June 1 KRAFTWERK Victims of the eventual success of the electronica they created three decades ago, Ralf, Florian, and friends can easily rest on their laurels (as they have for a while now). If all they have are modest updates and refinements on their old formula to offer, that's good enough. After all, their most appealing concept was always about minimalism. GROSS

June 10 LEGENDS OF MOTOR CITY: SPINNERS, TEMPTATIONS, MARTHA REEVES'S VANDELLAS

August 10 DEVO Cynics can sneer about how their ironic take on consumer culture turned into soundtracks for commercials but these smarty-pants Midwesterners did manage to define the '80s even before that decade began. After becoming heroes of the grunge set and VH1, their status seems assured—maybe not mythic but perhaps iconic and definitely change-of-pace material for any respectable dance mixtape. GROSS

July 14 WYCLEF JEAN+DAARA J (Avery Fisher Hall) Smart booking, this coming together of eclectics from two Francophone outposts of the African diaspora. Haitian American mixmaster Clef's latest CD, Haiti 101, updates racine fusion past corniness to beyond hip. Fiercely talented Daara J, ruler of Senegal's teeming hip-hop scene, brings Jamaican and U.S. beats back home and back 'round the world again. OUMANO

June 22 OASIS+JET Now that nimble, stylish young Turks like Franz Ferdinand and the Kaiser Chiefs have usurped their place in the current Britpop firmament, Oasis are free to roam the land as an arena-filling greatest-hits machine. Of course, they have a new album, which from early indications promises to reek of champagne and desperation. But, oh, those greatest hits. Openers Jet went supernova while no one was watching.

June 4 DON HENLEY+STEVIE NICKS It's the "Leather and Lace" tour, only 25 years late. Don Henley and Stevie Nicks have each had successful solo spin-offs from hit '70s rock bands (Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles). On the double headliner tour, they'll cover solo hits, band favorites, and will up for several duets. GEMELLI

June 10 JUDAS PRIEST It's old news, but yes, out-of-the-closet, loud 'n' proud wailing banshee Rob Halford has returned to the fold to one of the most ferocious and copied beasts in the metal kingdom. They wiped the floor at Ozzfest last summer, and though the comeback record, Angel of Retribution (Sony), is a so-so slab of classic good and bad Priest, live is where they've always been the truest sentinels. With Queensrÿche. BOSLER

June 25 JAMES TAYLOR

July 26 'OZZFEST 2005' Hangin' in the confines of sweaty, moshing teenagers blows, but this year's fest is worth the health hazard: Iron Maiden (playing tunes from the first four CDs only, their best work!) share headlining ranks with Black Sabbath. The real juice is the second stage: Monster movie showman Rob Zombie headlines atop serious representation from the Swedes—Arch Enemy (ex-Carcass), the Haunted (ex-At the Gates), and In Flames; with U.S. underground leviathans Mastodon and Killswitch Engage.

Go this year for My Chemical Romance, screamo's brightest lights, and Transplants, featuring Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong and new MTV reality star Travis Barker. Stay for Boston's indefatigable Dropkick Murphys and Beerzone, which is a band in addition to a state of mind. WOOD
