40 Best Concert Moments of 2017

 By CLTure (Updated)

December 21, 2017

2017 has been another incredible year in music. From sweaty music festivals, to arenas, to concert halls, we’ve seen a lot of shows this year. Spanning multiple genres and settings, we put together our favorite music moments of 2017.

The late soul singer Charles Bradley once said: “A real good artist learns to be a better person through all the changes they’ve been through. They keep their loving and honesty growing and learn to look at the world and not be full of hatred.” Music allows us to evolve as people and cope with things that change in our lives daily.

We’re proud to share some of the moments in 2017 that kept our appetites and love for music growing:
