Noah Kahan’s Upcoming Headlining Tour Is Beyond His “Wildest Dreams”

Rising singer/songwriter Noah Kahan is blown away by the scale of his upcoming headlining tour. During a recent interview on the Americana Awards & Honors red carpet, the 26-year-old talent shared his disbelief over the scale of his recently announced schedule of 2024 performances.

“Even in my wildest dreams, if you asked me as a little kid what my dream was, I think this would’ve been too big,” Kahan tells American Songwriter. “I can’t believe it. I am constantly grateful.”

The Vermont native has had a landmark year, launched by the viral success of his infectious pop-folk song “Stick Season.” The hit single also became the title track for Kahan’s third studio album, released in October 2022, which soared to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts.

Kahan’s rapid rise to success and growing fanbase led to what will be his largest-scale headlining trek to date. Announced earlier this month, the We’ll All Be Here Forever Tour includes stops at arenas and amphitheaters across North America, including two closing performances at Fenway Park in Boston.

“As a New Englander, playing Fenway Park is something you can only dream about,” Kahan explains. “There is something so incredibly special about that place, and to me, it represents what’s great about New England, and getting a chance to play it is the ultimate honor.”

Although Kahan’s emergence onto the mainstream music scene is recent, the songsmith has been steadily touring and releasing music since sharing his debut album, Busyhead, in 2017. Those years of hard work and determination have finally paid off, but his newfound level of success arrived much sooner than expected.

“I literally told my management that I will retire if I ever play Fenway Park. And now the conversation is getting more and more real, playing venues like Madison Square Garden and The Gorge… I don’t know,” Kahan says, shaking his head in bewilderment. “I need to convince myself that I deserve it, but it’s an unbelievable privilege.”
