There are some big tours coming through Canada in 2024.

From new country festivals, to Punjabi superstars, to Billboard's Top Artist of 2023, there's no shortage of major shows coming to the country. Toronto's Rogers Centre and Vancouver's BC Place will host several stadium concerts this year, while festivals like Osheaga and Boots and Hearts are set to attract thousands of attendees outdoors. Toronto was recently named the most popular destination for world tours, and 2024 looks like it will live up to the reputation (even if Drake's tour with J. Cole is so far skipping his hometown).


Here are some of the biggest shows Canadians can look forward to this year:

Mitski at Massey Hall

Massey Hall was once a fitting venue for indie darling Mitski, but after a breakout 2023 amplified by the TikTok and Hot 100 success of "My Love Is Mine All Mine" this can now be considered a big underplay. Her three nights at the legendary Toronto concert hall are a big hot ticket in the city.

February 10-12 at Massey Hall in Toronto.

Noah Kahan: We'll All Be Here Forever World Tour

Noah Kahan's reinvention as a folk-rocker paid off in a big way in 2023, and now he's a major touring artist heading into the new year. Kahan broke through into the mainstream this year with his second record, Stick Season. Kahan has collaborated with a slew of top-tier artists, including Kacey Musgraves, Hozier and Post Malone. He's headlining Montreal's Osheaga with Green Day and SZA, which shows he's a top-tier artist in his own right, alongside his recent Grammy nod for Best New Artist. The Osheaga date comes after Kahan’s 2024 arena tour, which is not neglecting Canada. Unlike many big tours that stop in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver at most, this one also comes to Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, London, Ottawa and Quebec City.

Diljit Dosanjh: Diluminati Tour

Last year, Punjabi music superstar Diljit Dosanjh became the first musician to play an entirely Punjabi set at Coachella, and this year he's making history in Canada: on April 27, 2024, at Vancouver's BC Place, Dosanjh will play the largest ever Punjabi music show outside of India. The stadium performance indicates the rising popularity of Punjabi music, particularly in Canada, where Dosanjh's latest album Ghost peaked at No. 5 on the Canadian Albums chart last year.

April 27 at BC Place in Vancouver.

Coast City Country First Edition

This spring, Live Nation Canada is bringing a brand new stadium festival to Vancouver, titled Coast City Country. Canadian rockers Nickelback will headline alongside country stars Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley. More than a music festival, Live Nation is hoping that Coast City Country will become a country takeover of Vancouver, with guests coming in from all over for the experience and wearing their cowboy hats around town all weekend. With Coast City, Live Nation is betting big on country music. The festival takes place at BC Place stadium on April 19 and 20.

Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton open Great Canadian Casino Resort

Toronto's splashy new casino will come with a 5,000 capacity theatre, and it's got a nice pair of opening night shows. TV cohosts/married couple Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will open the new venue with concerts on consecutive nights. They're billed as separate shows, but there's plenty of duet possibility there. See if you can spot them at the tables in between.

Tate McRae: Think Later Tour & Calgary Stampede

Canada's newest pop star Tate McRae, named a Billboard Canada Breakthrough Artist of 2023, is taking her show on the road in 2024 for a global tour that will bring her from Ireland to Australia. The Think Later tour — named for her 2023 sophomore album — will stop in Toronto in July at the Budweiser Stage, and McRae will also head west that month to play the Cowboys Music Festival, which takes place during the Calgary Stampede. The show will be a Calgary homecoming for the L.A.-based artist — and after a whirlwind year including performances on Saturday Night Live and at the Billboard Music Awards, the singer could probably use some familiar sights.

July 5 at Cowboys Music Festival in Calgary.

The Rolling Stones: Hackney Diamonds Tour

With the release of their 24th album — and their first original album in nearly two decades — rock legends the Rolling Stones became the first act to have top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 in every decade since the '60s. Hackney Diamonds hit No. 3 on the albums chart and the Stones will be taking it out on a stadium tour this summer. The band have only announced 19 dates so far. Somewhat unusually, the only Canadian date is at Vancouver's BC Place. In the meantime, Hackney Diamonds is getting a deluxe version this month, which will include seven new live recordings — plenty to keep fans busy.

July 5 at BC Place in Vancouver.

Green Day: The Saviors Tour

Following up their fiery half-time performance at the Grey Cup last fall, the rock trio will be returning to Canada this summer for a performance at Toronto's Rogers Centre and as headliners at Montreal's Osheaga, Canada's largest music and arts festival. The band have a lot to celebrate on the Saviors Tour, from the release of their new album, The Saviors, to the 20th anniversary of their No. 1 album American Idiot, to the 30th anniversary of '90s classic Dookie. No word on whether the pyrotechnics will be out again for these gigs, but over thirty years on, the band certainly still knows how to put on a show.

Blink-182: One More Time Tour

Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker put out their first release as a trio in over a decade last fall, following guitarist and vocalist DeLonge's departure from the group between 2015 and 2022. Their reunion record, One More Time, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming their third album to do so, while singles "Edging" and "One More Time" topped the Rock & Alternative Airplay Chart. Fans are clearly happy that the iconic pop-punk group are playing together one more time — and Canadian fans will get the chance to see them live at the Rogers Centre this summer, with Pierce The Veil supporting on August 15.

Taylor Swift: Eras Tour

Swifties were worried when Taylor Swift's initial Eras Tour dates didn't feature any Canadian stops, but the global popstar — and Billboard's Top Artist of 2023 — put their worries at ease with the announcement of 2024 shows in both Toronto and Vancouver, at the Rogers Centre and BC Place respectively. The behemoth Eras Tour features songs from each of Swift's studio albums and has already grossed over a billion dollars worldwide, without even taking into account the Eras Tour concert moviethat hit theatres last fall. Canadian fans were dancing in the aisles at Eras Tour screenings in 2023, but in 2024 they'll get to sing along to the real deal.

November 14-16 and November 21-23 at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

December 6-8 at BC Place in Vancouver.
