2023 was an iconic year for concerts. So many great tours took place this year and many of them came to Florida and the Tampa area. We’re reminiscing about the best concerts of 2023.

Pollstar recently released the top-grossing tours of 2023. And it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour took the top-grossing spot. Taylor’s 60 stadiums tour set a record and is the first tour ever to cross the 10-digit threshold. Whether you’re a fan or not, that’s pretty impressive. Her 3 days in Tampa brought a lot of economic good to the area with so many people visiting from other cities/states. The second top-grossing tour of 2023 is Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour. For the first time in 15 years, two women, including a woman of color, had the year’s top grosses. The third top-grossing tour of 2023 was Bruce Springsteen’s “Springsteen and E Street Band 2023 Tour, which made a stop in Tampa on February 1st, 2023.

There were some great tours that we would love to include on our list but didn’t get a chance to check out. Drake looked like he put on an awesome show, but only came to Miami this year. Thankfully, he’ll be at Amalie Arena for TWO nights in 2024 with J.Cole!

Concerts in Tampa in 2024

2024 is going to be a BIG year for concerts. As we said, we are already looking forward to TWO nights of Drake and J.Cole. We can also look forward to some more shows being announced early in the year for summer. Live Nation usually released the lineup for the summer concert lawn pass early in the year. If you can make the drive, Nicki Minaj is finally back on tour and playing at Amway Center in March. Click here to learn more.

Honorary mentions

It was tough to narrow down our top 5 favorite tours when so many awesome acts came to Tampa this year. Ludacris recently put on an awesome show in St. Pete. 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes had a lit show at the Amphitheatre that took us BACK to our earlier roots. Lil Baby also brought his IOU Tour to Amalie and it was vibe.

Here are our top 5 favorite concerts of 2023… What are yours?

  • Beyoncé

    Obviously our top pick for the best concert of 2023 is the Renaissance Tour. There’s a reason why Beyoncé is the GOAT. We were reminiscing long after the concert was over and contemplated draining our bank accounts to see the Miami show too.

  • Post Malone

    Post Malone put on such a fun show and we hope he has a second leg of his tour in 2024! Our favorite moment of this show was when he gave away his guitar to a young fan in the crowd! Check out our photos from the show here.

  • Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa

    Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa had one of the most LIT shows in 2023. It was very fitting to be hosting some hip-hop icons on the weekend of the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop. There were a lot of generations of hip-hop fans showing out in Tampa.
