Hot tickets

Eight live performances to see this summer and fall

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The real heat this summer can be found at concert venues around Seattle, both indoor and outdoor. So don't spend all your money on ice cream - you'll need some of it for these upcoming live shows.

Adele
July 25-26
KeyArena

Adele can do no wrong. She is, of course, Adele - a superwoman of pop who appeals to the masses yet appeases snooty critics and the most indie of music listeners as well. The English pop star's newest album, 25, featuring the powerful smash 'Hello,' has sold 19 million copies globally, eight million of them domestically. The tour, 'Adele Live 2016,' kicked off in February at Belfast's SSE Arena and has traveled through Europe since then, but lands in North America the first week of July for a sold-out slate that includes two Seattle performances. If you have tickets to see Adele on either night, consider yourself very lucky.

Fitz and the Tantrums
August 20
Marymoor Park

Who doesn't love a good party band? For a good time call these folks, L.A.'s Fitz and the Tantrums, who released their third studio album, the self-titled follow-up to 2013's More Than Just a Dream, on June 10. The leadoff single, 'Handclap,' is already a hit on radio stations across the country and the accompanying music video has collected over 1.5 million views on YouTube. The fun, sassy, six-piece unit returns to the Sound this summer with a show in Redmond, and where there's Fitz and the Tantrums there's a good bash waiting to happen.

Nick Jonas/Demi Lovato
August 21
KeyArena

These two. What's not to love about them, right? The youngest and hunkiest Jonas brother is balancing a music, acting, and modeling career, and quite honestly I don't care what he's selling, I'll buy it. Last Year Was Complicated, released this month, is his third studio album and features the leadoff single 'Close' with Tove Lo. Lovato has five studio albums under her belt, including 2015's Confident, and has a remarkable voice, as evidenced when she belted out a cover of Adele's 'Hello' right here in Seattle last year. Together, they're a combo not to miss. Lucky for us, Jonas and Lovato are co-headlining the 'Future Now' tour that makes a pit stop in Seattle in August with each artist performing their own set and possibly a collaboration or two. Where you won't see Jonas and Lovato is in North Carolina, as they axed shows in both Charlotte and Raleigh in protest of the state's anti-LGBTQ bathroom law.

Brandi Carlile
August 23-24
Woodland Park Zoo

Hometown girl Brandi Carlile earned her first Grammy nomination for her latest album, 2015's The Firewatcher's Daughter, and continues to broaden her audience with sold-out concerts from coast to coast. The folksinger-songwriter will perform back-to-back shows in front of familiar crowds at Woodland Park Zoo in August. Carlile, who has interviewed with Seattle Gay News, is also touring this summer with the Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Dawes; her ZooTunes concerts are headlining appearances with opening act The Secret Sisters.

Josh Groban
August 23
Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery

Josh Groban's upcoming performance at the majestic Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery sold out almost instantly when it was announced earlier this year. Diehard fans of the operatic pop vocalist wasted no time gobbling up tickets for his appearance at the Woodinville outdoor venue, expecting to hear everything from 'You Raise Me Up' to 'Believe' to February Song' (fingers crossed he sneaks 'Oceano' onto the set list). Stages, an interpretation of 13 Broadway musical tunes, is Groban's latest release, which earned him a Grammy nomination last year.

Hall & Oates w/Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings
September 9
White River Amphitheatre

A curious pairing to be sure, but I'm not complaining. The '70s-'80s duo Daryl Hall and John Oates are teaming up with funk-soul ensemble Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings for a summer roadshow that promises many opportunities to get down. From 'Maneater' and 'Out of Touch' to '100 Days, 100 Nights' and 'Got a Thing on My Mind,' this concert already sounds amazing three months out. Hall & Oates, as they're more commonly known, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

Sia
September 29
KeyArena

The chandelier singer is touring for the first time in five years, as part of her 'Nostalgic for the Present Tour.' Having wowed fans at Coachella earlier this spring, the Australian performer is ready to conquer the rest of the world with songs from her own albums, such as 'Titanium' and 'Elastic Heart,' and perhaps something she's written for a long list of other artists, including Rihanna and Beyoncé. The KeyArena date marks the launch of the North American leg of her tour, which includes stops in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Orlando, and many other cities. The concert will also include performances by special guests Miguel and AlunaGeorge.

Maroon 5
October 11
KeyArena

In another life, I want to return as Adam Levine's showerhead (or shower curtain, or bar of soap). I'm definitely not the only person who lusts after Maroon 5's sexy frontman, a longtime strong LGBTQ ally and outspoken Gay rights supporter. The group canceled two September concerts in North Carolina in protest of the state's controversial HB2 law, but all other dates on its 'Maroon V Tour' are still on, including the October show in Seattle. M5 is still promoting 2014's V album, featuring the singles 'Maps' and 'Animals.'
