For the sad sacks who didn’t catch U2’s 360 Tour the last time around, the Irish giants are returning for another leg (www .u2.com). Then groove to the eclectic tunes of legendary jam band Dave Matthews Band (www.davematthewsband.com).
MOM’S NIGHT OUT
We’ll see if Michael Buble’s seductive qualities translate in large arenas when his tour arrives stateside this month (www.michaelbuble.com). Longtime folk collaborators James Taylor and Carole King double up for a blockbuster outing (www.jamestaylor.com).
Hit-making duo Brooks & Dunn are calling it quits after their Last Rodeo tour, so get in one final boot scoot while you still can (www.brooks-dunn.com). Then check out the Zac Brown Band, whose Grammy win for Best New Artist will have them pickin’ and grinnin’ (www.zacbrownband.com).
I LOVE THE ’80s
Get your brood on at a Depeche Mode show (www.depechemode.com). Or obnoxiously belt out “Livin’ on a Prayer” as rockers Bon Jovi zigzag the continent (www.bonjovi.com).
THIS ONE’S FOR THE LADIES
You’ll see big crowds and even bigger costume designs at the arena tours of Lady Gaga (www.ladygaga.com) and Rihanna (www.rihannanow.com). But you’ll find more variety at the long-awaited second outing of Lilith Fair, featuring Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Heart and many more (www.lilithfair.com).
