Best Concerts in Nashville – 2017

Nashville, TN, United States / 93.3 Classic Hits

This year in Nashville has been incredible for concerts. With concerts happening every week here in Music City, the city itself has had some music legends play here from Tom Petty to Neil Diamond. Get a full list of the top concerts below!


Queen/Adam Lambert;

When Queen + Adam Lambert hit the stage at Bridgestone Arena, the crowd went wild. The band played many of the hits including “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Fat Bottomed Girls”. However, the songs weren’t the only stars of show but the visual effects themselves were HUGE with the crowd of Nashville. From a light show to multiple video boards and props, the entire show was big in Music City.

The 93.3 Classic Hits article from Chas Kelly states how the original members are still playing like its 1980: “But honoring Freddie in style and in voice wasn’t enough, as the two original members that are still rocking every night of the tour had their chance to shine as well.  Ripping guitar and drum solos from original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor were among the many highlights of the performance.”

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers:

Bridgestone Arena was loud as soon as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers walked up on stage. Impressing the entire town with all of the classic hits including ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’ and ‘Free Fallin’. The concert itself made every single person leaving the arena saying “Wow!”Although this was Tom Petty’s last concert inside of Nashville, he has certainly left a great mark in Music City.


Styx, REO Speedwagon & Don Felder:

There’s nothing better than singing along to “Can’t Stop This Feeling” with front man of REO Speedwagon himself, Kevin Cronin, on a Saturday Night. July 22nd was not only a perfect day to be at Ascend Amphitheater but also perfect to be outside listening to music legends; Don Felder, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder.

Don Felder opened up the show with the Eagles song “Already Gone” while continuing his set with other Eagles classics like “Take it Easy” and “Hotel California” which Styx guitarist and singer, Tommy Shaw joined Felder on stage for.

REO Speedwagon took the stage shortly after, playing fan favorites like “Take It on the Run” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling”, while also pulling out the hit song “Keep On Loving You” during their encore.

Styx kicked off the show with “Gone, Gone, Gone” which set the stage for the rest of the performance.  They capped off the rest of the night with greats like “Too Much Time On My Hands”, “Come Sail Away”, and the encore, “Renegade.”

With all the great hits from each band, they left Nashville wanting more!

Foreigner, Cheap Trick & Jason Bonham:

It was another weekend of great music in Music City.  Foreigner made sure of that at Ascend Amphitheater on Saturday night.

The Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling “jukebox heroes” made all the stops in their set to ensure that Nashville natives get exactly what they paid for.  Songs like “Feels Like the First Time”, “Urgent”, and “Juke Box Hero” got the crowd going before encore. The encore was “I Want to Know What Love Is”, and, of course, “Hot Blooded.”

Cheap Trick didn’t disappoint either. Rocking the stage with hits like “I Want You to Want Me”, “Surrender”, and “The Flame” caught the crowd’s attention early. Jason Bonham, son of Led Zepplin’s John Bonham, kicked things off in a big way with his exclusive “Led Zepplin Experience.
