LiveNation and Dodge Theatre are teaming up to bring Downtown Phoenix a dynamic list of summer and fall concerts. Here’s what’s coming up and remember to follow Downtown Phoenix on Twitter and Facebook for concert updates and discounts, including $10 ticket promotions. 
Aug. 17 / Natalie Merchant
My personal Pantheon of desirable female singer/songwriters includes Merchant, Liz Phair, Imogen Heap, Tori Amos, and A Fine Frenzy. 
Aug. 27 / Slayer, Megadeth and Testament
A Homecoming of sorts, as Megadeth founder and former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustane is a Valley resident.
Aug. 28 / Goo Goo Dolls and Switchfoot
Fact: Johnny Rzeznik ages at the same rate as LOST’s Richard Alpert. Switchfoot has undergone a bit of a reinvention with its new record. Watch the video for “Mess of Me” here.
Aug. 29 / Charlie Daniels Band
He of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and Geico commerical fame.
Sept. 1 / David Gray and Ray LaMontagne
FACT: Chicks dig David Gray and Ray LaMontagne.
FUSE StudiosSept. 15 / Honda Civic Tour featuring Paramore with Tegan and Sara
My knowledge of Paramore is extremely limited but I understand they are a big deal among the Twilight set. Also, the lead singer contributed to this current radio hit.
Sept. 18 / Margaret Cho
Cho kicks off a week of top-shelf comedy at the Dodge.
Sept. 25 / Daniel Tosh (two shows!)
If you haven’t watched “Tosh.0” on Comedy Central, you’re doing yourself a grave injustice. Hilarious.
Oct. 1 / Australian Pink Floyd
Described by the London Times as “the best tribute show in the world,” The Australian Pink Floyd show brings their “Greatest Hits World Tour” to Phoenix. Tickets on sale Monday Aug. 23 at 10 a.m.
Oct. 9 / Jerry Seinfeld
Yada, yada, yada, and so on.
Oct. 14 / Kenny Rogers with The Herndon Brothers
You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold em/know when to walk away, know when to run.
Oct. 26 / Gorillaz
Damon Albarn and Co. promise a highly theatric performance. Here’s live footage of Plastic Beach’s “Stylo.”
Nov. 18 / Black Label Berzerkus featuring Black Label Society and Clutch
For those who enjoy a good ear bleed.
yo_gabba_gabbaNov. 27 / Jim Gaffigan
Gaffigan authored the greatest Hot Pockets bit EVER.
Dec. 4 & 5 / Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!
Any show endorsed by Biz Markee is OK in our book.
Dec. 11 / Brian Regan
Regan has a tremendous following here in Phoenix and with good reason. Sample his comic stylings here.
