Concert season in Western New York looks like one of the best we've seen in many years. There are great shows, events, and concerts all over the Buffalo area, from Southern Ontario to the Greater Rochester area and everything in between.

So far this year, we've already seen the Rick James Musical at Shea's and Drake & J Cole do back-to-back shows at the KeyBank Center. On the way, we still have Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie & Earth, Wind, and Fire, Ice Cube, and countless other shows on the agenda.
