Justin Bieber, Halsey, AJR, Backstreet Boys


Justin Bieber’s oft-delayed return to metro Phoenix appears to finally be happening at the end of a busy month for concerts, from Halsey’s first performance in the Valley since 2017 to Backstreet Boys bringing turn-of-the-century nostalgia to Ak-Chin Pavilion. 

Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys will launch a co-headlining tour with Chicago at Ak-Chin Pavilion while fans of the British Invasion are in for a treat when It Was 50 Years Ago Today: A Tribute to Beatles brings Todd Rundgren, Denny Laine of Wings and Joey Molland’s Badfinger to the Celebrity Theatre. 

Here’s a look at those and other highlights of concerts in Phoenix in June.

It Was 50 Years Ago Today: A Tribute to the Beatles

Todd Rundgren, a frequent member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band, joins Christopher Cross, Denny Laine (who played in Wings for many years with Paul McCartney), Jason Scheff of Chicago and Badfinger featuring Joey Molland, in paying tribute to the Beatles. This tour puts the focus squarely on two midcareer classics — “Rubber Soul” and “Revolver.” Rundgren says they’ve got the isolated tape loops from “Tomorrow Never Knows” to drop into the psychedelic mix.
