Beginning in March 2020, the novel coronavirus pandemic kept musicians at home, grounding all major tours for months. Thanks to the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, however, there's a light at the end of the tunnel for live music fans.

Not only have some artists rescheduled their 2020 treks to 2021 -- others have announced brand-new tour plans. It's a sure sign of good things to come, even if some modifications may still have to be made.

Dan + Shay and Kane Brown have, thus far, opted to wait the longest to resume shows: Their rescheduled arena tours will kick off in September, with Brown then set to begin a brand-new tour in October.

Unfortunately, as we are still in a global pandemic, some artists have opted to again reschedule or cancel their tour plans for the time being. Maren Morris, for example, rescheduled, and then canceled, her RSVP: The Tour, and she's not the only one.

The Boot will keep this list and photo gallery updated with changes and new tours as they're announced.
