As 2023 progresses, artists continue to announce their concert tours with many touring  North America. Even though Drake and Taylor Swift are two of the year’s biggest hits, here are a few of the most talked about upcoming shows in your area: 

1. Drake

In March, rapper Drake announced his new “It’s All A BlurTour,” which will open in New Orleans on June 16. He will perform at the Kaseya Center (formerly FTX Arena) on June 28 and June 29, 2023, in Miami. He is touring alongside rapper 21 Savage, Drake has not taken the stage in North America since 2018. This tour has high expectations, especially after the release of his “Certified Lover Boy” album in late 2021.

However, Taylor Swift is renowned for having a fervent following of “Swifties,” who are prepared to pay exorbitant rates.
