists Dua Lipa, BTS, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, and more performing on Dec. 3 for Jingle Ball in Inglewood, Ca. He will also be performing for Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden in New York on Dec. 10.

With the upcoming tours throughout 2021 and 2022, artists such as Justin Bieber and Big Time Rush are thrilled to make a comeback and meet their fans once again.
