DIXIE CHICKS It’s been 13 years since this chart-topping country-crossover trio landed in hot water for giving President Bush the stink eye on stage, and to judge by reports of a defaced Donald Trump banner in use during the group’s first North American tour in more than a decade, the Chicks still aren’t ready to make nice. June 14, 7 p.m. $43.50- $153.50. Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 800-745-3000, www.livenation .com

ELLIE GOULDING Initially vaunted for her idiosyncratic sophistication, British singer Goulding mainsteamed her sound on her latest album, “Delirium.”cq Still, her independent streak should shine in concert, especially following in the wake of her opening act, ebullient alt-pop duo Matt and Kim. June 15, 7:30 p.m. $25-$55. TD Garden. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

JAM’N 94.5 SUMMER JAM + KISS 108 CONCERT These popular smorgasbords offer a range of current hitmakers catering to diverse tastes. Fetty Wap, Ty Dolla Sign, and Kevin Gates are among the big names at Summer Jam; Halsey, Charlie Puth, the Chainsmokers, and Troye Sivan are KISS Concert standouts. June 16, 6 p.m. $25- $129.50 (Summer Jam); June 18, 3 p.m. $25-$125 (KISS Concert). Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com

AT THE DRIVE IN It’s understandable that some might be skeptical about the reunion of this crucial Texas post-hardcore band, especially after the messy end of its most visible splinter faction, the Mars Volta. But hit YouTube for footage from recent AtDI shows and you see instantly that even with guitarist-singer Jim Ward sitting this one out, the band means business. June 18, 6 p.m. $40-$55. House of Blues. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com
