10 Bands that SHOULD Absolutely Tour India in 2022


Twentieth century has brought a whole lot of new talents in rock genre. And India has been a hotspot for such amazing rock bands where they visited in the past but in recent days the youth have grown to know what rock music brings to them. There has been a huge increase in the amount of love and respect for such bands. And I personally would love these bands to perform live in India in 2022.

1. Coldplay

With a dozen of hit songs dropped Coldplay has proved to be one of the most followed and loved rock band in last few years. They are not much known for their heavy metal stuffs but because of the mere meaningful songs they’ve achieved a lot of appreciations in recent times. With their latest hit “Adventure of a lifetime” they prove their worth. And us Indians we’ve loved Coldplay from the very start. Their lead Chris Martin visited India recently for a small set at a delhi based club for a social cause towards the global poverty project and a it was at some random pub where he performed the three hits Paradise and Viva la vida. So coming to India for a huge concert now would definitely get us rocking and rolling.

2. AC/DC

AC/DC are an Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973. So called “Greatest Heavy Metal Band of All Time” by MTV In 2004. They have a whole lot of buzz going around everywhere they perform with their hard rock tracks driving the crowds crazy. Indians have been a huge admirers for the australian hard rock king. And with their decision to only stop when all of them no more exist can give us hope that they would surely visit us very soon.

3. Foo Fighters

With their latest album sonic highways and their international tours they grew into prominence in the category of alternative rock. With a huge fan base here in india i don’t think it would be a bad idea for “the holy shits” a.k.a “foo fighters” to visit india in the coming years. With their broken leg world tour in progress we can expect them to be here in india very soon.

4. Metallica

This american heavy metal band comes from the early 1980’s. With some of the most influential and heavy thrash metal albums Metallica got into the top four of the best thrash metal bands. They are the only band that has been followed by indians since their early stages of success. They toured india in 2011 and us indians would love to see them perform live again. And with their tenth studio album about to release they are set to have a tour named Metallica on request. And we request you to come to india and perform.

5. The Rolling Stones

Another british rock band with a lot of variety from Rock, blues rock, rock and roll, rhythm and blues, hard rock, pop, country rock and blues. At first the Rolling Stones were noted for their longish hair as much as their music, the band are identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. Indian youth grew up listening to the rolling stones and now is the time when they want to see them performing live once again. The rolling stones have last been to india in 2003. Following their tour in latin america in 2016 we can expect the rolling stones to roll down for us in India.

6. Linkin Park

Linkin Park an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California was formed in 1996. The band rose to international fame with their debut album Hybrid Theory which was loved all over the world but got special fame with indian people following the linkin park. That day was the day when people discovered linkin park as an upcoming sensation in rock. They haven’t came to india yet but we would love to see them perform for us. With their last hit album The Hunting Party they’ve came into prominence. Linkin park collaborated with steve aoki for their latest track Darker than blood.

7. Guns N’ Roses

A heavy metal and hard rock band coming from los angeles the US. Guns N’ Roses released their latest album Chinese Democracy, which is the most expensive rock album to ever be produced in music history. It debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. Guns N’ Roses has been known for reviving the mainstream popularity of rock music when mainstream music was dominated by dance music. Guns N’ Roses has been a long time favourite for people all over the world and a lot of indians being die hard lovers of their rock tracks. Guns N’ Roses last visited india in 2013 and we further expect to see them very soon.

8. Arctic Monkeys

Another british rock band making indie rock and psychedelic rock. They came to public attention through internet via fan-based sites promoting change in the way of emergence for new bands. Formed in 2002 this band bagged several awards for their tracks and gained attention in a very less period of time. They’ve never visited india but the amount of people following their music style has increased with the number of tracks they dropped. We can expect a small tour by the Arctic Monkeys to india in the coming years.

9. Aerosmith

Also known as the bad boys from boston Aerosmith was formed in the year 1970 and since the 70’s they’ve survived like the most rock bands from 70’s did. Aerosmith is the best selling american hard rock band of all time. Aerosmith have recent record hits loved among all of the youth. With hard rock and heavy metal tracks lined up since the days they emerged they have seen a whole lot of fan base for the Aerosmith in india. The last trip for Aerosmith to india was in 2008 so we hope to see you very soon.

10. Avenged Sevenfold

Known for their dramatic imagery on the album covers make them a differently known heavy metal band. With a change of drummer avenged sevenfold are busy with their seventh studio album which would release very soon. With no previous tours to india we would love to see the A7X perform live.
