HEART + JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS + CHEAP TRICK They're calling this trifecta "Rock Hall Three for All," a play on the Hall of Fame status each band has secured. Heart and Cheap Trick have solid new records, but you're guaranteed to hear all the classic hits, too. July 24, 6:30 p.m. $21.50-$80. Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 800-745-3000,

SUPER FURRY ANIMALS Reunited and touring for the first time since 2010, the Welsh psych-pop outfit recently heralded its return to duty with a deliciously wiggy, disorienting single, "Bing Bong." Openers Chris Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band offer an entirely different strain of psych in stinging guitar jams as heard on their latest effort, "The Rarity of Experience." July 24, 8 p.m. $25, advance $23. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,

GARBAGE Having celebrated their 20th anniversary on tour last fall, Shirley Manson & Co. return to town in support of a strong, dark new album, "Strange Little Birds," with Kristin Kontrol (Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls) in support. July 28, 8 p.m. $45, $55. House of Blues. 800-745-3000,

FIFTH HARMONY A modern-day girl group originally assembled for "The X Factor," Fifth Harmony proved with its latest LP, "7/27," that there's still plenty of potential for creativity in radio-friendly pop. Turn up in time for Foxborough native JoJo, appearing in support and likely showing off fresh songs. July 28, 7 p.m. $19.50-$59.50. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. 800-745-3000,
