Spring is here. Well, perhaps it's more apt to say the first quarter of 2014 is done. Though the weather has been brutal, we've been able to spend some quality time in the warm confines of sports arenas watching huge concert tours. Huge names hit the road this winter—Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Lorde—and we (and our colleagues in New York) were there to capture it. Oh, and Miley Cyrus dressed up like a blunt and danced with a hairy purple shark.

Over the next few months, we get to see the National take over Chicago Theatre for days, Morrissey in an opera house, Disclosure in a zoo—not to mention Haim, Vampire Weekend and more. Stay tuned for images.

Check out more recent concert photos of Drake, 2 Chainz, Chance the Rapper and more.
