25 Best Concerts to See in Phoenix in August

We're officially hip deep into the time of year that's officially know as the dog days of summer, which -- if you're not familiar with the term -- refers to the most sweltering period of the season.

But while the weather might be keeping your ass glued to the couch, it's not stopping chart-topping touring bands and legendary acts from coming to the Valley in August. That's because the weather's quite lovely inside the air-conditioned bliss of Metro Phoenix's arenas, concert halls, and music venues, so if mega-stars like Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, and Interpol get all sweaty during their upcoming shows this month, its due to their performance theatrics.
