3. Who's on Tour?
Looking to make some memories? There’s nothing like experiencing a live performance by one of the biggest stars in the world with thousands of other people. When musicians sell out arena tours it means they’ve reached a level in their career that the entire world cares about. There are some incredible musicians touring the world right now. These are the ones that people will remember. When you see a teenager two decades from now wearing the very same tee shirt you bought at the show—it’s become vintage by then—you’ll look back and be able to say, “I was there.”
The summer is coming to an end but the concerts are just beginning. The second half of the summer will be filled with unforgettable performances from the likes of big brother HOV, Toronto superstar The Weeknd, and more.
