Concert Calendar for This Weekend: Gilby Clarke, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Sarah Brightman, Agnostic Front, And More

Categories: This Weekend

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is scheduled to perform on Friday, December 19, at the Celebrity Theatre.


As we get closer and closer to Christmas (just seven days to go), the number of regular concerts tends to dwindles off, and the number of holiday-themed performances increases substantially. Which means, if you're into carols and choral groups, then right now is truly the most wonderful time of the year. But for rock and hip-hop gigs? Eh, not so much.

Still, there are a handful of noteworthy shows happening over the next 48 hours, including a visit to the Valley by the classy classical singer Sarah Brightman (a.k.a. the original Christine from Phantom of the Opera), as well as an appearance by hip-hop heroes Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and former Guns N' Roses axeman Gilby Clarke.

What else is on tap from Friday until Sunday? Here's the skinny:
