As the weather gets better in the 716, we're seeing more proof that 2024 is set to go down as one of the years we've had for concerts in the best concert seasons we've seen in Western New York in a very long time. The number of great shows, events, and concerts that have happened and are being announced throughout the region is truly nice to see. There are things scheduled all over the Buffalo area, from Southern Ontario to the Greater Rochester area and everything in between.

So far this year, we've seen the Rick James Musical at Shea's, Drake & J Cole do back-to-back shows at the KeyBank Center, Ice Cube in St. Catherines, and Sexyy Red at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester. On the way, we still have Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie & Earth, Wind, and Fire, Fat Joe, Xscape & SWV, and countless other shows on the agenda.
