Zac Brown Band, by Josh Reynolds for the Boston Globe

The week ahead: Pop & rock
Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016

ZAC BROWN BAND Though their flag is nominally planted in the country-music world, Brown and his Atlanta cohorts are seasoned hands at reaching across the aisles to invite poptimists, jam-bandsters, and rockers into their party. Saturday’s show is sold out, officially, but tickets to big events like these do tend to materialize at the last minute. Aug. 20 and 21, 6:30 p.m. $41.50-$101.50. Fenway Park. boston.redsox.mlb.com

BILLY JOEL The reigning king of Madison Square Garden pays a return visit to Fenway for the third year running; as in those previous visits, expect tart humor, revealing stories, and hit songs by the dozen. Aug. 18, 7:30 p.m. $49.50- $139.50. Fenway Park. boston.redsox.mlb.com

BOSTON FUZZSTIVAL 2016 A bona fide lollapalooza of locals, this two-day, two-stage affair brings a potent lineup of Boston and regional acts. Highlights include Lyres, the Monsieurs, and Dent on Friday, and Weakened Friends, Zip-Tie Handcuffs, Major Stars, Doug Tuttle, and Quilt on Saturday. Aug. 19, 6 p.m. $15. Aug. 20, 2 p.m. $20. Two-day pass $30. Middle East, Cambridge. 617-864-3278, http://www.mideastclub.com
