It is concert season in Fresno

I love concerts. Unfortunately, many of the big (and middle sized) names don't stop in Fresno. But those that do, usually stop by in the Fall. At least, that's what I've noticed. We get a sprinkling of concerts from January to August, and then it pours for the rest of the year. Of course, the Fresno fair helps in that regard.

Here are some of the big (and middle sized) names of note coming to the Fresno area.

This list is not all inclusive, just the names I would enjoy. I will update the list as needed.
