You know it's going to be an epic concert when Slash, one of the greatest rock 'n' roll guitarists known to mankind, is your opening act. Only Aerosmith, the best-selling rock band of all time, could top the excitement generated by seeing the legendary Guns N' Roses ax-man jam with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Aerosmith's legendary vocalist Steven Tyler will keep the crowds cheering (and scarves fluttering) as he belts out hit after hit, from "Dream On" to "Janie's Got a Gun" to "Love in an Elevator" and many more, with Joe Perry on lead guitar. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime show as these music gods roll into Concord Pavilion on their Let Rock Rule tour. Learn More

If Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is crystalline grace and sparkling sophistication, Piazzolla’s version is streetwise verve and tangy in color. Each of Vivaldi’s four concertos for violin and chamber orchestra — performed here by the dynamic Lara St. John — recalls the character of its appointed season through evocative composition, and is one of the best loved of all Baroque works. In contrast, Tango master Astor Piazzolla’s pieces were never meant to be performed together. Yet as a group, and performed interleaved with Vivaldi’s four movements, listeners are treated to a captivating expression of the cycles of life.
