The 53 biggest classic rock tours of 2022: concerts, dates, and ticket information

In 1965, Roger Daltrey of The Who sang, “People are trying to put us down (talking about my generation) / Just because we’re walking around (talking about my generation).”

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

More than 50 major works in the classic rock genre are on tour in 2022, including Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, and others who dominated those charts in the 1960s and 1970s.

There are so many mega stars on the tour that we had trouble narrowing the list down to just 50, so here’s the 53 biggest (!) of rock classics back on the road in 2022.

We’ve also listed some websites where you can find tickets, as well as a calendar for that tour.
