10 music shows to see this summer

Last chance. Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters builds “The Wall” outdoors as the epic two-year tour (which played the United Center in 2010) winds down this summer. Alas, his Floyd bandmates won’t be with him to replicate one of the landmark albums of the progressive era.

June 8, Wrigley Field, 1060 W. Addison St. $35-$250; ()
The U.K. quintet once again is tasked with adapting a heavily electronic album (the 2011 release “King of Limbs”) to a live, rock-combo setting. Word is they’re doing a pretty good job of it. Who can forget how they transformed “Kid A” on tour a decade ago?

June 10, First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, 19100 Ridgeland Road, Tinley Park. $50- $85; ()
This two-day event is shaping up as one of the largest electronic dance music festivals in Chicago history, headlined by some of the world’s top DJs, including Skrillex, Afrojax, Flux Pavilion, Benny Benassi, A-Trak, Moby, Carl Cox and dozens more.

June 16-17, Soldier Field, 1410 S. Museum Campus Drive. $119.99 for a two-day pass; ()
The New York MC/producer El-P is out with the hard-hitting “Cancer 4 Cure.” OutKast protege Killer Mike counters with the El-P-produced “R.A.P. Music.” You won’t see a better hip-hop double bill this year.

July 6, Bottom Lounge, 1375 W. Lake St., $21;i ()
Baseball, fireworks and a revered rock band -- a quintessential summer package. The Chicago sextet will play a triple-header at the home of the Kane County Cougars, with warm-up sets from Andrew Bird and the soul-music octet the Congregation.

July 8, Fifth Third Bank Ballpark, 34W002 Cherry Lane, Geneva. $50; ()
The seventh annual gathering of the indie tribes will be headlined by Feist, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Vampire Weekend, with much-anticipated sets by Wild Flag, Danny Brown, Willis Earl Beal, Big K.R.I.T and the Olivia Tremor Control, among dozens of others.

July 13-15, Union Park, Ashland Boulevard and Ogden Avenue. $45 each day; ()
Onika Tanya Maraj turns her every song into a piece of theater -- complete with its own outfit, hairstyle and persona -- so expect the spectacle setting to be on “11" for this tour.

July 16, Chicago Theatre. 175 N. State St., $45 and $75; ()
Veteran rock acts (Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and electronic dance music (Avicii, Justice) go toe-to-toe at the eighth annual festival. Jack White and the Black Keys round out the headliners, with Florence + the Machine, the Shins and Alabama Shakes among the must-sees on the undercard.

After the death of longtime saxophonist Clarence Clemons last year, Springsteen has retooled and expanded his vaunted E Street Band to showcase the politically direct songs from his latest album, “Wrecking Ball.”

Sept. 7-8, Wrigley Field, $45-$103; ()
For the first time the annual punk festival expands outdoors for two days in Humboldt Park (opening night will be indoors at the Congress Theatre), and the lineup has some of its heaviest hitters yet, including Iggy and the Stooges, Elvis Costello, Rise Against, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Built to Spill, Fishbone, Screaming Females, the Descendents, the Offspring, Alkaline Trio and more.
