​The details of this year's Arizona Fall Frenzy were revealed last week, showcasing an impressive lineup for the event's second year. Devo, Stone Temple Pilots, The Cult, Primus and Weezer round out a variegated lineup that shows much more promise than 2009's version. Fall Frenzy helps lead the way for a slim week of concert announcements that also includes Cheap Trick, The Maine, Natalie Merchant and Gladys Knight

Also in this group is the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Tour which includes Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour. That particular event will take place the day after Fall Frenzy, showcasing how some astute planning can help you avoid setting up an outdoor stage an extra time.
