MADONNA She’s brought the pop world pointy cone bras, freaky girl-on-girl dancers, and flying geishas. So what sort of transgressive fun will Madge introduce with her Re-Invention Tour? From the promo posters, it seems to have something to do with Louis XVI-era powdered wigs and bust-boosting corsets. Consider us intrigued. (5/24 — 8/2)

PRINCE Dig that purple leather suit out of storage! Fans are flocking to his comeback ”Musicology” tour — supposedly the last time he’ll perform old hits like ”Little Red Corvette.” (through 9/9)

DIDO Probably not the most energetic show of the season. At least not on stage: There’s certain to be some serious under-the-picnic-blanket activity once this British songstress unleashes her romantic trip-pop. Tell the babysitter you’re gonna be late. (through 6/19)

THE GREAT HIGH MOUNTAIN TOUR It’s ”O Brother” redux with Alison Krauss and Union Station, as well as pedal-steel great Jerry Douglas, bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, the Cox Family, and others. (5/21 — 6/14)

VELVET REVOLVER Cross your fingers for this teaming of former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland with Guns N’ Roses (minus Axl). If the rehab-prone Weiland actually shows up, it should be an evening of wonderfully sleazy rock & roll. (through 6/9)

KID ROCK (through 7/2)…THE DARKNESS (5/30 — 6/25)…AL GREEN (5/28 — 10/22)…LEANN RIMES (through 8/14)…DAVID BYRNE (through 8/29)…MISSION OF BURMA (5/22 — 6/10) …TRAIN (through 7/25)…MY MORNING JACKET (through 6/20)…JASON MRAZ (through 6/27)
