Nothing beats the charm of a concert. Blaring music, ringing ears, and crowds of screaming strangers feels electrifying. Thankfully, a handful of musical sensations are heading to Arizona! 

The 1975, Ricky Montgomery, and Lil Nas X are only a fraction of the artists counting on their Arizona fans to join them for an unforgettable night. This month we saw Slipknot, Stevie Nicks, and $uicideBoy$, so what is next for music lovers? Starting with Oct. 21, 2022, hip-hop artist Lil Nas X performs at Arizona Financial Theater. On Oct. 23, 2022 Footprint Center is expecting alternative band Panic! At The Disco. Up next, The Van Buren is preparing for indie/rock musician Alex G on the 24th, and wrapping up the month with pop singer King Princess on Oct. 31, 2022. 

Concerts are just the place to deeply connect with friends, family, and even strangers. Lucky for Arizonans, November is packed with even more unmissable shows. Kicking off the month is indie/rock band Mother Mother, with a performance at Arizona Financial Theater. Following is pop/rock group MANESKIN, on Nov. 10, 2022. Soon after, alternative/indie musician beabadoobee plays on the 11th; see her at The Van Buren. Ending the week is pop/rock composer Elton John’s concert at Chase Field. Furthermore, fans of the alternative/pop singer Ricky Montgomery can expect him at Crescent Ballroom, on Nov. 14, 2022. However, the performances do not end here.
