Summer Shows

As summer approaches, increased availability in our schedules coincides with a wide variety of concerts to attend, from the hugely popular to the underground. Below are some big ticket upcoming concerts (as well as a couple of personal favorites)

John Flansburgh and John Linnell have made a name for themselves as the duo behind They Might be Giants by writing some seriously silly music. With such hits as “The Statue Got Me High” and “Doctor Worm,” their concerts on June 14 and 15 promise to be as wild as the music they create.

In the Twin Cities August 16 and 18, this longtime heavy metal band is sure to leave rockers with a night of great music… and sore ears. Metallica is known for such hits as “Enter Sandman,” “Nothing Else Matters,” and “Master of Puppets.” Dylan Johnson, ‘27, describes the band as “thrashy, and full of energy.” Johnson plans to see the band when they come to town and is incredibly excited. 

The Beach Boys

The Beach Boys come to town on July 9 and 10, older now but with all of their same hits. Many of their top songs, such as “Wouldn’t it be Nice,” “Good Vibrations,” and “Surfin’ USA” are sure to still remind listeners of relaxing on the beach without a care in the world, and their concerts promise to be a treat for all attendees.

Known for his mystique, as he often wears a mask while performing, country singer Orville Peck is at the armory on June 11. Peck is a relative newcomer to the music scene, releasing his first album in 2019, but has already gained popularity for his rich and soulful voice. The native South African is responsible for hits such as “Dead of Night” and “Roses are Falling,” and he is sure to attract a sizable crowd when he comes to Minneapolis.
