You might have missed (or already seen) Elton John, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rod Stewart, Sting and Cyndi Lauper so far in 2023, but there are plenty of other nostalgia concert tours heading to Australia. Here’s our pick of the acts you can still catch live in concert this year that will appeal.
Red Hot Summer Tour
The Red Hot Summer Tour is an annual series of outdoor concerts across Australia. Feature acts in the current tour include Paul Kelly, Bernard Fanning, Missy Higgins, Mark Seymour, Ian Moss, Troy Cassar-Daley and Vika & Linda.
There’s something in that line-up that’s guaranteed to suit almost any taste, and each act performs all their biggest hits for 30 minutes to an hour or so.
Concerts still to come on the current tour include April dates in Port Macquarie, Toowoomba, Southport and Jacobs Well, as well as May dates in Darwin and Cairns. Why not get some friends together, take a blanket or a chair and make a day (and night) of it?

Irish siblings The Corrs will be touring Australia for the first time in 20 years in October and November, supported by Natalie Imbruglia and Toni Childs.
The eight-concert tour will see them perform in Perth, Bribie Island, Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide, Launceston and Melbourne. See more information about The Corrs touring dates and tickets.
Robbie Williams is bringing his XXV world tour to Australian shores in November. His headline-grabbing performance in the pre-game entertainment at last year’s AFL grand final proves that he’s still as good a live performer as ever.

If you do, you’ll see him performing number one hits like “Let Me Entertain You”, “Rock DJ”, “Kids” (better known as “Jump on Board”), and “Angels”.
What about some younger acts?
Of course, you don’t have to stick to nostalgia concerts. There are plenty of younger acts touring Australia this year with a fan base that spans across generations.
The ever-popular Ed Sheeran has just wrapped up his 2023 Australian tour, but you can still check out acts like Alt-J (touring in April/May), Lewis Capaldi (July), country musician Luke Combs (August) and Sam Smith (October/November).
