With a new year comes new concerts. Whether one goes alone or with friends, these concerts within D.C., Maryland, and Virginia will be sure to put one in a good mood. While they vary in price and style, all concerts have the ability to unite music lovers.


Lana Del Rey, Indie pop/rock artist, is an American singer-songwriter. According to Songfacts, a site about music artists, Rey’s inspiration for songs is Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. Her breakthrough song, Video Games, skyrocketed her music career. After this, she released her album, Born to Die. Rey’s newest album, Lust For Life, is what she will be performing on her tour. Tickets are on sale now via her website or any verified online seller for $40 to $300 for January 25, at Capital One Arena.


G-EAZY starts off the year with his The Beautiful & Damned Tour on March 7. DAR Constitution Hall will be filled with great musicians like Trippie Redd, Phora, and Anthony Russo, along with G-EAZY himself. G-EAZY has risen to fame recently with songs like Me, Myself, and I, Good Life, and No Limit; and according to Rolling Stones, The Beautiful & Damned is his third studio album. Battlefield students looking to see him perform live should be ready to shell out between 70 and 200 dollars, depending on where the seats are.


Pop artist, Demi Lovato is combining talents with record producer and rap artist DJ Khaled. Their US tour is coming to D.C. at the Capital One Arena on March 24. Demi Lovato made her debut on the childhood show, Barney and Friends. Since then, she has risen in fame to become a Grammy-nominated artist with many hit songs like Sorry Not Sorry and Ruin the Friendship on her album, Tell Me You Love Me. Tickets are priced around 50 to 900 dollars, so getting a fair seat is not unimaginable.


Pop/country legend and all-around genius, Taylor Swift, will be playing in FedEx field on July 10. Her new album, Reputation, has been a global success, and if her previous concerts are any indication of her upcoming performances, fans will be in for quite a treat. Be prepared to sell several organs to afford tickets though. Unless one grabbed tickets during the presale, BHS students will have to scrounge up between 180 to 5,000 dollars. While 5,000 dollars is out of the average student’s budget, hoarding birthday and holiday money may be enough to snag a decent seat.


Sophomore Samantha Miller says that, “I went to the 1989 tour a while ago and it was really cool how she had the different lights and performance routines. It will be interesting to see how this changes now that the old Taylor Swift is dead.”

Niall Horan became a household name while he was a part of One Direction, a well-known boyband. Following the group’s split in 2016, he became a solo artist. His debut single, This Town, skyrocketed his solo career. According to Billboard, an entertainment magazine and website, Horan’s first solo album, Flicker, was number one on their 200 albums chart. He will be performing this album on his world tour. Catch him on Friday, August 31 at Jiffy Lube Live. Tickets can be found on their website or any other official ticket venue website. Tickets for this start off at $30 and go to $800.
