Lynyrd Skynyrd » If you’ve ever snottily yelled "Play ‘Free Bird’ " at a rock concert, you can thank Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band that actually released the song in 1973. The core of the band consists of guitarist Gary Rossington (the only founding member still in the band) and singer Johnny Van Zant, younger brother of the late Ronnie Van Zant. The band released its last album in 2012, but fans will be assured that the classics, such as the hit "Sweet Home Alabama," will be in the set list. And, hey, maybe you can request "Free Bird." Opening act: Tesla.

Keith Urban » Even if you have just a passing interest in country music, you know Keith Urban for being one of the judges on "American Idol," or as the husband of actress Nicole Kidman or the brother of actor Karl Urban ("The Lord of the Rings," "Star Trek"). Country fans know the Australian star for his five platinum albums, his numerous No. 1 hits like "But for the Grace of God," "Stupid Boy" and "Sweet Thing," his four Grammys and many other awards. Mostly, they know Urban by the affable charm and surfer-like good looks he displays in his live shows. Opening acts: Jerrod Niemann, Brett Eldredge.
