HIP-HOP & RAP CONCERTS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...


According to Nielsen’s most recent annual music report, hip-hop is now the most popular genre of music in the United States, surpassing rock for the first time ever. A majority of the top ten artists are in the hop-hop and R&B genres, and streaming of those genres has increased 72%. As rap and hip-hop are more accessible, diverse and widely loved than ever before, tickets to these concerts sell out quickly. For more information on the history of these genres and the concert landscape today, keep reading...

It is true that there is some debate about the origins of rap and hip-hop, but many agree that it can be traced back to New York disc-jockeys (DJs) in the late 70s. DJs would sample the most catchy, danceable parts of records, picking up on rhythmic bits from jazz and funk genres. Other influences were as widespread a reggae, international electronic music, and spoken word poetry. With this experimentation, a whole subculture developed, making way to break dancing, rhyming, styling, beatboxing and MC-ing that became the foundation for the rap and hip-hop that people know today. Many of these early tunes did not find mainstream commercial success, but they were created with a sense of community and an eye towards social justice. Although rap and hip-hop as genres have explored darker controversies since their inception, this past still influences the best rap and hip-hop being created today.

When it comes to rap and hip-hop concerts, they are no longer as associated with small, informal, makeshift venues, such as community centers, basements, and yards. Instead, popular artists in these genres fill stadiums. Think of Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Ariana Grande, Migos, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Kodak Black and Donald Glover. These highly-coveted, high-energy shows often feature dances, light displays, and sound effects to accompany the music itself. Even though these more popular shows attract tons of attention, there is still an undercurrent of more independent and experimental artistry in rap and hip-hop who release extended plays and perform in their local scenes, often associated with collectives and other community organizations. Look into musicians such as Curren$y, Tyler The Creator, Skyzoo, Run the Jewels, Oddisee Murs, Fetty Wap and Macklemore. These artists take performance seriously, but they have been able to take more liberties with their music as independent opportunities in the industry—especially with the growth of streaming services—increases.

Whether mainstream or independent manifestations of rap and hip-hop are more suited to your tastes, these genres are growing in popularity. To secure a spot when your favorite artists play near you, purchase your tickets now.
