Valentines Day has reared it’s head once again as a nice reminder for all the single folks out there that they are still totally alone. Never fear though, Songkick and our pals over at Tastebuds.fm are here to save you from the prospect of lonely nights in looking at Breaded Cats.
We’ve mashed up their data with ours to point you in the right direction of which concerts are most likely to be a hot spot for potential romance (you might have to alter your usual musical tastes, but in the name of love and all…).
First up, according to the Tastebuds.fm survey, here are the top 5 artists whose fans are most likely to make a move at a concert:
1) Kid Cudi
2) The Offspring
3) Maroon 5

The rest of the top artists were also interestingly skewed towards rock and metal, with fans of Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and Guns N’ Roses featuring high on the list. Who knew those rockers were such softies at heart eh.
Without further ado, here’s our pick of the top upcoming 5 shows you should go to to get chatted up at in February:
And at the other end of the spectrum, just to keep things balanced, here are the Top 5 artists whose fans are least likely to chat someone up…
