Spring is showering with live music: 8 shows to see in the coming weeks

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Spring is here, even if the winter-like mornings and relentless amount of rain mixed with wind continue to torture us. The good news, regardless of the weather, is that even if the temperatures are still cool, the live music calendar in the coming weeks is incredibly hot.

Here are 8 shows in the weeks ahead to keep in mind.

JUDAS PRIEST
ACCESSO SHOWARE CENTER
April 15

Metal heads, unite! Veteran hard rockers Judas Priest, fronted by openly gay lead singer Rob Halford, is heading out to the highway for a series of dates that includes a performance at the Accesso ShoWare Center in Kent. Among the band's hits you might hear this weekend are 'You've Got Another Thing Coming,' 'Electric Eye,' 'Breakin' the Law,' 'Painkiller' and well, of course, 'Heading Out to the Highway.' For tickets, try www.accessoshowarecenter.com.

MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO
DIMITRIOU'S JAZZ ALLEY
April 30

'If That's Your Boyfriend (He Wasn't Last Night)' was the book title I never came up with, but always wanted to. This title instead belongs to the bold single by openly bisexual artist Meshell Ndegeocello, who is as eclectic and accomplished as they come. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter has a new album to promote when she lands at Jazz Alley for a one-night-only appearance, but fingers crossed she adds some older material from Plantation Lullabies and Cookie: The Anthropoligical Mixtape onto each of her two sets. For reservations, log onto www.jazzalley.com.

SHANIA TWAIN
TACOMA DOME
May 3

I saw Shania Twain a few years ago during her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood and she was spectacular, interactive and bubbly and a dedicated live performer. So you'll definitely get your money's worth when this country queen arrives at the Tacoma Dome on her upcoming tour early next month. She always performs her big hits, so get ready to hear 'That Don't Impress Me Much,' 'I'm Gonna Getcha Good,' 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman!' 'You're Still the One' and my favorite, 'Forever and for Always.'

PINK
KEY ARENA
May 13

One of the hardest working artists in the business and one of the most loyal LGBT allies around, the marvelous Pink will unleash a trunkload of hits from her incredible career, several of them from her latest album Beautiful Trauma, when she comes to the Emerald City in mid-May. I'm assuming she'll blend old favorites with new songs, which means 'Raise Your Glass,' 'Try,' 'What About Us' and 'Blow Me' will probably appear on her set list at Key Arena. For tickets, go to www.ticketmaster.com.

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
EDMONDS CENTER FOR THE ARTS
May 16

Although Rufus Wainwright swings through the Puget Sound every two or three years, we still can't get enough of him and he simply has too many great songs to fill a two-hour slot. Which is why the drive or bus ride, or even a short hop aboard Amtrak, to nearby Edmonds is so worth it. The mystery is always what he'll play. Since he isn't promoting a concept album at ECA, like Prima Donna or Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall, Wainwright fans might get to hear anything from 'Going to a Town' to 'The Art Teacher' to 'Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk.' Here's hoping he includes my personal favorite, 'The One You Love.' For tickets, log onto www.edmondscenterforthearts.org.

PAUL SIMON
KEY ARENA
May 18

This is it. This is the absolute last time you'll be able to see the legendary Paul Simon perform in Seattle, so don't say you weren't told. The music icon, whose career spans multiple genres and decades, will appear at Key Arena next month on his farewell tour, allowing a final opportunity for local fans to hear 'Sound of Silence,' 'Kodachrome,' 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes,' 'Slip Slidin' Away,' 'Mother and Child Reunion,' '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover' and 'You Can Call Me Al,' just to name a few of his beloved classics. This isn't a retirement party, as Simon will likely give performances in or near his native New York, but he's throwing in the towel on touring, so it's his last stop in the Emerald City. For tickets, visit www.ticketmaster.com.

TAYLOR SWIFT
CENTURYLINK FIELD
May 22

Even in a huge stadium with thousands of screaming fans and certainly not the best acoustics, Taylor Swift managed to wow a 60,000+ audience in 2015 when she last came to Seattle. This time around, she has a new album to push, Reputation, which even though it was ushered out to record stores in the final weeks of 2017 sold enough copies to claim the top spot as the biggest-selling album of last year. Those going to see Swift in action at CenturyLink Field will hear at least a handful of tracks from Reputation, but you're probably going to also hear some of these: 'Shake It Off,' 'Bad Blood,' 'Mean,' 'I Knew You Were Trouble' and 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.' For tickets, check out www.ticketmaster.com.

CHRIS ISAAK
CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE WINERY
June 17

Chris Isaak fans were sad little cowboys and cowgirls when he axed his holiday tour last winter, which included a date at the Paramount Theatre. But let the tears of joy start flowing, as the Bay Area singer-songwriter is set to launch a spring and summer tour with a scheduled performance at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. Listening to Isaak croon to 'Wicked Game,' 'Somebody's Cryin,' 'Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing' and 'Only the Lonely' underneath a blanket of stars with a good bottle of Merlot has the makings of an amazing evening. For tickets, visit www.ticketmaster.com.
