The Best Upcoming Pop Music Concerts & Tours 2017
2017 is nearly at an end, but there is no need to fear as there are still lots of pop bands on tour. There really is nothing like being part of a community of thousands, coming together to experience the power of pop music in the arena it was mean’t for, the stage.
While 2017 has seen the rise of more downbeat pop acts breaking through, that doesn’t mean they will put on a boring show. Just ask anyone who has seen Lorde live and they will tell you that a little moodiness goes a long way. Of course, if scathing satirical take-downs of modern pop aren’t your scene there’s always groups who celebrate the very essence of pop with every beat and every note.
With the summer festivals over its time for some of the world’s hottest artists to announce their next worldwide tours.
Groups like Little Mix, and up and coming singers like Zara Larsson, and Jess Glynne will provide gig-goes to different variations of the genre. Little Mix bask in the girl band attitude of old, but take it in new directions. Jess Glynne, who is still riding high off of the success of her debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, and killing it on the festival circuit, provides a smaller, more personal experience that is still easy to dance to.

With this many artist, and virtually limitless options your couch will probably deflate from neglect as there will be no reason to stay in until the mandated new year rest.
