Another year has come and gone--just as quickly as it came, 2017 is on its way out, and 2018 and whatever it may bring is looming ever closer. But we still have some time left to take in some live music before the year officially comes to a close, and New Year's Eve is the perfect time to do it. After all, is there a better way to say goodbye to one year and welcome the next? And Kansas City has plenty of concerts happening for New Year's, from ambitious bashes to local parties. So put on your finest, pop some champagne, and get your tickets to have a fun, memorable holiday.
