From hard rock to electro-pop, package tours are increasingly viable additions to solo jaunts, since major-label touring musicians are seeing bigger returns from live shows than album sales these days. That's also true for hip-hop, which is part of why the "America's Most Wanted Music Festival," which features Lil Wayne, T.I., 2 Chainz, G-Eazy and Hit Boy, exists. Tickets for the Aug. 23 show at Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($23.75-$144.75, Ticketmaster)

John Fogerty's high-charting, critically acclaimed new album "Wrote a Song for Everyone" shows the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman still has chooglin' good times on his mind. Tickets for his Oct. 15 concert at the Fillmore Auditorium are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($49.50, livenation.com)

Neko Case hasn't even released her new album, "The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You" (slated for Sept. 3), and already critics are lining up to declare it one of the best of the year. That should make the clarion-voiced indie singer's Sept. 14 show at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, with Pickwick, a must-attend event. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. ($29.95-$55, Ticketmaster)

Nine Inch Nails is back in a big way this fall with a new album, the morbidly titled "Hesitation Marks," and an arena tour that stops by Broomfield's 1stBank Center on Nov. 13. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. ($39.95-$95, TicketHorse)

Bonobo's audience-building prowess is impressive, since the atmospheric British DJ has doubled venue sizes in Denver over the past few years. Tickets for Bonobo's Nov. 1 show at the Fillmore are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($25-$30, livenation.com)

Oh, great: We finally got Phillip Phillips' irritatingly ubiquitous pop-single "Home" out of our heads, and now the "American Idol" champ has gone and announced a national headlining tour. Can you blame him for striking while the iron's hot? Tickets for Phillips' Aug. 1 concert at the Fillmore are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($25-$30, livenation.com)

Jimmy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band could hardly want for a wider, more accepting audience in the boozy, stoned Colorado concert scene, considering that Parrotheads are generally comprised of college partiers, jam-band-loving types and aging Baby Boomers. Tickets for Buffet's "Songs from St. Somewhere" tour stop at the Pepsi Center on Oct. 22 are on sale at 10 a.m. Monday. ($39.95-$139, TicketHorse)
