    Christmas Concerts 2013 Give the Gift of Musical Variety This Season

    Christmas Concerts

    Even though the popular Jingle Ball tour gets the most coverage as far as holiday concerts go, there are dozens more seasonal shows that will be popping up across the country in the final weeks of 2013. Most of the concerts are hosted by local radio stations, so each city boasts its own unique collection of artists. The stacked lineups of these upcoming shows cover a wide variety of artists including the Backstreet Boys, Stone Temple Pilots, Fall Out Boy, and Kendrick Lamar.

    These annual Christmas concerts are most notable for being able to present several A-list artists on one stage for the price of just one ticket. On occasion, the headliners will even collaborate on stage, like what happened last year at one of the Los Angeles events. Watch the video below to see husband-wife duo and 2012 Almost Acoustic Christmas headliners Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale sing a duet of Bush’s “Glycerine.”


    Included below is a variety of country, hip-hop, pop, and rock artists that will be featured performers at the upcoming holiday shows that can be found in the Vivid Seats marketplace. To make the list easier to follow, we’ve divided the upcoming performances by region. Please be aware that the lineup for each concert is subject to change.
