When you look back at the 2023 concert season in Western New York and Southern Ontario, it's hard to imagine that 2024 could be better. But, as you can tell, 2024 is turning out to be the best year for shows, events, and concerts we've seen in decades.

All sorts of great shows have already come through the region. Stars like Diana Ross, Ice Cube, Drake & J. Cole, and several others have already come to town to keep the masses entertained.

Starting the year so great would make you think it would be enough, but we're far from that. There are countless concerts on the way to Western New York and Southern Ontario that you have to put on your to-do list, with several more coming yet to be announced.

You may need help deciding who to see and where to see them. If that is the case, then you are at the right place because here are a few shows that we think you should pay extra attention to this summer.

One thing to keep in mind is that more shows are announced just about every week, so this list may have to be adjusted depending on who's coming to Buffalo next.
