Total fangirl moment: Ed Sheeran is the one on this list that I most want to see. When Ed performs, he has no back up band – it’s just him and his guitar, and boy, what he can do with it! His in-concert covers of various hip hop songs have now gone viral. Fans say Ed Sheeran is “the best concert I’ve ever been to”, and that even people who go in not knowing Ed’s music that well walk out huge fans.

My favorite band. I’ve seen them in concert several times now, and while Donald Fagen can’t hit the high notes like he used to, if you grew up with their music, seeing them live is a must. If you didn’t, download Aja and you’ll instantly get hooked.
The Internet’s favorite band.

Their last album, Kitsugi, (their first without the influence of their ‘secret weapon’ Chris Walla) got slammed by critics for its subpar “one-feel-fits-all” tracklist. Reviews of their live show, however, have said that the band still knows how to rock the house.

First of all, hats off to this Irishman for actually writing his own music and taking on an important social issue with his music, but is the singer-songwriter more than just ‘Take Me to Church’? Fans say that Hozier’s other songs are extremely accessible, even if you walk into a concert only knowing ‘Church’.
Pop music’s best new singer.

Called “the next Jay-Z” by some, J. Cole’s live flow is impeccable. Known for treating his fans like family, if 2014 Forest Hills Drive hit you like it hit us, seeing this word-smith live is a must.

Country superstar Tim McGraw is perfomring across the United States for his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour, and so far, fans have not been disappointed. Combining old songs with new tricks, the only disappointment seems to be that he leaves without an encore.
