Rolling Stones Tickets | Last Tour: 2007
The timeless wonders piqued everyone’s interest late in 2012 when news broke of a forthcoming fresh single, compilation album, and handful of shows to commemorate a pretty major milestone. Yes, that’s right, the Rolling Stones officially turned 50 this year, leading many to believe a full-scale global tour was all but certain. Alas, the group opted for just a pair of shows in London, New York, and New Jersey to close out the year, leaving many to continue wishing for a grand return in 2013.
Dave Matthews Band Tickets | Last Tour: 2012
Of all the potential tours on our list, this one is probably the closest thing to a guarantee. Save for the brief tour hiatus in 2011, which still saw the Dave Matthews Band Caravan perform in a number of cities, the band has spent over two decades on the road and that will most likely continue next summer. In the mean time, browse the remaining 2012 Winter Tour dates and get one last DMB fix before the year’s up.
Justin Bieber Tickets | Last Tour: 2012
Recently bumped from YouTube’s top spot by a little song called “Gangnam Style,” there’s no doubt Justin Bieber and his army of loyal fans are already working to reclaim the throne. While he’ll still have some dates from the 2012 Believe Tour to fulfill in January, there’s always the potential for more to come later in the year, so be sure to check back often for up-to-date news regarding any Justin Bieber 2013 tour information.
Aerosmith Tickets | Last Tour: 2012
Aerosmith treated fans to two installments of the 2012 Global Warming Tour, ultimately finishing out the year with performances throughout the summer and into the fall and winter, along with opener, Cheap Trick. The venture was keyed by the release of the band’s first brand new album in eight years, Music From Another Dimension, which has led the group to express interest in a major world tour for 2013 to continue playing and promoting their new tunes. For now, you can catch Aerosmith’s remaining 2012 dates in California, Louisiana, Florida, and Tennessee.
No Doubt Tickets | Last Tour: 2009
It took 11 years, but No Doubt finally resurfaced in 2012 with a brand new album, Push and Shove, the band’s sixth release since forming way back in 1986. A small sampling of shows scheduled for the final weeks of the year led many to ponder whether a full-fledged 2013 tour would follow in the New Year, but so far, the rumors have remained just that…for now.
U2 | Last Tour: 2011
As one of the most successful touring acts of all time, U2 makes it count whenever heading out on the road. A very quiet 2012 has only contributed to the growing whispers and hopes for a 2013 tour in the band’s future. The most recent outing was the multi-year, seven-leg, 360° Tour, which totaled 110 shows and claimed the top tour spot in 2009 and 2011 and second place in 2010, just behind fellow tour powerhouse, Bon Jovi.
Bruno Mars | Last Tour: 2011
Bruno Mars has experienced a whirlwind of success since his 2010 debut album, Doo-Wops and Hooligans, launched him permanently into the spotlight. Impressively, he’s been able to sustain that momentum, which helped lead to strong sales of his first single, Locked Out of Heaven, released in October ahead of his sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, set to drop in December. Mars also received praise for his Saturday Night Live hosting debut, which helped fuel the desire for a return to the road.

Fleetwood Mac | Last Tour: 2009
Another year has all but come and gone without a reunion from Fleetwood Mac, but vocalist Stevie Nicks gave plenty of reason to hold out hope still. During an interview on CBS This Morning back in July, the singer revealed the group’s intentions to reunite in 2013, which would make for Fleetwood Mac’s first road trek since the Unleashed Tour in 2009, so keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned!
