Summer is all about kicking back, relaxing, and soaking up the beautiful weather. It's also concert season. From music festivals to popular tours, major cities around the country host concerts, and everyone wants to get their hands on tickets to attend. Here are some shows you've got to see this summer:

Ed Sheeran

After being out of the public following his Multiply album, Ed Sheeran released new music at the start of the new year. New music meant a new album and a tour. It wasn't long until Ed got back on the road to tour his new album Divide, which came out weeks before he started touring. He will start the U.S. portion of the tour in late June so get your hands on tickets to enjoy his voice and amazing guitar skills in songs like "Shape of You".

 

Chicago's Lollapalooza 

One of the most popular festivals of the summer happens in Chicago. On August 3-6, various artists will be playing in the Windy City's beautiful Grant Park. The All-Star line up includes Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Vance Joy, and Blink 182. You can buy a ticket for your favorite day or a 4 day pass if you can't get enough of Chicago and good music.

After breaking records and becoming the first artist to win Grammys from a streaming-only album, Chance the Rapper celebrates his success on a tour this summer. He is also set to play a few festivals. Chance starts his tour at the end of April.

 

Lady Gaga
