B.B. King is scheduled to perform on Saturday at the Celebrity Theatre.

What do ’80s pop-rockers Hall and Oates, the hip-hoppers of Three 6 Mafia, and the metalheads of Whitechapel all have in common?

Here’s all the details on their gigs (as well as info on the other concerts and major music events happening over the next 72 hours from tonight until Sunday):
