The week ahead: Pop & rock
Thursday, July 14, 2016

LUKE BRYAN The pop-country superstar shrugged off his spring break fixation with last year’s “Kill the Lights,” but that doesn’t mean he’s not all about a good time. His Saturday night show has been sold out for ages, but you can still score tickets for Friday; the strong support bill includes Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, and Dustin Lynch. July 15, 16, 5:30 p.m. $39.50-$125. Gillette Stadium Foxborough. 800-745-3000

BOB DYLAN + MAVIS STAPLES Here’s a case of iconic performers venturing toward new horizons while moving in opposite directions: Dylan with classic-pop standards made famous by Sinatra, Staples in songs by modern-day troubadours and alt-rockers. July 14, 7:30 p.m. $39.50-$129.50. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. 800-745-3000,

DEAD & COMPANY Maybe Dead & Company, the new Grateful Dead spin-off with singer-guitarist John Mayer (but no Phil Lesh), came too soon after you’d shed your tears for “Fare Thee Well.” Maybe you didn’t think Mayer could cut it. Maybe you didn’t want to drive to Worcester in the rain last November. Or maybe you were there, in which case you already know this combo can deliver transcendence. July 15, 16, 6:30 p.m. $55-$104. Fenway Park.
