Love Never Dies

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8-10:30 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29

The year is 1907. It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love – Christine Daaé. Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul.

Imagine Dragons

Thu., Oct. 19, 7:30 p.m.

It didn’t take long for Las Vegas pop-rockers Imagine Dragons to reach the top. Only four years separated their conception and their smash hit “Radioactive” from debut record Night Visions (which managed to reach gold and platinum status in 22 countries). Their immediate success was not a cue to sit quiet, but rather to release two more records that have done nothing but dominate the airwaves. Having crafted a career on songs suited for an action movie scene where the protagonist realizes they have to do something about the impending robot attack/massive storm/intergalactic battle/what have you, it’s hard to imagine these Dragons are going anywhere but up.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-6611;; Tickets start at $49.50. $49.50

Ghostface Killah

Thu., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

If you’re going to sling the term O.G. you better be referring to Wu Tang Clan wunderkind and solo superstar Ghostface Killah. One of the few survivors from the birthing grounds of modern rap, Ghostface is keeping the spirit alive with an unmatched tenacity. Known for his slow and loud style of storytelling, Ghostface isn’t just a rapper — he’s a master collaborator and hell, he’s even popped up in a few films.

Doors open at 8 p.m.; 4114 Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-436-1793;; Tickets are $30. $30

Patti LaBelle

Thu., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

Few legends are as unstoppable as 73-year-old R&B icon Patti LaBelle. LaBelle and her silky soprano have been lending themselves to creating sensual baby-making music for more than half a century. But R&B isn’t her only bag. The iconic disco track “Lady Marmalade” released in 1974 stretched LaBelle’s reach to radio dance stardom. And she didn’t stop there. LaBelle became the unofficial queen of gospel, too, and over time has garnered dozens of Lifetime Achievement awards, and her name hangs in just about every hall of fame you can think of. Time has been kind to this legend and we’d bet you’d feel pretty guilty about not seeing for yourself. Doors open at 8 p.m.; 2901 Grand River Ave., Detroit; 313-309-4700;; Tickets start at $78. $82-$100

Emo Nite LA

Thu., Oct. 19, 9 p.m.

Regardless of the questionable fashion that characterized the genre during the height of its popularity, emo music has sort of stood the test of time. The Magic Stick will play host to Emo Nite LA, a California-based group that throws parties where the soundtrack is strictly made up of your favorite New Found Glory, Taking Back Sunday, and Jimmy Eat World songs (and more). Emo-ish acts like Modest Mouse and Drive-By Truckers have performed at the iconic venue, and in 2008 Rolling Stone magazine called it one of the best places in America to see live music. So, it's likely you spent the best Friday night of your teenage life seeing your favorite emo band there the first time around.

Doors open at 9 p.m.; 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-9700;; Tickets are $10. $10

Matt Wertz

Thu., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

A self-made singer/songwriter, Matt Wertz spent years creating soulful, feel-good pop music on his own terms. But "I realized I'd been making records in a similar way in the same geographic area (of Nashville)," Wertz admits, "and I wanted to get away from that comfort zone. I personally was needing a fresh approach — to pull the clip on the grenade and blow things up and start over. I'm a fan of current pop music, and L.A. is very much about what's happening now. I wanted to see how my music fit into that space." Filled with left-field love songs about guarding yourself, opening your heart to new possibilities, and wrestling with the sacrifice and vulnerability that love requires of everyone, Matt's latest album "Gun Shy" finds Wertz urging his listeners—and, perhaps, himself—to continue taking leaps. It's an album about stepping into unfamiliar situations, armed with the courage to fail and the drive to succeed. More than a decade into a career filled with commercial success and touring milestones, Matt Wertz remains proud to be an independent singer/songwriter. But don't mistake Gun Shy for the sort of intimate album you'd hear at your local coffee shop. These are not acoustic guitar songs. They're songs built on laptops and driven forward by dance beats. Songs that move you physically and emotionally. Songs that splash Wertz's super-sized hooks across the backdrop of the Los Angeles skyline, creating their own brand of scenery along the way. Multi-instrumentalist virtuoso Dustin Ransom opens. $25
