Ozzy Osbourne: In March, Black Sabbath announced that it had officially disbanded. But Osbourne isn’t the retiring type. At 68, he’s back on the road with his solo act, reuniting with guitarist Zakk Wylde, his on-again, off-again partner since 1987 (but it’s been eight years since they toured together). At the Sabbath farewell show in St. Paul last year, Ozzy sounded diminished in voice but not spirit. Expect a mix of solo favorites like “Crazy Train” and “Bark at the Moon” and Sabbath classics like “Iron Man” and “Paranoid.” (8 p.m. Fri. Treasure Island Casino Amphitheater, Red Wing, $25-$65.)

Rock for Pussy (David Bowie tribute): Revived last year in the wake of the Thin White Duke's death, this formerly annual tribute to David Bowie was already a beloved (and charitable) affair featuring an all-star crew of Twin Cities club veterans led by John Eller and including members of the Suburbs and Honeydogs. Guest singers this year will include Har Mar Superstar, Chan Poling, PaviElle, Prairie Fire Lady Choir, Venus DeMars and many more. Proceeds go to Feline Rescue; hence the event's name. (9 p.m. Fri., First Avenue, $16-$18, eTix.com.)

Pizza Lucé Block Party: Consistently among the best of Minneapolis’ many free outdoor music bashes, this year’s Lucé lineup welcomes the return of Hold Steady frontman and punk-rock storyteller Craig Finn, who’s touring behind his third solo album, the harried but hopeful “We All Want the Same Things.” He will be joined by jittery, jolting rap star Allan Kingdom of the Stand4rd and Kanye’s “All Day” fame, indie-rock mainstay Haley (Bonar), Grrrl Prty and Chalice castaway Sophia Eris, Fury Things, Tabah, Static Panic, Fanaka and Modern Era. (Noon-10 p.m. Sat., 5th St. & 1st Av. N., Mpls,, all ages, free.)

Summer Set: The opening of the new St. Croix Crossing bridge puts this sixth annual psychedelic, groove-driven camp-out all that closer to Twin Cities fans. It may not have the huge EDM names of the prior two years, but it does have one of the best live acts in hip-hop right now on Friday, Run the Jewels, and three other electronic acts with more cultish followings for headliners: Zeds Dead (Fri.), Zedd (Sat., no relation) and Griz (Sun.). Schlocky South African techno-rap duo Die Antwoord also gets to make up its storm-cancelled 2015 set (Sat.). The rest of the fray includes Post Malone, Zomboy, RL Grime, Playboi Carti, Datsik, Seven Lions, Louis the Child and dozens more. (2 p.m. Fri.-Sun., Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, Wis., $75/day, $209-plus/camping, summersetfestival.com.)

Rodney Crowell: The one-time country star-turned-Americana hero has made a string of outstanding albums in this century. This year’s “Close Ties,” his ninth effort since 2001, is another triumph, with a wise man looking back on his wilder days, including “Nashville 1972” about his early years in Music City. (7 p.m. Fri. Dakota, $40-$50)

Ohio Players: The 1970s funksters behind the hits “Love Rollercoaster” and “Fire” still claim four heyday members: drummer Diamond Williams, keyboardist Billy Beck, guitarist Clarence Willis and percussionist Robert Kuumba. (7:30 p.m. Fri. Ordway, $26-$110)

Coldplay: Coldplay has been more consistent in staging exciting live spectacles than in recording great albums. Remember anything much from 2015’s “A Head Full of Dreams”? At least the Super Bowl halftime performers can rely on 16 years of favorites including “Yellow” and “Clocks” — plus the current Chainsmokers hit “Something Just Like This” featuring Coldplay frontman Chris Martin —and plenty of bells-and-whistles for their first stadium show in the Twin Cities. (7 p.m. Sat. U.S. Bank Stadium, $27.50-$285.75, ticketmaster.com)

Nicole Atkins: Now relocated to Nashville, the New Jersey singer-songwriter is deliciously retro on her fourth album, this year’s “Goodnight Rhonda Lee.” Maybe it’s a bit of an alter ego or just some reexamination of her life. Working with Leon Bridges’ producers, Atkins has delivered a versatilely vintage winner, especially the noir ballad “A Little Crazy” cowritten with Chris Isaak. (7 p.m. Sat. Dakota, $25-$30)

Irv Williams: The still vital Twin Cities saxophonist turns 98. Last year, Mr. Smooth played two full sets with his jazz combo on his birthday. Celebrate a Minnesota music treasure. (7 p.m. Sun. Dakota, $15.)

Ruthie Foster: After splitting with her longtime partner, this rich-voiced, spiritually-inclined Texan has rebounded with this year’s versatile “Joy Comes Back.” It’s mostly covers, including vintage blues (Mississippi John Hurt’s “Richland Woman Blues”), current country (Chris Stapleton’s “What Are You Listening To?) and a surprising rock classic (the surprisingly solid “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath). Foster knows how to cope. (7 p.m. Mon.-Tue. Dakota, $35-$45.)

Jeremy Ylvisaker: The ubiquitous and quite incomparable Minneapolis guitarist — known from the Suburbs, Gramma’s Boyfriend, Alpha Consumer, Andrew Bird’s band and lots more — is pairing up with JT Bates and his Jazz Implosion friends to promote two distinct instrumental albums for the Totally Gross National Product label, the all-acoustic “Malibu Hymnal” and the electrified and experimental “Dimebag.” (9:30 p.m. Mon., Icehouse, $10.)

Shakey Graves: Two things you should know about the Americana artist from Texas — he had a recurring role in the TV series “Friday Night Lights” (you probably knew that) and he went to school with Gary Clark Jr. (you probably didn’t know that). He’s graduated from his one-man band bit but still favors alt-country with folk instincts. (8 p.m. Tue. First Avenue, sold out.)

Belle & Sebastian: Until the Smiths finally reunite, this cult-adored Scottish band’s concerts will remain the biggest show around for lovers of brooding, bookish, brokenhearted U.K. indie pop. Stuart Murdoch and his crew were last seen at Rock the Garden in 2015 and have only put out one single since then, “We Were Beautiful,” the upside of which is they’ve been playing songs from throughout their 21-year discography at recent shows. (8 p.m. Tue., Palace Theatre, $40-$45)

Logic: The Maryland rapper is teetering on Top 40 pop hitmaker status with his new anti-suicide song “1-800-273-8255,” featuring guests Alessia Cara and Khalid, from his second Def Jam album “Everybody.” He’s touring with Brooklyn’s aptly named and highly entertaining Joey Bada$$. (7:30 p.m. Wed., Roy Wilkins Auditorium, $29.50.)

Beck: When he lands in St. Paul for his first Twin Cities appearance in nine years, maybe Beck will explain what’s happening with his first album in three years. It was due last year. Then this year. And now who knows when. He has dropped a couple of new songs recently. His last effort, the super-mellow “Morning Phase,” unexpectedly won the Grammy winner for best album. The L.A. musical collagist who gave us “Odelay” and “Mutations” is unpredictable but always capable of greatness. (7:30 p.m. Thu. Palace Theater, sold out.)

Max Weinberg: With three weeks off from his tour with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the drummer brings a new interactive concept to an intimate club: Max Weinberg’s Jukebox, wherein the audiences shouts out requests (from a list of more than 200 tunes) and he and his quartet will accommodate the fans’ wishes. (7 p.m. Thu. Dakota, $45-$65)
