HARD ROCK & METAL CONCERTS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...


Often, hard rock and metal concerts are the first that come to mind when someone thinks about concerts. This is partly because popular media portrays metal and rock concerts in countless coming-of-age stories, such as Detroit Rock City (1999) which features KISS, Almost Famous (2000) which features Stillwater, The Runaways (2010) which obviously features The Runaways, and Rock of Ages (2012) which features a fictional band. Keep reading to learn more about hard rock and metal and why these concerts are some of the best around...

Hard rock is an umbrella term in music, used to describe most music with a loud or dominant guitar presence. However, hard rock is like most genres, in that defining it can involve increasing nuance. It is often characterized by catchy, earworm guitar riffs, percussive stomping and pounding, anthemic choruses, and cool driving beats. Compared to a genre like punk, hard rock is more mainstream and commercial. Think of hard rock music as quintessential stadium music. These concerts are often associated with large, loud crowds, wild audiences, and unforgettable shows.

Although metal’s origins are difficult to pinpoint, many experts believe the genre became distinct when Black Sabbath came on the scene, creating a darker, looming sound. However, metal was first mentioned in the song “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf, recorded in 1968. In contrast to metal, hard rock often is known as high-energy, overdrive part music, filled with chords, hooks, jams, and melodies. Metal maintains a focus on the electric guitar and other more jarring instrumentals. Words that come to mind for listeners include powerful, intense, distorted, and aggressive. Comparatively, genres like the blues—which heavily shaped hard rock—are not part of metal. However, what metal lacks in foundation allows it to create a more diverse sound spanning larger number of topics. Common rock themes include love, partying, and sex, whereas metal themes venture into unorthodox and even taboo topics, including mythology, politics, violence, evil, the occult, and gore. Expect metal concerts to be even rougher around the edges.

Regardless of which genre you prefer, both hard rock and metal have made way for some of the most iconic concerts of all time. Hard rock covers performers such as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, The Who, Aerosmith, and Queen. Metal covers performers such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest. There are tons of overlap in between. For an intense, captivating, stadium-like experience, metal and hard rock concerts are some of the best available. Whether you are looking for an oldie but good group or seeking a new hard rock or metal group, there are plenty of shows to choose from online. Explore what is available to secure your tickets now.
