If there's one thing that brings our staff together it's that we all love going to shows. Sure, the bands we watch may vary (a lot), but we all appreciate the feeling of watching live music. And 2017 was a stellar year for shows.

Here are the AP staff's 19 favorite tours of 2017. 

Moose Blood/Trophy Eyes/Boston Manor/A Will Away

The year's best tour came early when Moose Blood brought Trophy Eyes, Boston Manor and A Will Away along for a taste testing of America's greatest cities. The internationally renowned group of musicians busted ass and sold out venues, while solidifying their positions on the upper echelons of today's most important music. Griffin Elliot

Panic! At The Disco/MisterWives/Saint Motel—Death Of A Bachelor Tour

Panic! At The Disco’s Death Of A Bachelor tour was built for indie pop lovers. Brendon Urie and co. took out rising acts Saint Motel and MisterWives to create a sunshiney evening, featuring bop after bop. There’s no denying that Panic! At The Disco’s DOAB exudes the pop-laden energy that came to life in the band’s unmatchable stage production, and with two powerhouse acts on the road as well, there’s no way you didn’t dance along all night long. Maggie Dickman

The Young Renegades Tour

All Time Low nailed this summer tour by bringing along SWMRS, Waterparks, Night Riots and the Wrecks for a killer overall lineup. As if it couldn’t get any better, ATL’s set featured tracks from their latest Last Young Renegade to 2007’s So Wrong, It’s Right, paying tribute to their debut record and fans in the process. Rachel Campbell

The Stage World Tour/Avenged Sevenfold

A7X are currently on the biggest tour of their lives. The theme of outer space is fully explored in the production with slabs of screens exuding rich graphics mainly in purples and blues, a bold cube taking center stage and a giant astronaut even makes an appearance. Jaw-dropping theatrical magnificence. Chelsea Smile

Creeper/Milk Teeth/Energy/Puppy (UK)

This tour saw Creeper bringing the theatrics and Milk Teeth supplying the grunge-punk bangers. Plus, Energy were hitting the UK for the first time and Puppy proved themselves to be one of the best new bands in Britain. These shows were a lovely time. Jake Richardson

Green Day/Catfish And The Bottlemen – Revolution Radio Tour

After releasing Revolution Radio late last year, Green Day embarked on massive tours supporting the record this year, rightfully regaining their throne as one of the best live acts on the entire planet. Billie Joe Armstrong and Co. entertained crowds of thousands for nearly three hours each night, performing a set of nostalgia and new material. Supporting British rockers Catfish And The Bottlemen—who seem to be rounding out a hugely successful cycle for their sophomore album, The Ride—were placed in front of American crowds they deserve, setting them up for nothing but a bright future across the pond.

Mayday Parade A Lesson In Romantics 10th Anniversary Tour

No other set list this year had so many fans crying from start to finish. Whether it was screaming the lyrics to “Jamie All Over” or singing along to “Miserable At Best,” we all shed some tears as if it were 2007 over again, which is exactly what anniversary tours are supposed to do. —Natasha Heinz

Have Mercy/Boston Manor/Can't Swim/A Will Away

Have Mercy’s unbelievably stacked, alt-rock lineup hit up the biggest markets across the US of A. Taking beloved Warped Tour act Boston Manor alongside two of the scene’s most impressive up-and-coming acts, Can’t Swim and A Will Away, it’s clear there’s no better way to wrap up the year than with a tour rock dreams are made of. Maggie Dickman

Four Year Strong Rise Or Die Trying 10-year Anniversary Tour with Seaway and Like Pacific

A tour pop-punk wet dreams are fuelled on, the second part of FYS' North American Rise Or Die Trying 10-year anniversary tour was nothing short of electric. The well-crafted lineup featured industry legends Four Year Strong supported by our scene's hottest established acts Seaway and Like Pacific combined with hyped up-and-comers Grayscale and Life LessonsGriffin Elliot

Riot Fest

When I say my two favorite bands are Streetlight Manifesto and Paramore, you may give me a strange look. It’s OK, though, because Riot Fest understands, and Riot Fest rules. To stand outside in darkness in a sea of thousands watching both my favorite bands play reminds me that sometimes life is fucking good. Shelbey Surgent
