Great White
How do you follow a nightclub fire, caused by your pyrotechnics, that killed 100 people, including your own drummer? Why, with a new album and tour, of course! Touring behind this year’s Rising, the veteran hard-rock band will do their best to make fans forget about that horrific 2003 night in Rhode Island. Good luck. Coach House, Aug. 13. $25.

Depeche Mode
Here’s what you need to know about Depeche Mode in concert: Dave Gahan is in really good shape for a man in his late 40s, and he knows it. So expect lots of tight pants, vests with no shirts, shaking his butt and close-ups on the video screens of said butt-shaking. Okay, there will also be plenty of classic tunes from their nearly 30-year career. But the butt close-ups are what you’ll be thinking of during your drive home. Honda Center, Aug. 19. $49-$99.

The Dead Weather
Jack White’s latest project—also featuring Alison Mosshart of the Kills, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age, and Jack Lawrence of the Greenhornes and the Raconteurs—has attracted a massive amount of blogosphere buzz simply by existing. So imagine the novelty of actually seeing them perform! The Glass House, Aug. 27. $30.

Def Leppard, Poison, Cheap Trick
Imagine, if you will, the kind of person who pays $625.50 for the “Poison ‘Nothin But a Good Time’ Package,” including, among other treats, “exclusive velvet-rope side-stage seating during Poison’s performance” and an “official Poison VIP laminate.” Obsessive Rock of Love runner-ups? Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, Aug. 30. $24.75-$625.50.
