Selena Gomez
Tue. June 14 | How does a 23-year-old pop singer justify a Revival (Interscope)? First Selena Gomez issued her grown-up sophomore seduction; then she unraveled collateralized debt obligations while playing blackjack with economics guru Richard Thaler in The Big Short. Voila — a star is reborn. DNCE and Bea Miller open at 7:30 p.m. at the Smoothie King Center.

R. Kelly
Sun. June 19 | Originally conceived as a white-album companion to his 2013 release Black Panties, The Buffet (RCA) finds R. Kelly eschewing unmentionables in favor of a potluck backyard party. Two of the courses: "Poetic Sex" and "Sextime." That's our Robert. At 8 p.m. at the Smoothie King Center.
