Thursday, June 30, 2016

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 2 at 7 p.m. $37.50-$149.50. Koussevitzky Music Shed, Tanglewood, Lenox. 888-266-1200, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. $39.50-$129.50. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. 800-745-3000,

TREDICI BACCI Composer, arranger, and guitarist Simon Hanes is the creative force behind Tredici Bacci, a 14-piece pop orchestra that specializes in the slinky, seductive sounds of Italian sex-romp soundtracks. Sharing this Boston Hassle bill are Erica Eso, the new synth-pop project from Weston Minissali (Hanes's bandmate in indie-rock sextet Cloud Becomes Your Hand), plus locals JOSS and Sydney Kinchen. June 30, 8 p.m. $10. Out of the Blue Too Gallery, Cambridge.

PETER GABRIEL + STING They're playing together and even doing each other's songs; if you've ever wanted to hear Gabriel sing "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" or Sting do "Shock the Monkey," here's your chance. The tour's called "Rock Paper Scissors" so presumably the match ends in a draw. July 2, 8 p.m. $45-$250. DCU Center, Worcester. 800-653-8000,
