COUNTING CROWS & THE WALLFLOWERS The old friends reteam for what should be a good night of roots-based pop and rock tunes. While their collective heydays may have been the ’90s and early ’00s, the Crows have been cranking out consistently strong efforts and the reunited Wallflowers (left) released a solid reunion album in 2012. June 18, 7 p.m. Bank of America Pavilion. Tickets: $36-$66. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com

KINGS OF THE MIC: LL COOL J, ICE CUBE, PUBLIC ENEMY & DE LA SOUL Talk about bang for your buck. This lineup of hip-hop all-stars should lift you 3 feet high and rising, bring the noise, assure a good day, and remind you of when you couldn’t live without your radio. “NCIS: Los Angeles” star LL Cool J has a new album, “Authentic.” June 19, 6:30 p.m. Tickets: $30-$94. Bank of America Pavilion. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com

June 21, 7 p.m. Tickets: $35-49.50. House of Blues. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com
