2023 was a huge year for concerts. So many great tours took place this year and many of them came to Florida and the Tampa area. We’re reminiscing about the best country concerts of 2023.

Pollstar recently released the top-grossing tours of 2023. And it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour took the top-grossing spot. Taylor’s 60 stadiums tour set a record and is the first tour ever to cross the 10-digit threshold. Whether you’re a fan or not, that’s pretty impressive. Her 3 days in Tampa have brought a lot of economic good to the area with so many people visiting from other cities/states. The second top-grossing tour of 2023 is Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour. For the first time in 15 years, two women, including a woman of color, had the year’s top grosses. The third top-grossing tour of 2023 was Bruce Springsteen’s “Springsteen and E Street Band 2023 Tour, which stopped in Tampa on February 1st, 2023.

Concerts in Tampa in 2024

2024 is going to be a BIG year for concerts. So many big acts have already announced tours next year. We’re looking forward to Kenny Chesney at Raymond James Stadium in April and Morgan Wallen’s first stadium tour this summer. Tim McGraw and Kane Brown are coming to Amalie Arena next year and we still expect a lot more shows to be announced for the summer of 2024. Live Nation usually releases the lineup for the summer concert lawn pass early in the year and is normally packed with shows of all genres!
