10 Music Tours To Look Forward To in 2021

With vaccination rollouts slowly beginning in several parts of the world, the music industry is also taking baby steps back into normalcy. Music festivals have announced new dates for 2021, album releases are dropping on time and, most excitingly, several artists are plotting new or rescheduled tour dates for the second half of the year.

Acts like Tame Impala and Thundercat have planned several dates to support their albums that came out in early 2020, while J. Cole, Jack Harlow, Benny The Butcher, Rod Wave, Lil Durk and Lil Baby are set to hit the road for projects that dropped between late last year and early 2021. We also have Trippie Redd who is prepping to release his new album, plus the likes of Wu-Tang Clan staples GZA, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah who are getting together for a joint tour and Björk who will be performing several unplugged sets.

As we all look forward to the return of live music, HYPEBEAST has rounded up a list of tours to catch later this year.

Tame Impala – Phase 1 Rushium Trials

Tame Impala is hitting the road for The Slow Rush with the Phase 1 Rushium Trials tour. Billed as a mock pharmaceutical product called “Rushium,” the tour is set to kick off on September 4 in Tennessee for Bonnaroo, and will see Kevin Parker and company stop by the likes of Chicago, Washington D.C. and Atlanta before finishing it off in Dallas Texas. Fans can also catch Tame Impala live at several festivals, including Life Is Beautiful and Outside Lands. Tickets are available on the official Tame Impala website.
