Here are all the biggest concerts and tours coming to Australia in 2023

From massive stadium tours to intimate shows, here’s NME’s roundup of concerts set to hit Australian shores throughout 2023

In 2022, Australian music fans were treated to an especially busy concert and touring calendar. The gradual reopening of borders and return of live audiences brought with it a stacked list of touring musicians, many of whom returned Down Under for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether they were filling out stadiums for titans like Billie Eillish and Dua Lipa, or flocking to more intimate gigs at their nearest local, Australian crowds welcomed a stellar batch of touring artists with open – and likely flailing – arms.

Following this year’s lead, a slew of artists have likewise set their sights on Australia for 2023. Spanning international pop heavyweights like Ed Sheeran, Lil Nas X and Rina Sawayama, to bona fide rock royalty in the form of My Chemical Romance and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the slate of tours for Australia in 2023 has something for everyone. With that in mind, NME has compiled a roundup of the biggest tours, concerts and gigs set to hit Australian shores throughout 2023.
