It was a great year filled with many great rock shows. I recently asked you guys about your favorite concerts of the year. I may have to tabulate the votes and post them soon.
Now, we look forward to next year hoping it can be as good as 2023. Lucky for us, 2024 is poised to be a great year because some of the biggest names in rock are hitting the road for tours in 2024.
It’s going to be hard for 2024 to live up to 2023, but it look like it can be done!
Rock Tours Happening In 2024
Some well-known bands came to Detroit in 2023. We had an epic weekend with Metallica, where they put on two spectacular shows on a Friday and Sunday night. Check out parts one and two of my interview with Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo.
We also had a great time at Pine Knob for Riff Fest 2023. Headliners sat this year’s Riff Fest were I Prevail, Bad Omens, and Rival Sons. If you missed out, check out the entire setlist from Riff Fest 2023.
Additionally, we had shows from Godsmack, Staind, Ghost, Greta Van Fleet, Nickelback, Shinedown and more! As you can see, 2024 has a lot to live up to compared to this year.
Thankfully, there are already some massive rock tours hitting the road in 2024. I went through the list and found five of the biggest bands that are hitting the road next year. Picking five was tough! There are so many excellent bands hitting the road next year. Of course, the bands the make the list aren’t necessarily my five favorites. They’re just five of the biggest shows hitting the road, regardless of whether or not it’s a show I’m into. This isn’t about me after all. I’m trying to help you!
Only picking five shows means some great tours got left off the list. Mammoth WVH isn’t on the list but you should be aware of their tour. Godsmack is coming back to the area, as well. Let’s get to the list!
