There's nothing like being at the venue and watching your favorite rock band or pop star perform on stage in front of thousands of adoring fans.

You can also continue reading and learn which concerts we think are the best of the best.
Pop & Rock
By far the most popular genres of live music are pop and rock. And why not with great live acts like Rush, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Phish, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Kid Rock, and either on tour or about to launch one. These artists put on the best live concerts in the industry and many—like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, and Elton John—have been electrifying rock music fans for years. And your favorite idols will be touring with the American Idol tour. Rock tours and pop music tours are the biggest live events the music industry has to offer and the best place to get tickets to these shows is Clickit Ticket.
Born in the 1980's, and then rising to prominence in the following decade, alternative rock was popularized by artists who fused punk rock and post-punk with new wave. Alternative bands like Nickelback, The Black Keys, Goo Goo Dolls, 311, Foo Fighters, and Florence and the Machine are hitting the road to carry on their genre's mantle of innovation and creativity. Other great alternative groups that we highly recommend you see in concert is Zac Brown Band, Incubus, and Radiohead.
Stand-up comics are always funnier when you're watching them in a crowd. Why? Laughter is contagious. If you're looking for a laugh, and who isn't, we have plenty of concert tickets to the funniest standup comics currently combating hecklers. We have tickets to funny people like Chelsea Handler, Daniel Tosh, Kevin Hart, Lisa Lampenelli, Lewis Black, Jerry Seinfeld and Jeff Dunham. Of course no discussion of comedy is complete without mentioning Kathy Griffin and Brian Regan, two of the funniest stand-ups around. Now that that's out of the way, have you heard the one about the two dogs that walk into a bar?
Country & Folk
Country music concerts are some of the most enjoyable live shows you'll ever attend. Better yet, they're family-friends events that attract music fans from just about every walk of life. To experience the best live country music this side of the Grand Ole Opry, get yourself some Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley , Tim McGraw, Sugarland, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, George Strait, and Kenny Chesney. To see great folk music in concert we recommend renowned singer-songwriters like James Taylor, and Arlo Guthrie.
Feel like some head banging? Then grab your favorite black t-shirt and get yourself some Metallica tickets or some Def Leppard tickets. Nothing is more righteous than rocking out with thousands of other metalheads as some killer guitarist shreds it on stage. Here are some upcoming hard rock and heavy metal concerts that will definitely make throw up the "devil horns" hand gesture and stick out your tongue like Gene Simmons: Rammstein, Hinder, Accept, Iron Maiden, Sepultura, Megadeth, and System of a Down.
Perhaps no two musical genres epitomize America more than jazz and the blues. Despite their historical significance, don't think these genres have retired to a museum. Even in the 21st century, jazz and blues musicians put on some of the best live concerts around. There are several great jazz and blues tours either underway or about to get underway. They are all good but we think you'll especially enjoy: Amos Lee, Il Divo, Buddy Guy, Harry Connick, Jr. and Bela Fleck. You dig?
Once a novelty, the rap and hip hop genres are now two of the most popular and influential music genres in America. Rap concerts and hip hop concerts are attended by tens of thousands of fans and are routinely sold out. To be part of today's most energetic and vibrant music scene we recommend you buy rap and hip hop tickets for Beyonce, Jay-Z & Kanye West Tickets, Snoop Dogg, and Lil Wayne.
R&B & Soul
"Smooth," "sexy," and "silky" are three adjectives that perfectly describe the genres of R&B and soul. These cool brands of music are routinely responsible for some of the music businesses' most spirited and spiritual live concerts. And a person who fits the R&B bill perfectly is singer Alicia Keys, who is touring this year.
