The biggest concerts to look forward to in June

Music Tuesday June 4, 2024 By: Harry Howes

With festival season just around the corner, music fans up and down the country are buying their tents and desperately praying it doesn’t rain. But if you fancy enjoying the world’s best artists without having to dig out your muddy wellies, we’ve got you covered.

There are plenty of exciting concerts to look forward to in June, including huge tours from the likes of Taylor Swift and Liam Gallgher. Luckily for you, we’ve put everything you need to know all here in one place.

Taylor Swift

You’ll no doubt have already heard about the Eras Tour but unless you’ve been living under a rock, American superstar Taylor Swift is currently taking her record-breaking show across the globe.

She is arguably the biggest artist on the planet right now and her sixth world tour is the first in history to make more than $1 billion. It’s the highest-grossing tour in history and for good reason – the three-and-a-half hour long show that includes more than 40 songs has been selling out arenas and stadiums worldwide.

It started more than a year ago and will finish in Canada later this year. And for her lucky UK-based fans, it’s hitting these shores throughout June. Swift will perform for three nights in each of Edinburgh and Liverpool before heading to Cardiff. She’ll then finish the month with three sell-out shows at Wembley before returning to London for more dates in August.

The show features four acts, each representing different stages of her career, and it’s been revamped this year to include tracks from her latest album The Tortured Poets Department. The Eras Tour has been accompanied by a feature film but if you’d rather see the show in person, why not join us in the best seats in the house?

Liam Gallagher

With this year marking the 30th anniversary of Oasis’ iconic debut album Definitely Maybe, fans had been crossing their fingers that the squabbling brothers might put their differences aside and finally reunite.

Sadly, that hasn’t happened. However, Liam Gallgher is offering the next best thing by putting on a Definitely Maybe tour, playing the best tracks from the record including ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’, ‘Live Forever’, ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol’.

The 51-year-old is doing 12 dates in June, including three in his home city of Manchester in the brand-new Co-op Live venue, as well as at the O2 in London. The tour kicked off in Sheffield earlier this week and Liam was reunited with Oasis guitarist Bonehead. He also sang Half the World Away for the first time ever, dedicating the track to brother Noel.

As well as his tour, Liam is one of the headliners for Reading and Leeds Festival later this summer alongside the likes of Blink-182, Lana Del Rey and Fred Again.

Capital Summertime Ball

One of the biggest days in the pop music calendar returns to Wembley this month. The Capital Summertime Ball is an annual tradition, giving fans a festival experience in a state-of-the-art venue.

This year, the stage will be graced by Raye, who has enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough year. The 26-year-old made history at this year’s BRIT awards, winning a record six gongs from her seven nominations.

Meanwhile, the Sugababes, Becky Hill, Ella Henderson, David Guetta, Perrie Edwards, Aitch and plenty of others will also be performing. The hospitality areas at Wembley offer a unique, luxury experience. Enquire today to book your place for the Summertime Ball on Sunday 16th June.

American Express presents BST Hyde Park

It wouldn’t be a summer of music without British Summer Time in Hyde Park. The legendary event has seen countless stars perform over the years, including Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and Take That.

This year, American superstar SZA will take to the stage on the same weekend that she’ll be performing at Glastonbury. Enjoy her biggest hits from the comfort of the hospitality areas on Saturday 29th June.

The following night, Sunday 30th June, sees Kings of Leon headline. They’ll be rocking out and wowing fans with classics including ‘Sex on Fire’ and ‘Use Somebody’, as well as tracks from their album Can We Please Have Fun, which came out earlier this year.

Later in the summer, Andrea Bocelli, Robbie Williams, Shania Twain, Stevie Nicks and Kylie Minogue will also perform at the event in Hyde Park.

Coldplay

Another band with huge world dates scheduled is Coldplay, who have been touring their latest album Music of the Spheres since last year. The four-piece have also left time in their schedule at the time of Glastonbury, so we may well see their names when the line-up is announced.

Coldplay are no strangers to the festival, having made the first of their six appearances in 1999. They’ve since headlined four times, taking to the Pyramid stage in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016.

Chris Martin and co. were also due to perform in 2021 before the festival was cancelled. Instead, they appeared on the festival livestream event, alongside George Ezra, Kano, Wolf Alice and Damon Albarn.

Hampton Court Palace Festival

The open-air concert action continues at one of the most historical venues in London. The Hampton Court Palace Festival returns with a series of nine gigs throughout June.

Among the headliners are Tom Jones, Nile Rodgers and Chic and Sheryl Crow, as well as Paloma Faith, Jessie J and Eurovision star Sam Ryder.

Tuesday 11th June – Tom Jones
Wednesday 12th June – Nile Rodgers and CHIC
Thursday 13th June – Jack Savoretti
Friday 14th June – Sam Ryder
Saturday 15th June – Bjorn Again
Sunday 16th June – The Rest Is History Live Presents: The Tudors

Thursday 20th June – Paloma Faith
Friday 21st June – Jessie J

Other concerts in June

There are plenty of other huge concerts taking place in June, including Foo Fighters, who will be performing at Emirates Old Trafford on 13th June. Meanwhile, P!INK will be heading to the capital for two consecutive gigs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 15th and 16th June.

Girls Aloud’s reunion tour heads to Birmingham on 18th June before the girl group do two nights on the trot at the O2. Meanwhile, Green Day have gigs in Manchester and at Wembley. Elsewhere, Pearl Jam will be heading to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium while fans of Gladys Knight can catch her at the Royal Albert Hall.
