In the upcoming weeks, some exciting concerts are coming to Michigan.

Stars such as Billie Eilish, Post Malone, Elton John, Blake Shelton and Garth Brooks are among those coming in February and March.

Detroit Mercy students discussed what bands they look forward to seeing soon and even gave a little background on what these bands mean to them.

James Hofmann, a psychology major, says he will be going to the Billie Eilish concert March 23 with his sister. Eilish is playing Little Caesars Arena.

“I really enjoy her music because I connect with it on a deep level,” he said.

Hofmann noted that his favorite songs by her are “Xanny” and “My Boy.”

Kara Wolfbauer, a communications major, said that if she could go to any concert this month, she would pick Post Malone, who is playing in Grand Rapids Feb. 12.

“I really like how his songs are all different genres of music,” she said. “He has a lot of hip hop and pop but also some rap and R&B.”

Wolfbauer described him as “extremely versatile.”

“I really appreciate that,” she said.

Her favorite songs by Malone are “Die For Me” and “Hollywood’s Bleeding.”

Joe Loria, an architecture major, has already seen Post Malone, so he would choose to see Highly Suspect on Feb. 15 at 20 Monroe Live in Grand Rapids.

“I heard them off Spotify with their debut album and absolutely loved it,” he said. “I liked what their music was about and the style and sound of it.”

Loria likes the group’s latest album, “MCID.”

“It’s a big step away from what people like about them because it’s a lot of electronic and weird styles but it’s a cool concept,” he said.

In particular, Loria likes the songs “Lydia,” “Snow White” and “Breaking Point.”

Among some of the big-name concerts set for the coming months are Blake Shelton on March 21, Elton John on May 1-2 and Tame Impala on May 31 – all at Little Caesars Arena.

Garth Brooks will be at Ford Field Feb. 22.
