It's finally summer concert season (arguably the best concert season), which means you can count on spending warm nights either at outdoor venues or in air-conditioned arenas, taking in the music. The gigs this summer feature some of your favorite #throwback bands — Third Eye Blind and The All-American Rejects — as well as the annual punk rock summer camp, a.k.a. the Vans Warped Tour. And of course, it wouldn't be summer without some massive arena dates from top acts like Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars.
Here are the shows you can't miss this summer, but just know that you'll feel compelled to spend a lot of money on tickets once you read it. Don't say we didn't warn you.
