Summer is the peak of concert-going season in Minnesota. With outdoor festivals and neighborhood events almost every weekend and warm weather bringing everyone together, what’s not to love? This year, a long list of big headliners will drop by on their national tours—you know, the ones that fill up whole stadiums and sell out in seconds? (Well, hopefully not that fast.)

Here is our round-up of 10 big name performers hitting Minnesota this summer. Buy your tickets soon and get ready for a show of a lifetime.

Beyoncé, Minneapolis

Monday, May 23, TCF Bank Stadium

Who better to kick off Minnesota’s summer concert season than Queen Bey herself? Beyoncé will stop at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus on her world tour, which is based on her song “Formation.” The tour created significant buzz when it was announced immediately following her Super Bowl halftime performance. Some tickets remain on Ticketmaster and there are more available through VividSeats and other resale outlets.

James Taylor, Mankato and Duluth

Tuesday, May 31, Verizon Wireless Center

Wednesday, June 1, AMSOIL Arena

Yet he remains a humble and down-to-earth performer, and will be in Minnesota for two shows this summer, giving fans more than one chance to hear his heartfelt and sincere tunes live onstage. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.

Florence and the Machine, St. Paul

Thursday, June 2, Xcel Energy Center

The dogdays aren’t over yet with this tour based on the newest Florence album, “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.” In addition to the band’s multiple chart-topping albums, Florence and the Machine wows with the singer’s distinct voice and unique rock sound. Canadian indie pop singer Grimes will open the St. Paul show. Find tickets on Ticketmaster.

Justin Bieber, Minneapolis

Sunday, June 19, Target Center

Global pop star and constantly buzzed-about Justin Bieber makes his way back to Minnesota to ask us if it’s “too late to say sorry”–for not visiting more often. Whether you’re a longtime fan or a newer follower since his most recent and different-sounding “Purpose” album, all will be gathering to appreciate the Biebs this summer. Limited tickets are still available through Target Center.

Adele, St. Paul

Tuesday and Wednesday, July 5 and 6, Xcel Energy Center

Adele’s completely sold out tour kicks off with two nights in Minnesota, where the wildly popular singer will showcase her newest album and bring huge crowds to the Xcel Energy Center.

Goo Goo Dolls, Duluth

Sunday, July 31, Bayfront Festival Park

The Goo Goo Dolls need no introduction as they headline a huge summer tour and hit the shores of Lake Superior to bring us many songs that are close to our hearts. Wave your cellphones in the air and sing along to “Iris,” “Slide” and other classics; get there early to see openers Collective Soul. Tickets are being sold on ETix.

Boyz II Men, Moorhead

Wednesday, Aug. 10, Bluestem Amphitheater

When you think of beautiful ballads and talented a cappella harmonies, there’s one band that comes to mind, and that is Boyz II Men. If you are a fan of the ‘90s, R&B or genuine heartfelt vocals, experience the first name in the “boy band” craze at Moorhead’s Bluestem Amphitheater. Even better, En Vogue opens the show. Tickets are available on ETix.

Luke Bryan, Minneapolis

Friday, Aug. 19, U.S. Bank Stadium

Ticket information will be available soon.

Don Henley, St. Paul

Thursday, Aug. 25, Minnesota State Fair Grandstand

Big-name most certainly describes Don Henley, being a founding member of The Eagles, a tenant of pop culture with their multiple Grammys, hit singles and huge following. But he's also notable in his own right as a solo artist and is sure to delight his fans and fans of classic rock at the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Find tickets here.

Other big concerts coming this summer include Paul McCartney at Target Center (May 4), The Cure at Xcel Energy Center (June 7), Alabama at Grand Casino Hinckley (July 9), Journey and The Doobie Brothers at Xcel Energy Center (Aug. 9) and Metallica at U.S. Bank Stadium (Aug. 20).
