1. Beyonce

Whether or not you’re a huge fan of Beyonce, seeing her live is sure to be an irreplaceable experience. From her dynamic, powerful vocals to her commanding stage presence, Beyonce is one musical artist you won’t forget any time soon after you see her in concert.

2. Bruno Mars

One of the most dynamic artists of our time, Bruno Mars is another singer you don’t want to miss. With the ability to not only pump you up and get you dancing on your feet, but also captivate you with his soulful lyrics and vocals, Bruno Mars is sure to be an exciting act that will leave you buzzing with energy long after you’ve left the concert. It’s a bonus if you’re familiar with his songs (most likely you already are), which will give you the chance to sing and dance along. What’s more, his music and performance style are perfectly suited to a wide range of audience members, no matter their age. That’s the mark of a truly talented artist right there!

3. Adele

If you’re really craving some soulful vocals, Adele is your woman. From some of her older songs such as “Rolling in the Deep” to more recent ones such as “Hello,” Adele proves to be a powerhouse time and again. Her voice is so distinctive and captivating that it’s sure to leave you feeling wide-eyed and on the edge of your seat throughout the performance.

4. Kanye West

Kanye’s shows can often be a bit unpredictable, which is probably why they’re so much fun! If you’re in for a night of entertainment and nonstop energy, go see Kanye in live concert. You won’t regret your decision.

5. Panic! At the Disco

Whether or not you’re a huge fan of this musical group, you should know that they have a record of selling out their concerts. Maybe that’s enough on its own to get you to consider going to one of those concerts (of course, before the rest of the tickets sell out). Besides that, Panic! At the Disco has some really great songs that will get you jamming out in no time.

6. Lady Gaga

Maybe Lady Gaga isn’t for everyone, but you can’t stop from admitting that she commands attention in powerful ways when she gets up onstage. If you’re looking for flashing lights and glitz and glamour all at once, she’s the performer for you. Yet, if you also happen to be looking for compelling vocals that come straight from the heart, Lady Gaga is also a perfect choice.

7. Rihanna

Like many of the other artists on this list, Rihanna is another musical performer who exudes confidence and power onstage. Combine her glowing presence with her strong vocals, and you’ve got a solid reason to see her perform live.

8. Eminem

While in a category of his own compared to everyone else on this list, Eminem is a super dynamic artist and hip-hop legend who belongs on your bucket list of musical artists to see in live concert. Even if you’re not the biggest fan of rap or of Eminem, we encourage you to give his music a try — at least listen to a few of his songs and allow yourself the chance to appreciate it. If you end up enjoying it and decide to go to a concert of his, you’ll be thanking yourself for a while.

9. Jay Z

A live Jay Z concert is one place you can go to feel included in the entire show and performance. What’s more, if you’ve already been to some of his previous concerts, you won’t be getting the same performance twice. Don’t hesitate to jump on the chance to see this dynamic artist in person; you won’t regret it!

Whether you decide to see any (or all) of these artists in live concert either sometime in the next few months or far off in the nebulous future, you have a lot of options to pick from. Take advantage of these artists while you’ve got the chance and create some memories you won’t forget anytime soon.
