Upcoming Concerts on Long Island and NYC


Samantha Kashata, Contributing Writer

Ever since the pandemic began in March 2020, concerts have no longer been available. Many concerts were cancelled or postponed but slowly as everything started to become available again, concerts have made a comeback. Several artists are coming back to your local stadiums and arenas to perform again. It’s a big relief for those artists to be able to do what they enjoy, and for those who enjoy going to see concerts. Although we can go see concerts in person again, most arenas have COVID safety restrictions now. If you are looking forward to going to see a concert, Compass News has compiled a list of many upcoming events that will be near you.

1.) Harry Styles – “Love on Tour”

Nov. 28, UBS Arena – Belmont Park, Long Island NY
Grab your tickets now, because this is a very popular concert. UBS Arena is having its grand opening Nov. 20 and Harry Styles will be the first artist performing there. The tour name “Love on Tour” is exactly how the show will be. Harry Styles and his live band will bring a very positive and upbeat performance to Long Island, so this is not one to miss.

2.) Luke Combs – “What You See Is What You Get” Tour
Nov. 29 and Nov. 30, Madison Square Garden – New York, NY
Looking for a fun evening with your family listening to country music by the one and only, Luke Combs? Two nights at Madison Square Garden, with openers Ashley McBryde and Ray Fulcher sound like an entertaining night to us. If you are interested, there is still time to grab your tickets.

3.) The Strokes – ‘The Strokes”
Dec. 31, Barclays Center – Brooklyn, NY
If you’re looking for a night full of alternative/indie music, this is the type of concert for you. The Strokes formed in New York, so this is like territory for the band. There is still time to buy tickets for the show, so if you want a night out with your friends then go buy some tickets and enjoy the concert.

4.) Playboi Carti – “Narcissist Tour”
Dec. 17, Barclays Center – Brooklyn, NY
This is another popular show, Playboi Carti is a rapper – he experiments with his music and a lot of his fans enjoy his style of music. He gives a very exciting and active performance with jumping, dancing and mosh pits. So, if this sounds interesting to you, go buy your tickets! I suggest bringing comfortable shoes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty since there is a lot of people and wear a mask if needed!

5.) Imagine Dragons – “Mercury Tour”
Feb. 14, 2022, UBS Arena – Belmont Park, Long Island NY
Last but not least, there is Imagine Dragons on their “Mercury Tour”. This one is a few months away so if you’re thinking about going to this event, you’ll have time to buy your tickets. With live music, Imagine Dragons will bring yet another performance to UBS Arena and there’s no doubt that they’ll do a great one, so don’t miss out.
