Remember live music? Enjoying a shared vibe in a crowd, a moment of familiarity and solidarity betwixt complete strangers, even having a $35 beer spilled on your person? Well, concerts are back, baby!

Hopefully. Coronavirus and its variants are still crisscrossing the globe playing their greatest hits, and while everyone's comfort levels may vary, our fave musicians are ready, willing, and able to rock our collective socks off.

This year promises a proper return to live concerts, with some artists making up for rescheduled shows from the past two years, established stars hitting the road again, and new acts striking out for the first time. Here, we've compiled a list of 2022 concerts and festivals to keep an eye on as those tour buses start a-hummin' — COVID-19 willing.
