Top 8 Live Shows to See in Houston: November 2017
- Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band at Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land | Thursday, November 2 – On the heels of his nineteenth studio album, the legendary former Beatles drummer comes to Sugar Land with the backing of bandmates Steve Lukather, Todd Rundgren and more. Tickets start at $75. 8pm.
- Jay-Z with Vic Mensa at Toyota Center | Wednesday, November 8 – After dropping his thirteenth studio album on unsuspecting fans, Jay-Z has aimed to retake his throne with a mature, and deeply personal take on “4:44”. The accompanying tour takes him through 35 dates in North America and the 21-time Grammy Award-winner will be stopping by Beyonce’s hometown in early November. Tickets range from $40 to $200 but you may find cheaper or better seats on TicketNetwork’s online network. 8pm.
- The Jesus and Mary Chain at White Oak Music Hall | Wednesday, November 8 – Since reuniting in 2007, the Scottish post-punk band from the ’80s has toured the world over, including a stop at Houston’s Day For Night festival last year. With a fresh album for the first time in nineteen years, titled “Damage and Joy”, the group pick up where they left off. Tickets are $30, not including ticket fees, but you might find cheaper tickets on the TicketNetwork marketplace. 7pm.
- Guns N’ Roses at Toyota Center | Friday, November 10 – There was a time when a reunion of one of the most legendary rock bands felt impossible but here we are. In their ironically named “Not In This Lifetime” Tour, the group have resumed their powerhouse ways, delivering searing Slash solos and vocal theatrics from leadman Axl Rose. Tickets start at $59 but cheaper, hard-to-find seats might be available on the TicketNetwork resale market. 7:30pm.
- The Temptations with The Four Tops at Arena Theatre | Saturday, November 11 – With over five decades of hits between them, these two world-renown Motown groups return to Houston’s Arena Theatre, promising a show packed with smash hit performances including “My Girl,” “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone,” and “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I’ve Got).” Tickets for these soul legends begin at $39.50, though you might be able to spot better, cheaper seats using the TicketNetwork online marketplace. 8:30pm.
- The Shins at House of Blues | Saturday, November 11 – In March, The Shins released “Heartworms,” a self-produced album stripped away from the original lineup and crafted almost entirely by leadman James Mercer. It was an attempt to echo the familiar aesthetic of earlier Shins material and, judging by the outcome, Mercer can still create nervy, catchy songs that will reverberate in your head for days. Tickets range from $45 to $65, but TicketNetwork’s online marketplace might offer better ticket options. 7pm.
- Enrique Iglesias with Pitbull at Toyota Center | Thursday, November 16 – After rescheduling a series of southern dates following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the joint concert bringing Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull to Houston is back on for mid-November. The duo guarantee a night of dance hits, club bangers, and sultry ballads. Tickets range from $40 to $220, but you might secure cheaper, hard-to-find seats on the TicketNetwork resale market. 7:30pm.
- alt-J with Marian Hill at White Oak Music Hall | Friday, November 17 – The English trio swing through Houston for a night of chill, rhythmic soundscapes, rounded vocal harmonies, and accompanied by well-choreographed light shows. Tickets for the outdoor show start at $51.50, but TicketNetwork’s online marketplace might offer better, cheaper tickets. 7pm.
