Bruno Mars & Aloe Blacc @ US Bank Arena at 8 PM
The artist who rocked the SuperBowl Halftime Show this year is having a nationwide tour, and it’s stopping in Cincy! Grammy award winner Bruno Mars will be performing hits like Treasure, Just The Way You Are, Locked Out of Heaven, and more, and he’s not coming alone. Aloe Blacc, you know…the guy from all the Beats By Dre headphone’s commercials, will also be there. Don’t miss it.
Turnpike Troubadours @ Bogarts at 7 PM
Turnpike Troubadours is an American country rock and red dirt band from Oklahoma that has been active since 2007.
Fifth Harmony @ Riverbend at 8 PM
The 5th Times A Charm tour kicks off on May 3, following hot on the heels of their opening slot on the Neon Lights Tour with Demi Lovato. Harmonizers that check out the 5th Times A Charm Tour will be treated to songs from ‘Better Together’ as well as Fifth Harmony’s upcoming full-length album. The 18-city tour will include a stop in Cincinnati, OH on Friday, June 27th.
Gordon Lightfoot @ Taft Theatre at 8 PM
“A Gordon Lightfoot concert is like an aural trip back through time. Audiences remember when they first heard If You Could Read My Mind, or summon up strong mental images to go with epic songs like Canadian Railroad Trilogy and The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Thankfully, they predate the age of music videos, ensuring everyone experiences them in a completely different and wholly personal way.” – The Chronicle Herald

Sunshine Boys @ Covendale Center For The Performing Arts at 2 PM
This will be their last performance in Cincinnati for the year. A play by Neil Simon, the story focuses on characters Al Lewis and Willy Clark, a one-time vaudevillian team known as “Lewis and Clark” who, over the course of forty-odd years, not only grew to hate each other but never spoke to each other off-stage throughout the final year of their act.
MKTO @ Bogarts at 6 PM
If you’re like myself and you noticed one of the two members in MKTO looks weirdly familiar then don’t feel like you’re losing it! Michael David Kelly, the MK of the group, was in fact Walt in the TV show “Lost”. Yes I know, mind blown, probably going to have to check them out.

Jay-Z & Beyoncé @ Great American Ballpark at 8 PM
Probably the biggest concert that hits Cincy of the Summer. Jay-Z and Beyoncé. No more words needed. The concert is this weekend and it’s going to be awesome! Great American Ballpark and the Reds don’t usually host concerts, which makes this event THAT much more special. Seriously it is one to not miss. If you’re even considering getting tickets, you should probably just click this link and DO IT! You will not be disappointed.
