American Idol Live! 

When: Sun., July 19, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $40-$65
The senescence of American Idol, which closes up shop after next year’s coronation, has had some ripple effects, including the slimming down of its annual tour. The show now only showcases the top five instead of the top 10, though it still storms through the past and present pop canon with impressive breadth. (Paramore, Ray Charles and Jonny Lang were all covered at the tour opener.) This year’s winner is Nick Fradiani, an affable Connecticut native whose take on blue-eyed soul has a Jason Mraz jangle. He is the nominal headliner, and he even throws a tune by his pre-Idol band into his set. —Maura Johnston
