JACK AND MEG: The White Stripes are in your neck of the woods.
  • JACK AND MEG: The White Stripes are in your neck of the woods.

WHITE STRIPES

July 31, Snowden Grove Amphitheatre, Southaven, Miss. $30-$35.

It seems like just yesterday that the Detroit duo was making super-minimal garage rock revered by few. Now, of course, they’re arguably the biggest rock band on the planet, and they’ve got a new album, “Icky Thump.” Jack lives in Nashville now, and on the cover of the new record, he and Meg are sporting bedazzled Nudie-style suits. Despite that and the mellowing sounds of Jack’s side project, the Raconteurs, the White Stripes still kick out the jams, albeit in increasingly eclectic fashion. Will they bring the mariachi horns along on tour? You’ll only have to drive around two-and-a-half hours to find out. Southaven is just outside of Memphis in Mississippi, and it’s by far the closest the Stripes will come to Arkansas. Tickets were still available at press time.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

Aug. 6, FedEx Forum, Memphis. $37.50-$125.

Tickets have been on sale since March for Memphis’ new favorite son’s triumphant return, but there are still seats left (the FedEx Forum is huge). Like the White Stripes show, it’ll be by far the closest opportunity you’ll have to see the man who’s transcended his boy-band roots to become the biggest pop star of his generation. The next Michael Jackson? Heresy, you say? Have you seen dude dance? Also, no one has put out a dance-pop album with eight legitimate singles since ’80s Jacko (when he was just a latent wacko).
