JOE JACKSON Not quite a year after this versatile singer-songwriter played a sold-out Wilbur in support of his latest album, the itinerant and excellent "Fast Forward," he's back for another pass. Same disc, same space, but you can count on seeing and hearing something fresh. too. July 12, 8 p.m. $55-$69. Wilbur Theatre. 800-745-3000,

GWEN STEFANI Yes, we've heard (and reported) that tickets for this tour haven't been selling. But c'mon: Stefani is one of the most charismatic singers pop has produced in recent years, she's got a new album, a hot opener in Eve, and possibly a thing or two to prove now. No reason to think this won't be an excellent summer night. July 12, 7 p.m. $20-$149.95. Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 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 at 6:30 p.m. $55-$104. Fenway Park.
