Party in the UK - What World Tours Are Happening in the UK in 2023?

Posted 18 Oct 2022

Say what you want for the UK, but we’ve got no shortage of homegrown musical talent selling out arenas the length and breadth of the country. People are snapping up tickets for Coldplay in Manchester, Elton John in London and Harry Styles at Wembley, but we’re not settling for UK bands in UK venues.

We want to see the very best in the world come to our shores, and 2023 looks to be a bumper year for anyone who wants to pick up concert tickets for the world’s biggest and best acts.

So let’s see who’s touring the UK next year.

Taylor Swift (Maybe)

Taylor Swift hasn’t toured the UK since before the pandemic, but the singer has posted a few hints on her social media that maybe, just maybe, a world tour is in the works. Any European leg would surely include gigs in London, Glasgow and Birmingham, so keep your ears open. As soon as Taylor Swift tickets appear, we’ll let you know.

Justin Bieber (February - March)

One of the world’s biggest pop stars, Justin Bieber has packed out arenas in every corner of the globe. And he’s kicking off a huge 2023 with the UK leg of his world tour. Starting in Glasgow on February 8, Beliebers can also catch their idol in Manchester, Sheffield, London and Aberdeen. Demand is sure to be high, so make sure you get your Justin Bieber tickets sooner rather than later.

Celine Dion (March - April)


It’s hard to believe, but Celine Dion has been one of the world’s biggest acts for well over 30 years, and she’s still drawing huge crowds. Her 2020 world tour was cancelled due to Covid, but it’s now been rescheduled for 2023. Her UK dates begin with two nights in Birmingham in March, before heading to Glasgow, Manchester, and finally London’s O2 arena in April. As you’d expect, Celine Dion tickets are in huge demand, so make sure you don’t miss out.

KPOP.FLEX (September)


KPOP is huge, with fans all over Europe desperate to see bands such as BTS, BLACKPINK and EXO. But it’s a long way from Shoreditch to Seoul, so KPOP fans are always on the lookout for their South Korean favourites appearing in Europe. This year, they’ll be spoiled for choice as the KPOP.FLEX festival is coming to London. Acts are yet to be confirmed but for three days at the 02 Arena, fans can see a selection of Korean megastars, and enjoy fan-exclusive activities and content. 2022’s event in Frankfurt saw appearances from ENHYPHEN, EXO’s Kai, and Monsta X, so make sure you grab your KPOP.FLEX tickets as soon as they go on sale.

And More to Come

New tours and dates are being announced day by day, and we still don’t know which pop, rock and hip-hop stars will be playing in the UK next autumn and winter. But one thing’s for certain - there will be many more amazing gigs to attend, and you’ll find tickets to every single event right here.
