Barry sings the Bee Gees: Between his immensely successful time in the Bee Gees, through a solo career that also found him penning hits for the likes of Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, there are plenty of reason to make this Barry Gibb concert a priority. Aside from being the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first ever solo tour, he's playing just six cities in America and early set list indications promise everything from "New York Mining Disaster 1941" to all the "Saturday Night Fever" staples, plus songs he wrote for others like "Islands In The Stream."

B.B. belts out the blues: With a career that dates all the way back to the late 1940s, B.B. King is still the undisputed "King of the Blues" to this very day. At 88-years-young, he's not only survived but continues to thrive on the road playing classics like "The Thrill Is Gone," "Everyday I Have The Blues" and "Three O'Clock Blues," while showcasing guitar playing chops that have since laid the blueprints for Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Jeff Beck, amongst probably millions more.

Paisley launches summer: For the second year in a row, Brad Paisley kicks off the outdoor summer concert season at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, and considering the smash single off his last album "Wheelhouse" is called "Beat This Summer," he sure is the perfect candidate. Besides boasting some of the best rock n' country offerings West Virginia's ever offered, his seasoned guitar grinding is right up there with the greats.
