Prague will see a huge lineup of concerts in 2020

The major venues in Prague will host everything from rising YouTube stars to rock legend’s farewell tours

In 2020, the city will see dozens of significant concerts, and even the “best of” list is massive. Fans of old-school rock can look forward to KISS and Ozzy Osbourne, both back on the final legs of their farewell tours. But it really looks like these are the final final concerts for them.

Other veteran rockers include Guns N’ Roses and Aerosmith. More hard can be found with Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, System of a Down, and Helloween.

Ace guitarists Lenny Kravitz, Eric Clapton, and Joe Satriani are all scheduled to return. Clapton was last in Prague in 2013 for his 50th anniversary tour.

Progressive rock band Yes will play their entire classic 1974 album Relayer, and Jethro Tull will highlight their prog years. Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will also return with his Saucerful of Secrets band to play Pink Floyd’s trippy early work. A Pink Floyd tribute band form the UK has a show at the Congress Center.

One Direction member Harry Styles will likely bring in the teen crowd for his Love on Tour show, while former teens have a chance to see the Kelly Family.

Pet Shop Boys are sure to please ’80s synth pop fans, and so far are the biggest group of that era to be announced.

The list skews predominantly male, but there are several notable women. Aside from Avril Lavigne, who is back on the road after a long illness, there’s Celine Dion, Beth Hart, Bonnie Tyler, Suzi Quatro, Sofi Tukker and Chelsea Wolfe. An Amy Winehouse tribute show called Forever Amy features musicians who played with Winehouse.
