All the Co-Headlining Tours Heading Your Way this Year

Two is definitely better than one—just ask these artists. Fans will get their double dose of talent in 2018 when this batch of entertainers share the spotlight on their highly-anticipated co-headlining concert tours. 

Demi Lovato & DJ Khaled

The “Sorry Not Sorry” songstress and “I’m the One” producer are gearing up for the launch of their Demi X Khaled North American tour which kicks off February 26 in San Diego. They crossed musical paths shortly before officially announcing their joint tour when Lovato joined Khaled onstage at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas. It was  a wildly fun time then, and will be an even better time now. Browse tickets here.

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

A co-headlining tour from country music’s reigning power couple doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise, but still gets fans excited nevertheless. The husband and wife duo’s third co-headlining trek, the Soul 2 Soul World Tour, sold out arenas around the country when it launched last spring, causing McGraw and Hill to add more dates this year by popular demand. They’ll play over two dozen shows beginning May 31 with a set list presumably full of songs from their first-ever joint album The Rest of Our Life. Tickets available here.

Kesha & Macklemore

Kesha and Macklemore teamed up for the track “Good Old Days” from the rapper’s latest album Gemini, and must have enjoyed working with each other because they’re joining forces on their upcoming The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour this summer. They’ll share the stage in 30 cities across North America, including Nashville, Austin, Atlanta, and Toronto. Tickets available here.

Rod Stewart & Cyndi Lauper

The rocker-turned-crooner toured with Lauper last year for a successful summer of shows, and the two are back to do it all again. Following Stewart’s solo tour across Canada this winter and return to his Las Vegas residency later this spring, he’ll join Lauper for a stretch of 22 shows running from June through September. Find tickets here.

James Taylor & Bonnie Raitt

Like Stewart & Lauper, longtime friends James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt are continuing a tradition begun last summer and dishing out more joint shows beginning in May. They’ll play arenas in Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, and Los Angeles among other cities. The tour will coincide with Taylor’s scheduled gigs alongside The Eagles. Browse tickets here.

Miranda Lambert & Little Big Town

Two of the biggest names in country music are joining forces. Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town will come together for The Bandwagon Tour, which gets underway in July. The two Grammy-winning acts are also embarking on solo tours this spring before jumping on The Bandwagon Tour. Shows are sure to be sell-outs, so grab tickets here.

Steely Dan & The Doobie Brothers

Even after founder Walter Becker’s September 2017 death, Steely Dan is carrying on with performances across America. There’s strength in numbers, however, as they’ve recruited the Doobie Brothers to join them for massive co-headlining tour that will travel to 37 cities this spring. Cities on the itinerary include Kansas City, Raleigh, Seattle, Denver, and Tampa. Get your tickets here.

Def Leppard & Journey

Def Leppard and Journey announce major joint tour

80s glam rockers Def Leppard have recruited Journey to join them on a massive North American tour. The two iconic bands teamed up on the road in 2006 and are uniting again for a 58-date excursion. They’re slated to perform at historic venues like Fenway Park, Madison Square Garden, Wrigley Field and Busch Stadium. Tickets available here.

Chicago & REO Speedwagon

Iconic rock bands Chicago and REO Speedwagon have teamed up once again (they previously toured together in 2014), for a 34-date tour. They’ll kick off the trek June 13 and travel across North America for two months before wrapping the tour in mid-August. Cities on the itinerary include Cincinnati, Toronto, Charlotte, Nashville, and Austin. Find tickets here.

Lady Antebellum & Darius Rucker

Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker - Summer Plays On Tour

Like so many others on this list, Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker are no strangers to working together. Rucker opened for the trio on tour in 2011, and Lady A provided backing vocals on his 2013 hit “Wagon Wheel.” They’ll reunite once more on their Summer Plays On tour. 30 cities are on the itinerary when the tour kicks off in mid-July.
