The 53 greatest classic rock tours in 2022: concerts, dates, ticket info

In 1965, Roger Daltrey of The Who sang, “People tryna put us down (talk about my generation) / Just ’cause we move around (talk about my generation).”

And 57 years later, the Who generation is “still on the move”.

More than 50 major artists from the classic rock genre are touring in 2022, including Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton and many more who topped this chart in the 60s and 70s.

There are so many big stars touring that we’ve struggled to narrow the list down to just 50, so here are our 53(!) biggest classic rock bands back on the road in 2022.

We’ve also listed a few websites where you can find tickets, along with the schedule for this tour.
