When looking back on 2023, there's no doubt that it was one of the best years for shows, events, and concerts in Western New York. Some amazing concerts, events, and shows came through Western New York and Southern Ontario last year, leaving us with some fantastic memories. Just look over the shows that came around in 2023, we had the likes of Post Malone, KC & The Sunshine Band, Pitbull, Carlos Santana, Chubby Checker, Katt Williams, Nickleback, Jelly Roll, and countless others took a ride through the region.

The concert bar was raised in 2023, and so far in 2024, it's beaten. This year, we know that Drake is coming through the 716 to play two shows, along with Old Dominion at the Taste of Country, Keith Urban, Janet Jackson, and countless more.

But could there be even more great shows on the horizon for Western New York?
