On 15th October, Adele released her single 'Easy On me' from her fourth studio album '30', which was subsequently released on the 19th of November. 'Easy On Me' became Adele's third UK number 1 and, in the process, also broke Spotify and Amazon Music records for most streams for a song in a day.

Soon after, she announced a Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum, Caesar's Palace, which will span from January to April 2022. Adele also announced that she will be performing in July at Hyde Park, London. Tickets for the two nights in July sold out almost immediately.

Although no other announcements have been made, it has been five years since Adele last toured in the UK and with the release of her fourth studio album, we are positive that she will be releasing more live performance dates in the near future.

Adele is one of the biggest music stars on the planet, and therefore she would only perform on the biggest stages such as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, BT Murrayfield Stadium in Glasgow, and Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

Harry Styles

After an iconic set of six UK tour dates and countless viral moments, we predict that Harry will be returning to stages on home soil sooner than expected.

The star was forced to put off his tour twice due to the pandemic, and this combined with the excitement around his latest album release, 'Harry's House', increased demand even more for tickets to his shows.

With many fans pushing for more tour dates after missing out on access to Harry Styles' Love On Tour, we expect the Watermelon Sugar singer to introduce more tour dates soon.

Check out our blog on Harry's most recent tour and our predictions to find out more.

Arctic Monkeys

Sheffield-born rock band Arctic Monkeys have announced a string of festival appearances for 2022, along with a short run of Australian tour dates in 2023.

The dates will be Alex Turner, Matt Helders, Jamie Cook and Nick O'Malley's first live shows together since 2019. Their last performances took place at Lollapolooza and Estereo Picnic festivals in April that year.

In May 2022, drummer Matt Helders spoke about the music style of the band's forthcoming new album, saying that it "picks up where 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino' left off".

Although the 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' rockers haven't officially announced the follow-up to their 6th studio album, new music is expected to be released this year.

With a list of confirmed headline festival appearances, including Reading and Leeds Festival, we feel confident that an Arctic Monkeys tour announcement is imminent.

John Legend

One of the biggest stars of the 21st century, John Legend has cemented himself as a music icon. The 'All of Me' singer last toured the UK in 2017 and delighted fans when he announced a tour for 2020, however, the Covid-19 pandemic caused most dates to be postponed or cancelled.

In 2021, Legend announced a one-off live performance in the UK: 'John Legend's Somerset House Summer Series'. Up to now, this is the only date announced for him to perform in the UK, however, due to the disruption caused to his 2020 tour, we are confident that more dates will follow his concert next summer.

Spice Girls

Following the Spice Girls hugely successful reunion tour in 2019, rumours have begun circulating that they might be getting back together to grace stages once again in 2023.

According to reports, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, Melanie C and Mel B are rumoured to be finalising details of a new world tour and pushing for Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice to join them.

If the rumours are true, the iconic 90s girl band will be aiming to give their fans an even bigger and better tour than in 2019. It is likely that Baby, Sporty, Scary, Ginger and Posh will be performing at stadiums across the UK if a world tour is to go ahead.

Elton John

Elton John is currently performing his 'Final Tour', but we predict that the Rocket Man will announce another concert at a later date.

This musical legend has released 31 albums since he kicked off his career in 1969. A resident in the hall of fame, Elton is known for his iconic performances, style, and vocals.

We anticipate that Mr John will not wrap up his career of live performances as planned but will hit the stage one last time with the ultimate finale event to conclude his hugely successful life in music.
