The Best Gigs to Look Forward to in 2021

Diana Ross, Brian Wilson and Blondie are all scheduled to be heading to Manchester next year!

Like many, one of the things I’ve missed the most this year is the feeling of being submerged in a sweaty crowd dancing away and singing horrifically out of tune while one of my favourite artists lives out their childhood dreams on stage.

Most artists have now rescheduled their tours multiple times and there’s still a lot of uncertainty for the smaller venues so it will be best to keep up to date with those venues directly.

For now, I’ve picked a range of gigs that are still scheduled and tickets are available from Blondie to Arlo Parks.

Here are a handful of top picks for gigs in 2021…
