The list of Buffalo concerts, events, and shows heading to Western New York and Southern Ontario is continuing to grow, and if you haven't filled your summer to-do list, you have quite a few options this year.

So far this year, we've seen great shows from Drake, Joe & Tamia, and Stokley (as Rick James), with several more amazing shows on the agenda. Not only are the Queens of R&B coming, but we can expect to see Janet Jackson, Diana Ross, Flo Rida, Ice Cube, and more. There now is another show that you need to get ready for, as another hip-hop legend is on his way to Buffalo.

Fat Joe is scheduled to appear in Buffalo on August 3, 2024, at the inaugural Buffalo Herd Festival, and he's sure to take downtown Buffalo by storm.
