Tyler The Creator, Jonas Brothers, The Who and more top concerts this week


Top performances coming to town this week include The Who, Jonas Brothers, Tyler The Creator, Clairo, Sam Divine and Bring Me The Horizon.

10.15: Ride

After a 20-year hiatus, the pioneering U.K. shoegazers returned with their fifth studio album, Weather Diaries, in 2017. They followed it with another, This Is Not a Safe Place, in August. Both new albums were produced by DJ Erol Alkan.

@ House of Blues,

10.16: The Who

“It’s ooooonly teeeeenage wasteland!” It’s really kind of hard to believe, but even in their 55th year (!!) the indomitable U.K. rockers are still at it. But with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend continuing to suit up every night, there’s no excuse to not go and see these legends one more time.

10.17: Jonas Brothers

Pop superstar siblings Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas have reunited for the first time in six years and are celebrating the occasion with a new album and tour. The new album, Happiness Begins, was released in June and debuted in the top spot on the U.S. Billboard 200. It also went to No. 1 in Mexico and Canada, and cracked the top 10 in countries across the globe.

10.17: Lost Frequencies

Belgian DJ and producer Felix De Laet (aka Lost Frequencies) was last in San Diego at Parq in February. He returns after releasing 23-song, twin-disc sophomore album, Alive and Feeling Fine, earlier this month. It features collaborations with Aloe Blacc, James Blunt, Mokita, Kyla La Grange and more.

@ Music Box,

10.18: Clairo

Singer/songwriter Clairo, aka 21-year-old Claire Cottrill, released her debut album, Immunity, in August. It features Danielle Haim on a pair of tracks and was produced by former Vampire Weekend multi-instrumentalist/producer Rostam Batmanglij.

@ House of Blues,

10.19: Tyler, The Creator

The rapper, producer, fashion designer and one-time leader of the Odd Future hip collective released his self-produced fifth studio album, Igor, in May. It features appearances from Playboi Carti, Kanye West, Solange, Pharrell and others, while also standing as Tyler’s first-ever No. 1 album. Rapper Goldlink opens the show.

@ Pechanga Arena,

10.18: Sam Divine

The London-based Ibiza regular is also the host of the weekly Defected Records radio show. Although Divine has recently branched out into production as well, her latest release is a 60-song DJ mix, Defected Ibiza 2019, with label boss Simon Dunmore.

@ Bang Bang,

10.18: 4B

New Jersey-based DJ and producer Bobby McKeon (aka DJ 4B) was last here with RL Grime in February as part of the LED Anniversary show at Pechanga Arena. McKeon has released tracks on both Diplo’s Mad Decent Records and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, but his latest single, Told You, dropped at the end of August on Ultra Records.


10.19: Bring Me The Horizon

There’s a pretty stark contrast between the U.K. metalcore outfit’s 2006 debut, Count Your Blessings, and its January-released sixth studio album, Amo. The one-time caustic screamers have evolved into a genre-defying collective that relies more on programming than it does on guitars. Amo even features collaborations with beatboxer Rahzel and dream pop siren Grimes.

@ Viejas Arena,

10.19: Prok & Fitch

The English DJ/production duo of Ben Prok and James Fitch first met in a record store and have worked together ever since. This year has been an especially busy one for the pair, releasing three singles – Roller Girl, The Homie and Wow – as well as a new EP, July’s Pop in Pop out.
