BEYONCÉ We'd barely stopped vibrating from Queen Bey's stark, enigmatic "Formation" when she rocked the world with her new video album. When life gives you "Lemonade," you jump in the car and make tracks for the stadium. June 3, 7:30 p.m. $50-$310. Gillette Stadium, Foxborough. 800-745-3000,

VENOM INC. Guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn and drummer Tony "Abaddon" Bray were two-thirds of Venom, the British metal outfit whose second LP, "Black Metal," lent its name to an entire genre. They're reclaiming their dark legacy now alongside bassist/vocalist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan, Venom frontman from 1988 to 1992. June 2, 8 p.m. $25, advance $20. ONCE Lounge & Ballroom, Somerville. 617-285-0167,

WAX IDOLS + KING WOMAN Two of the most consistently fascinating acts operating at the cusp of shoegaze, metal, industrial, and goth, each fronted by an intense, darkly magnetic vocalist: Hether Fortune (formerly of White Lung) with Wax Idols, Kristina Esfandiari with King Woman. June 5, 9 p.m. $12. Great Scott. 800-745-3000.
