August Pittsburgh Concerts



MUST-SEE SHOW:
8/18 Paul McCartney @ Consol Energy Center
This month's must-see show is a no-brainer. Any time you get a chance to see a Beatle, you go. (Even if it's Ringo.) Paul McCartney makes his first stop in the Burgh in years. Crazy off-the-wall prediction: He's going to play "Hey Jude."

ALSO WORTH ATTENDING:
8/6 Heart @ Station Square Amphitheatre

I've been wanting to see Heart forever but I keep missing them, and it's not going to happen this time either, as we'll both be at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Their three-decade body of work includes great '70s rock songs like "Magic Man" and "Barracuda," though of course I'm partial to the cheesy 80s hits "Alone," "Never" and "These Dreams," one of which might be appearing in my upcoming 'Favorite 100 songs of all-time' countdown (I won't give away which one just yet.)

Others to keep in mind:
8/1 John Mayer & Train @ First Niagara Pavilion
8/7 Mayhem Festival with Korn & Rob Zombie @ First Niagara Pavilion
8/11 Jonas Brothers & Demi Lovato @ First Niagara Pavilion
8/12 Jimmy Buffett @ First Niagara Pavilion
8/12 Vanilla Ice @ Altar Bar

8/14 Beth Orton @ Mr. Small's
8/15 We Are Scientists @ Brillobox
