The 2023 New Year and the holiday season are already behind us, and everyone is winding down and recapping their thoughts and resolutions. If you’re lucky enough to have that special someone in your life, though, it’s probably time to start thinking about the next big day that’s just around the corner. Valentine’s Day is certainly a special day, so why not celebrate it with a special occasion?

Valentine’s Day concerts are a great way to show your love and appreciation for the most important people in your life. Flowers and chocolates are great and all – but an amazing musical event is a memory that will last for a lifetime.

All you need for a romantic evening of celebrating love is a great act. One who can deliver the love-tinged passion that a Valentine’s Day concert deserves.

And if you need ideas for the best Valentine’s Day concerts in 2023, we have a few suggestions! Just remember that February 14th is one of the busiest days of the year for venues and musical acts. If you see an event you like, act quickly and get some tickets with TicketCenter before others snatch them up!

Anita Baker – Atlanta, GA

Let’s start with some evergreen classics. Few songstresses in the world are as famous for love ballads as Anita Baker. Her classy, powerful voice and refined jazzy melodies defined the so-called Quiet Storm era of the 80s. In fact, the term ‘quiet storm’ perfectly expresses what Anita is all about. Although most of her repertoire consists of ballads, the underlying passion with which she delivers every line has captured the hearts and minds of millions.

After a string of farewell performances and issues regarding the rights to her master recordings, many fans were worried that they’ll never get a chance to hear Baker perform live. Thankfully, though, the R&B master is going on a tour that will kick off in February 2023. The tour is slated to last throughout 2023, so you’ll have plenty of chances to hear her hits.

She’ll grace the State Farm Arena in Atlanta right on the 14th, which marks it as one of the most sought-after dates on a very popular tour.

It’s the quintessential Valentine’s Day 2023 event you don’t want to miss. Secure your Anita Baker 2023 tour tickets here.

Anita Baker Tour Dates:

US Tour: February 11 – December 23

Valentine’s Day show: February 14, State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA

Elvis Costello – New York, NY

We’ll carry on our list of top Valentine’s Day music events with something a bit more eclectic. Declan Patrick MacManus, better known as Elvis Costello, boasts a discography that ranges from new wave to punk. Arguably, however, he is best known for heart-string-pulling hits like ‘She’ and ‘I Want You’.

Unlike some other acts known for ballads, though, Costello’s shows are filled with ups and downs. Songs that will melt your heart stand right next to those that will make you dance, which is what makes his act a perfect Valentine’s Day experience.

The Elvis Costello 2023 tour will kick off with an incredible string of 10 shows in New York’s Gramercy Theatre. In other words, even if you miss tickets for the Big Day, worry not – you’ll have plenty of chances to make it up to your favorite person. The tour will then move on to a series of cities across the US and Australia.

Portland Symphony Orchestra: The Romantics – Rachmaninoff & Schumann – Portland, ME

The acclaimed Portland Symphony Orchestra can enrich your Valentine’s Day with a truly special selection of classical pieces. Pulling from great composers who defined the term ‘romantic’, the special show features time-tested compositions performed by pianist George Li.

The full Valentine’s Day 2023 concert features pieces such as:

  • Overture in C major by Hensel
  • Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, op. 43 by Rachmaninoff
  • Symphony No. 4 in D minor, op. 120 by Schumann

It’s a true feast for any fans of classical music, and a perfect occasion to celebrate the day to the soothing sounds of piano keys. Don’t spend too much time thinking about it, though – The Romantics is a one-off special event performed in Portland’s Merrill Auditorium.

The venue houses just under 2,000 seats – get your tickets now while they are still available!

Journey & Toto – Lexington, KY

Journey, one of the most famous rock bands to come out of the 70s and 80s (which says a lot), will be celebrating their 50-year anniversary with a special tour. The half-century milestone is not the only thing that makes it special, though. Joining them on stage will be none other than Toto, the musical geniuses behind hits like ‘Africa’, ‘Rosanna’, and ‘Hold the Line.’

Dubbed the Journey & Toto Freedom Tour 2023, the string of concerts kicks off on February 4. On the 14th, however, the two giants will bring a special night full of rockin’ good memories to Lexington.

Though both bands are considered rock icons, it would be hard not to see their music as a very fitting backdrop for an evening full of romance. The songs are energetic, sure, but they’re also universally committed to the little thing that makes the world go ‘round.

With big names like these, we wouldn’t be surprised to see tickets sell out as soon as they become available. So don’t risk it – get your Journey & Toto tickets now!

Journey and Toto Tour Dates:

US Tour: January 27 – April 25

Valentine’s Day show: February 14, Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY

Chris Brown – London, UK

It’s only fair that our list shows some love to our friends across the pond. This time, we’ll be going to one of the defining voices of 21st-century R&B – Chirs Brown!

Brown’s accomplishments are too long to list – and honestly, we don’t really feel there would be much point. Needless to say, he’s not known as the ‘King of R&B’ for nothing. With a long lineup of songs detailing love and desire, his performances are the perfect choice for any couple looking for an unforgettable experience.

The latest Chris Brown tour kicks off on February 11 in Dublin. Between the 14th and 17th of February, however, he’ll perform every night in the massive O2 Arena in London. In other words, if you miss Chris Brown on Valentine’s Day 2023, you can catch him the day after that. And the day after that.

To no one’s surprise, tickets are selling like crazy, so make sure to get yours as soon as possible!

Chris Brown Tour Dates:

Under the Influence tour: February 11 – March 19
