Looking for something to do this week? How about a concert?

There is a selection of genres to choose from. With big names such as Foreigner and 3 Doors Down, there is an artist for everyone.

1. Oh Wonder
Monday, July 16
8 p.m.
Delmar Hall

Described as R&B and “slow-grooving,” Oh Wonder is an example of the term “self-made.”

During the release of Oh Wonder’s do-it-yourself self-titled album in 2015, the band went viral online, racking up millions of streams, which resulted in the duo being signed to Republic Records. 

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or through Suite 100 at The Pageant. All tickets purchased in person with cash at Suite 100 will be discounted to face value. Hours for Suite 100 can be found on The Pageant’s website. There is a $2 minor surcharge.

2. Attila and Suicide Silence
Tuesday, July 17
7 p.m.
Pops (Sauget, Illinois)

Heavy metal quintet Attila “never write the same album twice,” according to its Facebook page. The band’s 2013 album “About That Life” came in at 22 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold over 14,00 copies in its first week. Attila has toured with other big names in heavy metal such as Asking Alexandria and Memphis May Fire.

After the November 2012 death of the original frontman Mitch Luker, Suicide Silence changed its tone. The band got a new lead singer in 2013 and saw its tone shift from deathcore to a more “melodic nu-metal driven direction,” according to Spotify.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online through TicketWeb or in person at the venue. Tickets can be purchased online until 7 p.m. on the day of the show. There is a $2 minor surcharge.

3. ZZ Ward: The Storm Tour
Tuesday, July 17
8 p.m.
Delmar Hall

Described as having a “raw, powerful blend of blues and hip-hop,” ZZ Ward got most of her inspiration from listening to her father’s blues collection and her brother’s hip-hop records. Her blend of genres got her a recording contract with Boardwalk Entertainment Group and Hollywood Records.

Tickets are $22.50 and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or through Suite 100 at The Pageant. All tickets purchased in person with cash at Suite 100 will be discounted to face value. Hours for Suite 100 can be found on The Pageant’s website. There is a $2 minor surcharge.

5. Cody Johnson Band
Thursday, July 19
8 p.m. 
Delmar Hall

Debuting in the Top 10 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart in 2014 with “Cowboy Like Me,” Cody Johnson is hard at work to make his name well-known. He sounds like country stars Jason Aldean and Tim McGraw with his “smoky baritones and ultra-Southern enunciations.”

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or through Suite 100 at The Pageant. All tickets purchased in person with cash at Suite 100 will be discounted to face value. Hours for Suite 100 can be found on The Pageant’s website. There is a $2 minor surcharge.

6. Peter Mayer

Three Doors Down‘s album “The Better Life,” released in 2000, went platinum four times during the first year of its release. “Kryptonite” is the band’s most popular song to-date with over 240 million streams on Spotify.

Collective Soul is getting ready to celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary as a band in 2019. Its legacy is as “strong as ever” according to Spotify and the band said it is because of “the music.”

Tickets for general admission lawn seating and reserved seating are $20 or $14.75 if purchased in bundles of four and can be purchased online through Live Nation or through the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre box office. Box office hours can be found on the event page.

8. Joe Jackson
Saturday, July 21
8 p.m.
The Pageant

This artist is not to be confused with the late Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson. Jackson “possesses a restless musical imagination” that has caused him to experiment with a wide variety of musical genres such as reggae, jump blues and R&B, according to his Spotify page.

Tickets for this event are nearly sold out, but the ones that are left are $55. Verified resale tickets are available for purchase through Ticketmaster, but these tickets are higher than the original value of the tickets.

9. The Get Up Kids

The emo band The Get Up Kids became one of the most popular and influential emo, punk-driven bands of the ’90s with “hyper melodies” and “heartfelt lyrics.” The band’s most popular song to-date, “Holiday,” has over 2 million streams on Spotify.
