Barenaked Ladies: The multiplatinum-selling Barenaked Ladies is launching their 2015 Last Summer on Earth Tour.

Opening for Barenaked Ladies at JBL Live at Pier 97 are alt-rock heroes Violent Femmes (“Blister in the Sun”) and Colin Hay of Men at Work. Discount tickets for $25 instead of $67.50, on Wed. July 1.
Neil Young in Concert: See the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. With his distinctive guitar work and singing style, Young is a one-of-a-kind performer — definitely a musician you need to see at least once in your lifetime. You’ll hear hits like “After the Gold Rush,” “Harvest Moon,” “Rockin’ in the Free World” and a whole lot more. Opening the show is Brooklyn’s alt-country band Puss N Boots. Discount tickets for $80 instead of $153, on Tues., July 21.
Nickleback: These post-grunge rockers are known for inspiring intense love in some, while inspiring equally intense hate in others. Hipsters love to bash them, but it doesn’t stop the crowds of superfans from flooding the arenas to see Chad Kroeger and his bandmates rock the stage. Nickelback has sold more than 50 albums with their signature sound that blends rough vocals and distorted guitars with slick production values that sent singles like “How You Remind Me” and “Photograph” soaring up the charts. Opening the show at Jones Beach Theater is the band Lifehouse, best known for the 2001 hit single, “Hanging by a Moment.” Discount tickets for $30 instead of $76, on Friday, August 14.
