10 Running Songs from the Hottest Tours This Summer

Everybody is hitting the road during the next few months, whether on a tour bus or to log a few miles of training by foot.

Nothing says summertime like outdoor concerts. Live acts hit the road to favorite venues—the weather and the music create nostalgia. So, we’ve compiled a running playlist that surveys this summer’s tours.

Many of the most anticipated shows are from solo female acts—like Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, and Cardi B. Elsewhere you’ll find duos touring together—like Beck with Cage the Elephant, Luke Bryan with Cole Swindell, and The Black Keys with Modest Mouse. Finally, you’ve got the extravaganzas—like Heart’s reunion tour (featuring a rotating cast of openers including Joan Jett, Sheryl Crow, and Brandi Carlile) or the New Kids on the Block Mixtape Tour (which lives up to its name with sets from Salt-n-Pepa, Naughty by Nature, Tiffany, and Debbie Gibson).

So, while you’re hitting the road for a run, the acts below are hitting the road for a tour. And, with a little luck—and a little planning—perhaps your paths will cross. Here are our picks, if you’re looking for ideas on either front.
