This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Gettysburg chapter.

We warned you last semester, but it’s happened again. You’ve missed another concert. And this time, you missed a concert from one of your favorite artists. I’ve been there, and it’s a pretty sad feeling knowing that you missed out on a potential once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

College is all about making memories with your friends and going to concerts is one of the best ways to do that. I know that I remember every concert I’ve been to, whether it’s a longtime favorite musician of mine, or someone I’ve never heard of. With that said, even if you’re not the biggest fan of these artists, I highly recommend getting some friends together to see them live!

greta van fleet – Starcatcher world tour

You either want to see Greta Van Fleet live, or you’re a liar. I’ll admit, I’m a fake fan and only know their popular songs– like “Light My Love” and “Heat Above”– from TikTok. But I have a feeling that if I went to this tour, I would walk away as a huge fan. Even thinking about hearing Josh Kiszka’s vocals live gives me chills. If you’re into rock music and love a powerhouse performance, this show is for you.

You can see Greta Van Fleet at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C., which is about two hours away from campus. The show is on September 11, and you can find tickets here.

Queen + Adam Lambert – The Rhapsody tour

This show is a no brainer. How many more opportunities will you have to see Queen live? This may be one of their last tours with Adam Lambert, and I’ve heard that he puts on quite the show. I’m sure you’ll be amazed by his talent and stage presence. This is also the start of the tour, so you’ll be one of the first to see the new and improved Rhapsody Tour.

You can see this legendary performance in the CFG Bank Arena in Baltimore, MD, which is one hour away from campus. You have not one, but two opportunities to see Queen, as they will be performing on October 4 and 5. You can purchase tickets here.

playboi carti – antagonist tour

If rock music isn’t your thing, you may be excited to hear that Playboi Carti is coming to town. I’m not a huge listener, but I know that he has some “Popular” songs (get it?). This show will no doubt get you moving and make you ready to get back to campus so you can hit the frats. The next morning (but let’s be real, it’ll probably be afternoon), you can wake up and post about the concert, making everyone on campus jealous.

You can see Playboi Carti at the Capital One Arena on October 9. Get your tickets here!

enrique iglesias, pitbull, & Ricky Martin – The trilogy tour

I SO wish I could go to this show, because I owe my entire life to Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull. Those two men are constantly playing in my AirPods. Again, I feel that this show is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t pass up if you’re available. I could sit here and name all of their popular songs, but just go to any frat and you’ll be sure to hear some Pitbull. I even dressed up as Pitbull in sophomore year of college for Chi O Night Live (AOII should have won, sorry not sorry).

You can see this legendary line up at Capital One Arena on October 14. Buy tickets here, and please send me videos.

doja cat – The scarlet tour

Finally, the amazing Doja Cat is coming to D.C. Now, I know she’s kind of cancelled right now but hey… if you’re a Doja fan, you’re a Doja fan. Her lack of respect for you may not stop you from shouting the words to Rules when we all inevitably end up at her show. After seeing the Barbie movie this summer, I think it’s only natural to want to see another show for the girls.

See Doja Cat in Capital One Arena on November 27 if you’re in the area, and send me videos! Buy tickets here.

I hope that this article saved you from FOMO and that you attend one of these shows! If you end up going, make sure to send us a video. And if you post, tag @hercampusgettysburg so we can live through you!
