Arizona Bike Week is not quite a music festival, not in the traditional sense, but it certainly has a great line-up of bands this week:
Blackberry Smoke & Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on Wednesday, April 6
Warrant & Blues Traveler on Thursday, April 7
Reverand Horton Heat & Social Distortion on Friday, April 8
Ratt & Buckcherry on Saturday, April 9
Arizona Bike Week is at Westworld in Scottsdale and, of course, features a whole lot more than just the concerts. Tickets are a very reasonable $58 for a pass for the whole week or $25 for Wednesday or Thursday & $30 for Friday or Saturday. Tickets are available at http://www.AZBikeWeek.com.
23 year old Tori Kelly has been writing, arranging and producing her own music since she was 16 – and to great acclaim. Kelly’s debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released in June 2015 and her lead single, Nobody Love, became her first Billboard Hot 100 hit and earned her a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2016 Grammy Awards. The concert in Tempe will be the second on Kelly’s 2016 spring tour which will include 30 shows over six weeks. Kelly will be at the Marquee in Tempe on April 6. Tickets are available at http://www.luckymanonline.com.
Kill Switch Engage brings home a busy week with what’s bound to be another epic concert at the Marquee. Hot on the heels of the release of its latest album Incarnate, which was released on March 11, 2016. The album was released barely a week before the start of the spring 2016 tour. KSE always delivers a high-energy, in your face show and this one should be no different. KSE will be at the Marquee in Tempe on April 9. Tickets are available at http://www.luckymanonline.com.
