6 Concerts to Look Forward to this Year

Music plays a big role in each of our lives; evoking certain feelings in us, taking us back to a specific memory, helping us concentrate or setting the mood for a good time. With our generation’s need for earphones and the latest remixes, music is an essential part of our day and without it our lives would feel bare and incomplete. But there’s nothing better than jamming out to your favorite artists live. Here are 6 concerts to look forward to in 2014:
