Leon Russell Leon Russell Leon Russell Leon Russell

Russell up close: With performance credits as diverse as The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Willie Nelson, 71-year-old Leon Russell may single-handedly be the most impressive session player in history. Of course, he's also a highly respected solo artist who's still quite active in his golden years, releasing a collaborative album with Elton John in 2010 and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a year later.

Arie's neo-soul stylings: The creative renaissance continues for Inda.Arie on her fifth studio album "Songversation," which is amongst the year's best neo-soul projects thus far. Though she's touring in support of the project, fans will likely score a fair share of smooth grooves and socially conscious songwriting, dating all the way back to 2001's scene shaping breakthrough "Acoustic Soul."

Dave Davies Dave Davies Dave Davies

A rare appearance by The Kinks' guitarist: Best known as the founding guitarist of The Kinks, Dave Davies is a member of rock n' roll's upper echelon, especially considering his solos on "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night" continue to inspire bands of all stripes. Most will likely stake out this rare tour date for those very songs, though fans must not forget Davies also forged a prolific solo career that goes right through 2013's "I Will Be Me."
