  • J. Cole brings his latest album Forest Hills Drive to Indy in August.

1. Esperanza Spalding

June 18, 7:30 p.m. It’s a great fit for bass virtuoso Spalding to take the Palladium’s beautiful stage.

Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts (Carmel), prices vary, all-ages

2. Fall Out Boy, Wiz Khalifa, Hoodie Allen

July 1, 7 p.m. This headscratcher of a bill actually makes a ton of sense when you think about it: Wiz rules at picking great pop tracks to rap over; Fall Out Boy is slowly becoming a straight electro pop act. Somewhere they’ll meet in the middle and make a joint album.

Klipsch Music Center, 12880 E. 146th St., $25-265, all-ages

3. The Rolling Stones

July 4, 1 p.m. gates, 8 p.m. show. KEITH. MICK. CHARLIE. RONNIE. They’re coming to the Speedway for an explosive (and expensive) jaunt at the Speedway on the Fourth of July, fireworks and all. This is a Sticky Fingers album tour, so expect “Wild Horse,” “Brown Sugar,” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” onstage.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, 4790 W. 16th St., prices vary, all-ages

4. J. Cole, Big Sean, YG, Jeremih

July 26, 6:30 p.m. The No. 1 hip-hop concert of summer 2015. If you’ve only got the cash for one show, make it this one. J. Cole and Big Sean both released albums earlier this year, Cole’s Forest Hills Drive and Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise. Both albums are must listens and worth several replays. They’ll stop by Klipsch on the Forest Hills Drive Tour with special guests YG and Jeremih.

Klipsch Music Center, 12880 E. 146th St., prices vary, all-ages

5. Foo Fighters

Aug. 27, 7 p.m. We worship at the altar of Grohl.
