The Best Concerts in New York City in February

Updated: 25 January 2018
Between the frigid temperatures, precipitation, and the seemingly never-ending, bitter wind gusts that streak New York’s streets, it’s difficult to find the motivation to go anywhere besides the office and the Netflix theater that is bed during the winter. But nothing warms the body and the soul like a good concert.

Following up on a fantastic year for music, New York is already pulling in a slew of spectacular artists that have us excited for what lies ahead in 2018. From rising acts like Brockhampton and ALA.NI, to tributes to greats like David Bowie and J Dilla, here are our most anticipated shows in February.
