10 must see concerts this fall


Skylar Hurley, Staff Writer

Famous artists have been dropping new albums every week, each one rising to the top of the charts. As more and more albums are released, the question becomes: What artists do I have to see live? Here are the top 10 concerts to attend this fall.

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran will be in Tampa on November 7th, 7pm, at the Raymond James Stadium. This concert will be one of his many stops for his Divide tour promoting his recent album. Tickets can be anywhere from $50 to $250, but are selling out due to his popularity. Sheeran’s concerts are known for having a great set list, but also a sense of intimacy as he performs while playing his guitar.

Lil Uzi Vert 

Lil Uzi Vert will be at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater on September 7th at 6:30pm with G-Easy as his opening act. Tickets range from $30 to $100, depending on how close you get. His concerts are filled with as excitement as he bounces on stage and interacts with his fans.

Twenty One Pilots

On November 3rd at 7pm, Twenty One Pilots will be at Amelie Arena. Twenty One Pilots rose to fame in 2015 with their single “Stressed Out”, but have been on hiatus for more than a year. Recently, they announced their album Trench, and their world tour, The Bandito Tour. Tickets range from $200 to $550, but are worth it. Their concerts are electric with energy, with the two members utilizing many props and flashing lights to keep fans entertained.

Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth will be performing August 31st at 7:30pm at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater. Tickets range from $20 to $100, a good price because of flexibility in how much the tickets cost. Personally, I reccomend the lawn tickets, you still have a good view and unlike the seats, you can dance and go wild. This is his first solo tour with him performing music from his album Voicenotes.

Niall Horan

Niall Horan will be in Tampa for one of his many stops for his Flicker world tour on September 22nd at 7pm at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater, where he’ll perform his hit songs like “Slow Hands” and “This Town”. Tickets range from $30 to $250,  due to not only to leftover popularity from his One Direction era, but from Horan’s own talent. Flicker is Horan’s first album after splitting from One Direction, so this show will be a great experience if you’re still a Niall girl.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z

Beyoncé and JAY-Z will be in Orlando on August 29th at 7:30pm, for their OTR II tour, at the Camping World Stadium. Tickets are selling from $50 to $400, but as it is Beyoncé, she could price her tickets higher and fans would still come. She and JAY-Z, her husband, are performing from their joint album EVERYTHING IS LOVE.  Beyoncé’s concerts are known not only for their choreography, but for her many costume-changes and interactions with her husband. The opening acts are DJ Khaled and Chloe x Halle, popular artists in their own right.

Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy performs at Amway Arena in Orlando on September 16th at 7:00 pm. The band is on their Mania tour for their recent album. Tickets are from $35 to $180, a good price for a popular band. Performing old and new music, Fall Out Boy is known for using nostalgia to draw fans in, then keeping them in by continuing to release exceptional music.

Romeo Santos

Romeo Santos performs on October 10th at 8pm, at the Amalie Arena, on his Golden tour. The 2017 Golden album peaked as number 1 on the Billboard Top US Latin Albums, with songs featuring artists such as Daddy Yankee and Jessie Reyez. His tickets range from $60 to $300. Santos has become a prominent artist in Latin music, so his concerts are sure to reflect that.

Milky Chance

Milky Chance performs on October 10th at 7pm, at The Ritz Ybor in Tampa. They’re lesser known, but still make great music, and are currently on their Blossom tour. Tickets are exactly $30 as it is general admission, and a general admission concert is always more exciting because of the crowd around you. Milky Chance’s concerts are known for their positive vibes, and it will be a great respite from the stress of normal life.

These are all a wide array of artists with something in common: they know how to put on show. If you’d like to go, I’d buy tickets sooner rather than later, as these concerts are something you won’t want to miss.
