Whether you are 15 or 50, somebody is coming to the area this summer who is going to make you want to break open that piggy bank, cash in that 401(K), put in some overtime at work, sell a few valuables on eBay or empty that bank account to buy some (oftentimes pricey) concert tickets.

However you get the scratch together to rock out at the shows is on you, but we’ve compiled a list of notable concerts coming through the area this summer.
