Are you one of those who is addicted to live music? Do you love the thought of being able to see your favorite artist in person as they command the stage, singing each of your favorite hits? You’re not alone, and lucky for you, concerts featuring some big names are among the things to do in Orange County this November. Here are the shows that have us the most excited.
The rapper known as Immortal Technique has never reached the heights of a Nas or a Jay Z, and there’s a reason for it. It’s not because he’s less talented, or less motivated. It’s because he’s more controversial. Although he has rejected the label of a “political rapper,” Immortal Technique has some strong opinions about the political landscape, and he’s not afraid to express them. He also has a blistering, tongue-twisting rap style that decimates most other MCs. If you’re trying to find things to do in Orange County, head to the Observatory in Santa Ana on Thursday, November 15th. Every time Immortal Technique grabs the mic, you’d better pay attention. The man is a preacher, and every stage that he graces becomes his pulpit.
A Perfect Circle
A Perfect Circle is known for their moody alternative rock, and their live performances are legendary. This supergroup, fronted by Maynard James Keenan (better known as simply Maynard) and Billy Howerdel is touring in support of their latest album, Eat the Elephant. Maynard also fronts the band Tool, and there are some similarities between the two groups, though ultimately, A Perfect Circle’s sound is their own. They will take the stage at the Honda Center on Saturday, November 17th. Grab your tickets now, as they are sure to go fast.
Justin Timberlake has become quite a renaissance man. He’s an actor, an ultra-talented musician, and he’s still got those dance moves that make the heart skip a beat. On November 20th he brings his Man of the Woods Tour to Anaheim. You can see him at the Honda Center, and tickets are on sale now. He’ll be performing his newest songs along with some top favorites from his catalog that has only grown deeper with each passing year. It’s rare to find a performer that has meant so much to so many and is known on the world stage, but you need to see him live to truly appreciate his talents.
