Nov 28, 2012 —  December is full of festivities meant to help spark some yuletide cheer. But with Christmas carols endlessly blaring at all hours, this month can have music fans pounding back the eggnog to make it through the season. So if you’re looking for a little pick-me-up beyond the typical holiday trappings, escape the nonstop wonderland with some great upcoming concerts in December.

In Los Angeles, fans of the Fugees gear up for a rare appearance by the legendary crooner Ms. Lauryn Hill while across the pond in London, radio junkies wait to see hits like “Lights” performed by the explosive pop phenomenon Ellie Goulding. And in New York City and San Francisco, living legends like the Rolling Stones and George Clinton keep the past alive on both coasts with the classic sounds of rock and funk. Meanwhile in Berlin, local favorite Paul van Dyk spins his latest tracks late into the night as Swedish House Mafia winds down the final tour of their career in Paris.

Whether you want to drown in a wall of sound with hard-hitting roots rock or dance until daybreak to beats by some of the biggest DJs in the world, December is full of great live shows to keep your ears happy all month long. So give yourself the gift of music and book your tickets soon, because with so many iconic performers these exciting shows are sure to sell out!

What December concerts are you going to?

Used to play Lauryn Hill's "Lost Ones" on repeat. I think I'll bring it back into the mix.
Victor H. Nov 30, 2012
What a tease. I was hoping Alabama Shakes were playing somewhere near Los Angeles. I missed them the last time they were here.
Chris M. Nov 29, 2012
Going to see The Mountain Goats at the Troubadour on the 16th. Missing out on Bruce in Anaheim next week though, that will be awesome.
Samantha L. Nov 29, 2012
Life is good, Nas.
