Stephanie Alejandro:
1. Twenty One Pilots – Emotional Roadshow Tour

“Emotional Roadshow in Duluth was my favorite concert of 2016. I’ve seen the band eight times over the course of the last 3 ½ years though, so I may be biased…but the production was so good, and they were interactive with the crowd as always.  But what I loved most was that they had a B-stage at every show; it made the show feel a lot more intimate like old times, even though it was an arena show.”

2. Justin Bieber – Purpose Tour
3. Halsey – Badlands Tour
4. Kanye – Saint Pablo Tour
5. Adele – Adele Live Tour
6. Rihanna – ANTI World Tour
7. The 1975 -The North American Tour (I heard they had different variations of their setlist each night so that no show was the exact same, so that’s cool.)

Well, obviously it's an online magazine.
