What began as a smattering of concert dates across the calendar is now a full-blown force of music powerhouses and comedians welcomed to our local doorstep. During the month of August there isn’t a week going by without at least one big name coming to town for a performance at Starlight Theatre, Arrowhead Stadium or The Sprint Center, not to mention the talents booked at smaller venues throughout the city. From country to hard rock and everything else in between, August will keep music and comedy lovers in Kansas City attuned to the summer entertainment scene with some noteworthy headliners.
