Lady Gaga Tickets | 2013 Born This Way Ball: Jan. – March
Though she featured a healthy offering of shows in 2012, Lady Gaga has even more in store for her loyal Little Monsters in the New Year. Gaga’s forthcoming third studio album, ARTPOP, is expected to be released in the spring, ahead of the 2013 Born This Way Ball tour dates which will launch in North America on January 11-12 in Vancouver. She’ll hit over 25 cities through mid-March, including double nights in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Toronto, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Brooklyn, with the venture set to wrap up on March 16 in Miami. As has been utilized in years past, the tour will likely include the “Monster Pit,” which offers diehards the potential to earn a spot right in front of the stage, much to the delight of fans who opt to camp outside the venue and don their best outfit fit for a “Ball.”
Pink Tickets | 2013 The Truth About Love Tour: Feb. – March
The wait is over for Pink fans, as the GRAMMY winner will toast her latest album, The Truth About Love, with a 2013 tour of the same name. Over a period of just less than two months, Pink will perform 26 North American shows in various sports arenas beginning at US Airways Center in Phoenix on Feb. 13 and concluding March 28 at TD Garden in Boston. In addition to ending her new music drought, 2013 The Truth About Love tour dates mark the first time fans will be able to catch Pink on the road since her 2010 Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour.
Swedish House Mafia Tickets | 2013 One Last Tour: Feb. – March
As you can probably tell from the tour name itself, this will be the last hurrah for Swedish House Mafia, as the band announced that they will be heading their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013 One Last Tour dates. North American fans will have to wait until Feb. to catch a live show when the group returns from overseas for a roughly one-month-long trek beginning with a five-night stint at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. An assortment of venues will follow including the Rogers Centre, Bell Centre, Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, United Center, and Los Angeles State Historic Park. No word yet on whether more North American dates will be added so take advantage of the chance to see Swedish House Mafia with our great selection of seats in stock now.
2013 Super Bowl Tickets | Feb. 3, Superdome, New Orleans
OK, so this isn’t technically a tour, but it is one of the premier live events to welcome in the New Year. And, as a bonus, Beyonce’s performance will be sandwiched in between two of the most exciting halves of NFL football you’ll likely experience all year. Oh, and it also happens to be going down in New Orleans just days before the start of Mardi Gras. Head to the Vivid Seats marketplace and purchase your 2013 Super Bowl tickets for the action-packed showdown at the Superdome.
Rihanna Tickets | 2013 Diamonds World Tour: March – May
Rarely has Rihanna taken extended time off since bursting on to the music scene in the mid-2000s, and 2013 will be no different. On the heels of her latest album release, Unapologetic, the GRAMMY-award winning 24-year-old is now equipped with seven studio albums and will be taking the hits to a wide variety of North American cities when the 2013 Diamonds World Tour dates set sail on March 8 in Buffalo. From there, Rihanna will make her way through other East Coast venues such as TD Garden and the Wells Fargo Center before making the first of three stops in Canada. The majority of her U.S. dates will take place in major cities, including Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, and a host of others.
