Mastodon – Thursday, May 12
As one of the most original influential American metal bands to appear in the 21st century, Mastodon’s progressive approach to the metal genre has earned them a loyal following, a Grammy nomination and dozens of Billboard charting hits.

Rise Against & The Used – Wednesday, July 20
Two multi-gold and platinum punk rock bands are joining forces for a night of music both nostalgic and new. Getting their start in the early 2000s, Rise Against quickly earned a devoted fan base with their first two albums thanks in part to their progressive lyrics and old-school punk vocals. After signing with a major label in 2003 the band released “Siren Song of the Counter Culture” which eventually went certified gold and brought them commercial success. Rise Against's 2021 album “Nowhere Generation” debuted at the top of multiple Billboard charts with its first week sales and the title track lead single earned the band their first No. 1 spot at Rock radio in the U.S.
Following the release of their debut album in 2002, The Used’s hit singles “A Box Full of Sharp Objects,” “The Taste of Ink” and “Buried Myself Alive” helped propel the album to platinum and cement the band as a staple in the emo music genre. As their presence on the touring circuit increased, they hit a mainstream peak with 2004’s platinum “In Love and Death” and its follow-up “Lies for the Liars.” The band’s 2021 album “Heartwork” features guests like Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker and has aided in the resurgence of the emo genre.
Tickets for Rise Against & The Used start at $49.50, plus additional taxes and fees. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show at 8 p.m.
Bronco – Friday, August 26
Hailing from Apodaca, Mexico, Bronco’s modern take on the Norteño style in the ’80s and ’90s helped earn them a number of international hits. Band members José Guadalupe Esparza, Ramiro Delgado, Javier Villareal, and José Luís ‘Choche’ Villareal crafted a sound that paid tribute to the Norteño tradition while incorporating modern instruments like keyboards, as well as a more melodic, pop style with elaborate costumes. Between 1987 and 2012 they placed 16 albums in the Top 10 on the Mexican Regional Albums charts including six No. 1 albums with hit songs like “Que No Quede Huella,” “Sergio el Bailador” and “No Nos Vamos a Olvidar.” Tickets for Bronco start at $45, plus additional taxes and fees. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show at 8 p.m.
Tedeschi Trucks Band – Sunday, August 28
Led by Derek Trucks’ stinging fretwork and Susan Tedeschi’s emotive vocals and guitar talents, Tedeschi Trucks Band is one of the premier live bands performing today. The Grammy-award winning 12-member strong collective continues to expand musical boundaries and receive recognition for their genre-defying music. From uplifting soulful anthems, to bitter sweet ballads and driving rock and roll, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a sound and message that taps into tradition, while also pushing the edges of American music. Special guests Los Lobos and Gabe Dixon will join Tedeschi Trucks Band, making it a night of unforgettable rock and soul music. Tickets for Tedeschi Trucks Band start at $45.50, plus additional taxes and fees. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show at 8 p.m.
