COYLE — Sofia Talvik, the Swedish “North Sea Siren” of Folk-Americana music, will play a matinee show at Concerts in the Woods in Coyle at 3 p.m. Sunday.
The concert will be at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center at 923 Hazel Point Road in Coyle.
Admission is by donation only; the suggested donation is $20.
Talvik’s music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage but her long 16-month, 37-state tour, through the United States in a RV has moved her music closer to the Americana tradition, organizers said.
Living like a musical nomad, moving from place to place, slowly but steadily building her audience through heartfelt and personal performances, she got to experience the USA in a way few people do, she said, adding that the people she met opened their homes and hearts to her and some of them even made it into her songs.
Talvik’s debut album “Blue Moon” was released in 2005, followed by “Street of Dreams,” which featured a duet with indie pop icon Bernard Butler from British band Suede.
Talvik released her album “Jonestown,” named after the tragic 1978 event in Jonestown, Guyana, 2008, and was the first Swedish female artist to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago that same year.
A veteran performer with nine full-length albums, including the brand-new “Center of the Universe”, as well as numerous EP’s and singles in her discography, Talvik’s U.S. tour wraps up in Arizona on Oct. 15.

Greta Van Fleet is a band that was made to play in arenas.
Since its formation in Frankenmuth just over a decade ago, the Grammy Award-winning quartet’s aesthetic has hit a time-defying sweet spot unifying classic and contemporary rock conventions. GVF is at once throwback and current as fit for Lollapalooza as it would have been for the revered rock ‘n’ roll palaces of the late 60s.
And its music is meant to be played in big spaces — such as Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena on Friday night, Sept. 8.
With a crowd of nearly 14,000 it was GVF’s biggest show to date in its home state — and its first in the metro area since 2018, when it played three shows just down the street at the Fox Theatre. (Nearby concerts slated for Ypsilanti and Flint last year were each canceled, twice.) That sense of occasion was not lost on the band, now based in Nashville; frontman Josh Kiszka, one of GVF’s three brothers, sang a line from John Denver’s “Back Home Again” early in the show, and during the encore he noted that, “I can’t begin to express how absolutely significant tonight is…This town is unparalleled in so many ways.”
During the two-hour and 15-minute show he also recalled the band visiting Kid Rock backstage during his venue-opening run in September of 2017. Kiszka remembered expressing admiration for Rock’s pyrotechnics, at which point he told the fledgling group that, “When you can’t sing, you blow s*** up.”
Although Kiszka demonstrated the Valhallian power of his own pipes throughout Friday’s show. GVF followed Rock’s edict as well; the 14-song set was loaded with copious columns of fire and dramatic explosions. It was Rock Spectacle in capital letters, up to and including frontman Kiszka’s five outfit changes — drawn from the sci-fi/fantasy worlds of Thor’s Asgard and “Stargate’s” Abydos — side ramps that took the band members into the general admission front of the arena floor and an omnipresent (and sometimes distracting) camera drone that flitted around the band as it played.
There was also a second stage at the back of the venue where GVF played a three-song acoustic set that included a partial cover of “Unchained Melody” by just Kiszka with younger brother Sam on piano and a soaring rendition of “Black Smoke Rising” — after which Josh Kiszka returned to the main stage on the shoulders of a security guard, handing flowers to fans as he passed by.
Unapologetically indulgent and at points even excessive (“This is a rock ‘n’ roll show,” Josh Kiszka pronounced before “Highway Tune”), it was a kind of musical communion that the younger fans at Little Caesars — a good many of whom sported glittery GVFalike outfits and carried Pride flags in support of Josh’s recent coming-out — had not yet been experienced and that their older siblings and parents could appreciate from their own youths.
And all concerned certainly appreciated the advanced musicianship GVF displayed, which included epic, extended renditions of “Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer)” and “The Archer” led by Jake Kiszka’s guitar heroics, on display during every song and also featured during an extended late-show instrumental improvisation just before “Sacred the Thread.”
Sam Kiszka on bass and keyboards and drummer Danny Wagner had spotlight time, too, and the night’s set list focused on GVF’s latest album, “Starcatcher,” with eight songs. And the first encore, the anthemic “Light My Love,” was a moving display of Pride solidarity as Josh Kiszka wailed the song to the rafters.
“Farewell For Now” brought things to a ferocious close — and likely had the Little Caesars crowd primed for GVF’s next trip back home.

By any measure, it was a blockbuster summer for arena and stadium concerts, with numerous sold-out shows, skyrocketing ticket prices and new attendance records set by Taylor Swift at U.S. Bank Stadium and Pink at Target Field.
Things are settling down some this fall, but there is still a lineup packed with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and more recent acts like the Jonas Brothers and the 1975.
Listed ticket prices are subject to change and do not include VIP or other premium packages.
Here’s a look at the highlights of the biggest Twin Cities concerts.
Sept. 14: Eric Clapton, the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will play his first local concert in 14 years with blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan as his opening act. Clapton began performing as a teenager. In 1963, he joined the Yardbirds, a British band that played Chicago-style blues. He left the group two years later, after their single “For Your Love” became a chart success. He then joined the power trio Cream and then Blind Faith with Steve Winwood, with whom he shared the stage when he last played the X in June 2009. After joining yet another band, Derek and the Dominos, Clapton embarked on a solo career that earned him 18 Grammy Awards and second place, behind Jimi Hendrix, on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time list. In recent years, Clapton has earned headlines as an outspoken anti-vaxxer, going so far as to release a pair of singles with Van Morrison about the subject, “Stand and Deliver” and “This Has Gotta Stop.” 7:30 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $346-$46; xcelenergycenter.com.
Sept. 15: Rapper/actor/entrepreneur Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his multi-platinum debut album “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” with an extensive world tour. Raised by his grandparents, Jackson boxed and sold drugs as a teenager. His 1994 arrest inspired his stage name, a metaphor for change. Two years later, he met Run-DMC’s Jam Master Jay, who taught him how to write songs. He landed a deal with Columbia Records and recorded the album “Power of the Dollar.” But after Jackson was attacked and shot nine times outside his grandmother’s home in 2000, the label dropped Jackson and left the record unreleased. Once he recovered from his wounds, he released the mixtape “Guess Who’s Back,” which got noticed by Eminem, who helped him land a new major label deal. Jackson’s official debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” became a worldwide smash and launched a series of hits including “In Da Club,” “21 Questions” and “P.I.M.P.” Jackson has spent most of his time in the last dozen years focused on numerous non-musical pursuits, including television and film production, footwear, apparel, fragrances, liquor, video games and book publishing. Busta Rhymes and Jeremih open. 7 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $124.50-$54.50; xcelenergycenter.com.
Oct. 3: Peter Gabriel rose to prominence in the ’70s as the lead singer of the prog-rock band Genesis and earned a reputation as a showman thanks to his elaborate on-stage costumes and theatrics. During the tour for the group’s sixth album, 1974’s “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway,” Gabriel announced he was leaving Genesis. He re-emerged in 1977 with his self-titled solo debut, the first of four consecutive albums without a proper title. His early hits include “Solsbury Hill,” “Games Without Frontiers” and “Shock the Monkey,” his first to make the Top 40 in America. In 1986, he released “So,” the most commercially successful album of his career. Thanks in part to heavy play for his videos on MTV, “So” topped the charts and produced the singles “Sledgehammer,” “In Your Eyes,” “Big Time” and the Kate Bush duet “Don’t Give Up.” After spending a year on the road in support of “So,” Gabriel has taken a much more leisurely approach to his career. He has since released a pair of new studio efforts in 1992 and 2003, a 2010 covers album, a 2011 collection of orchestral re-recordings and several soundtracks. Gabriel’s impending new album “i/o” was initially planned for release in 2004 and, a year later, he told Rolling Stone he had a pool of 150 songs in various stages of completion. There’s no word when “i/o” will come out, but Gabriel has been releasing a new single on the full moon of each month this year. 7 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $300-$65; xcelenergycenter.com.
Oct. 14: A native of rural Georgia, Luke Bryan moved to Nashville after graduating from Georgia Southern University in 1999. He found his first success as a songwriter, penning hits for Travis Tritt and Billy Currington. That led to a recording deal with Capitol Nashville and a gold-selling debut single, “All My Friends Say,” in 2007. But Bryan’s career really took off with 2009’s “Do I.” In the time since, 25 of the 29 singles he has released landed in the Top 5, with 10 hitting No. 1. Bryan has been named Entertainer of the Year five times combined from the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Association. Locally, Bryan claims a large audience. In 2015, he played TCF Bank Stadium and was the first musical act to headline U.S. Bank Stadium the following year. Bryan became the first artist to headline all three stadiums in the metro in 2018 when he played Target Field. Combined, those three concerts drew a total of nearly 125,000 fans. Chayce Beckham, Conner Smith, Hailey Whitters and DJ Rock are also on the bill. 7 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $194.50-$164.50; xcelenergycenter.com.
Oct. 26: British pop band the 1975 are making their local arena debut. Lead singer Matty Healy and his bandmates first performed together while they were teenagers, with Healy citing Talking Heads, My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Michael Jackson as musical influences. The band’s 2013 self-titled debut topped the charts in England and went platinum in the States. Each one of the 1975’s subsequent five albums hit No. 1 in England and the Top 10 here. Their biggest hits include “Chocolate,” “Love Me,” “Somebody Else,” “Love It If We Made It,” “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You)” and “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know).” The 1975 is known for heavy touring and the band has played the Twin Cities eight times, including pairs of gigs at St. Paul’s Roy Wilkins Auditorium and the Armory in downtown Minneapolis. Their current world tour has sold more than 500,000 tickets across four continents. 7:30 p.m.; Target Center, 600 First Ave. N., Mpls.; $109-$39; 888-929-7849 or targetcenter.com.
Queen + Adam Lambert
Oct. 27-28: After Queen’s vocalist Freddie Mercury died in 1991 from complications of AIDS, surviving members Brian May (guitar), Roger Taylor (drums) and John Deacon (bass) staged a memorial concert at London’s Wembley Stadium in front of a crowd of 72,000 fans. Deacon retired from the group soon after, but May and Taylor kept Queen going through various archival record releases, one-off concert appearances with guest vocalists and a 2005 tour with Paul Rodgers up front. Three years later, Queen performed “We Are the Champions” on the season finale of “American Idol” with finalists Kris Allen and Adam Lambert, whose vocals earned plenty of comparisons to Mercury. In 2012, Lambert performed his first full concerts with Queen, which led to a series of world tours. While Queen’s biggest hits — “We Will Rock You,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Under Pressure” among them — have remained staples of rock radio and major sporting events, Queen picked up a new generation of fans with the 2018 film “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which won four Oscars, including best actor for Rami Malek. 8 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $955.35-$279.98; xcelenergycenter.com.
Oct. 31: Tool emerged from Los Angeles in the early ’90s with a dark, brooding and brutal sound as well as an unusually sophisticated visual presentation for the band’s videos and album art. Heavy touring, including Lollapalooza stints in 1992 and 1993, helped the band’s 1993 debut album “Undertow” go gold in five months. That fame allowed Tool to forge their own path in the music industry. They’ve released just five albums in the past three decades. The deluxe version of their most recent one, 2019’s “Fear Inoculum,” came with a full 4-inch HD screen with original video material, a small speaker and 36-page book. In concert, the group does not use live video and lead singer Maynard James Keenan spends most of the show in the shadows at the back of the stage near drummer Danny Carey. They’ve played more than a dozen shows in and around the metro, most recently hitting Target Center in March 2022. 7:30 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $120-$70; xcelenergycenter.com.
Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks
Nov. 10: Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks are sharing the bill for the fall’s sole stadium show. Joel was inspired to pursue music after seeing the Beatles on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” He scored his first hit in 1973 with “Piano Man” and went on to rule radio with a long string of smashes, including “Just the Way You Are,” “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song),” “Only the Good Die Young,” “You May Be Right,” “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me,” “Tell Her About It,” “Uptown Girl,” “Keeping the Faith” and “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” He stopped releasing pop albums after 1993’s “River of Dreams.” Nicks began her solo career in 1981, when Fleetwood Mac was on a hiatus. Her debut album “Bella Donna” spawned the hit duets “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” (with Tom Petty) and “Leather and Lace” (with Don Henley) as well as what became her signature song, “Edge of Seventeen.” Her sophomore record “The Wild Heart” included the single “Stand Back,” which features an uncredited Prince on synthesizer. 6:30 p.m.; U.S. Bank Stadium, 401 Chicago Ave., Mpls.; $349.50-$249.50; usbankstadium.com.
Nov. 13: Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Aerosmith will hit the road this fall for what they’re calling a farewell tour. Formed in Boston in 1970, Aerosmith scored a series of hits that remain radio staples to this day, including “Sweet Emotion,” “Walk This Way” and “Dream On.” But by the 1980s, drug addiction and clashing personalities nearly led to the end of the group. After several members went through rehab, Aerosmith made a stunning comeback, becoming MTV darlings and selling even more records the second time around. Aerosmith’s 2001 album “Just Push Play” failed to live up to its predecessors in terms of sales, as did 2004’s collection of blues covers, “Honkin’ on Bobo.” The group released their 15th and final album, “Music from Another Dimension,” in 2012. In 2015, band members began publicly discussing a final tour and a 2017 European outing was billed as their farewell. More recently, Aerosmith played an extended Las Vegas residency as well as the first Twin Cities Summer Jam in 2019. The Black Crowes open. 7 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $590-$174.95; xcelenergycenter.com.
Nov. 17-18: Classic rockers the Eagles are saying goodbye, yet again, with a farewell tour. One of the biggest bands of the ’70s, the Eagles performed what they said would be their final concerts together in 2015. Band member Glenn Frey died the following year, seemingly putting an end to the group. But in 2017, Don Henley — the sole founding member remaining in the band — hired country star Vince Gill and Frey’s son Deacon to join a new version of the Eagles alongside guitarist Joe Walsh and bassist Timothy B. Schmit. They have since mounted several successful tours with local stops in 2018 and 2021. The group’s 1976 compilation “Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)” and “Hotel California” stand among the best-selling album in history. The Eagles won six Grammy Awards, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2016. Steely Dan opens. 7:30 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; only platinum and VIP tickets available; xcelenergycenter.com.
Nov. 19: Siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick formed the Jonas Brothers in 2005 and rose to fame two years later when they signed a deal with Disney’s Hollywood Records. After making a guest appearance on Miley Cyrus’ Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana,” they hit the road with Cyrus as her opening act. Soon after, they began headlining arenas on their own. After releasing four albums, the trio canceled what was to be their fifth record together and a planned 2013 tour, citing a “deep rift within the band” over “creative differences.” In February 2019, the Jonas Brothers announced they had reunited and released a new single, “Sucker,” which entered the Billboard charts at No. 1. They’ve since released “The Album” and are back on the road for a tour where they’re playing every song from five of their albums. Fans should expect to hear the full show after the JoBros played a truncated version at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand. 7 p.m.; Xcel Energy Center, 175 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $169.95-$44.95; xcelenergycenter.com.

Photographer Danny Clinch co-founded Asbury Park’s Sea Hear Now Festival. Photo: Justin Borucki
Just a few feet from the beach in Asbury Park—an area rich with rock history—the Transparent Clinch Gallery celebrates music icons.
The space displays countless photographs by Danny Clinch, a renowned music photographer who started shooting for SPIN in 1991. It helps that the Toms River native can add a personal touch when customers are browsing images of legends like Eddie Vedder, Tupac Shakur, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Neil Young.
“Every photo there has a story,” Clinch says. “It’s the photograph, but then it’s like, ‘How did that photograph happen? What were the things surrounding it that were of that moment?’”
For example, Clinch shot the cover art for Bruce Springsteen’s 2020 album Letter to You. The two were walking in Central Park when it started to snow, and Clinch immediately broke out his camera, as he often has throughout his career.
Danny Clinch photographed the album cover for Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You during a snowy walk in Central Park.
He did the same in 1992 when high school friend Tim Donnelly invited him to meet Eddie Vedder at Lollapalooza. Donnelly had an interview scheduled with Vedder for the environmental group Surfrider Foundation.
Years later, the three remain friends. In 2021, Vedder’s band Pearl Jam even played at Sea Hear Now—a massive, annual, Asbury-based surf and music festival that Clinch and Donnelly cofounded. Clinch himself joined the band on stage.
Clinch and his Transparent staff have been preparing for this year’s Sea Hear Now Festival, which takes place September 16-17. They’re installing a Sea Hear Now section at his gallery, and curating art for a Transparent pop-up tent.
The tent sells art that festival musicians volunteered to make, and proceeds go to local charities. “That’s always really fun,” Clinch says, “because you discover people that you didn’t realize made art.”
[RELATED: 24 Hours in Asbury Park]
For a building dedicated to still images, Transparent Clinch Gallery features plenty of sound. With a small stage and instruments tucked into a corner, Transparent often hosts small concerts highlighting local bands.
Since Clinch is so cozy with musicians at every level of fame, it’s not unusual for big-name bands to play pop-up shows at the gallery. The Head and the Heart and the Revivalists did that over the summer before a July 9 show at the Stone Pony. The likes of Nathaniel Rateliff, Gary Clark Jr., Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, and the E Street Band’s Max Weinberg have also performed at Transparent.
“I forget that we’re basically there to sell my photography,” Clinch says while recalling how, after that July 9 show, members of the Head and the Heart and the Revivalists returned to the gallery for an impromptu jam session that went past 2 am.
This year’s See Hear Now festival is fronted by the acts including the Killers, Foo Fighters, Weezer, Sheryl Crow and the Beach Boys. It remains to be seen who Clinch will play with this year, but he’s already thankful for a lifetime’s worth of unforgettable memories.

Romania’s famous music festival Untold will hold a new edition next year, and the first passes go on sale this month, the organizers announced.
The first 10,000 passes will be put up for sale at 12:00 on September 12, at a special price. Music fans who register on the festival’s website can buy tickets for EUR 99 plus taxes before the general sale.
Untold is one of the largest music festivals in Romania, attracting fans from all over the world. According to DJ Mag’s Top 100 Festivals poll 2023, the festival in Cluj-Napoca ranks 3rd in Europe and 6th in the world, surpassing other major events with tradition such as Lollapalooza, Sziget, Amsterdam Music Festival, Sunburn, Burning Man, Parookaville, or Mysteryland.
More than 420,000 fans danced at the 2023 edition of Untold on the music of big names such as Imagine Dragons, Bebe Rexha, Ava Max, and French Montana, and famous DJs like David Guetta, Marin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Alok, Steve Aoki, Alesso, Tale of Us, Eric Prydz, and Boris Brejcha. The event also brought over EUR 70 million to the economy of Cluj-Napoca.
Kehlani has signed with Wasserman Music for worldwide representation.
The two-time Grammy nominated R&B singer last released an album in 2022, titled “Blue Water Road” and then embarked on a world tour that featured a series of sold-out two-night stands at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ YouTube Theater and London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
Since her debut mixtape in 2014, Kehlani has racked up over five billion streams and earned over 20 Gold and Platinum RIAA certifications. The singer earned Grammy nods for best urban contemporary album for 2015’s “You Should Be Here” and for best R&B performance for the 2016 single “Distraction.”
Kehlani started her career in music as a member of the short-lived teen group Poplyfe, which made it to fourth place on Season 6 of “America’s Got Talent.” Kehlani split from the group shortly after the show ran, but remained close with host Nick Cannon, who helped buy Kehlani an apartment in L.A. and record her first mixtape in 2014. In the years since, Kehlani has become one of the biggest names in R&B music and has toured around the world, gracing festival stages at Outside Lands, Lollapalooza South America, Tokyo’s Summer Sonic, Pharrell’s Something in the Water and J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival.
In recent years, Kehlani has also dipped her toes into acting, taking on a three-episode guest spot in 2022’s “The L Word: Generation Q” and cameoing as herself in 2023’s “Creed III,” starring Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors.
Kehlani is represented worldwide by Wasserman Music agents Brent Smith and Eli Gelernter.
J-Hope is having another big week on the Billboard charts. The BTS singer and rapper is back in a major way following the re-release of his album Jack in the Box. Fans not only flocked to buy the full set but also the songs featured on it, and all that attention has helped the star conquer several rankings, including one that sees his name splashed all over the tally.
The South Korean musician dominates Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales chart this week. The ranking lists the bestselling songs in America that can be classified as rap. It’s important to note that this tally is different from the Hot Rap Songs chart, which also incorporates streams and radio airplay.
This frame, J-Hope occupies 20% of all the spaces on the short list. That would always be an impressive showing, but it’s especially meaningful considering the fact that J-Hope’s songs aren’t new to the Rap Digital Song Sales chart, as they’ve all spent time on the tally before.
First up from J-Hope on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart is “Future.” The tune returns at No. 6. It previously peaked at No. 5, so it only missed returning to its previously set high point by one spot.
MORE FROM FORBESBTS’s J-Hope Is An Alternative Star, According To The Billboard ChartsBy Hugh McIntyre
A few spots further down at No. 9 comes “Stop.” That cut once climbed to No. 5, and it makes its way back to the top 10 in its second stay on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart.
J-Hope’s last track that’s currently found on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart is “Arson.” That tune has already enjoyed a more impressive tenure on the tally than the two that rank higher than it does this time around. “Arson” once hit No. 1 on the roster, making J-Hope one of a very small number of South Korean musicians to reach the summit on the list. This week, it’s back at No. 10 in its third stint on the ranking.
Impressively, J-Hope’s name also appears on additional charts, not just the Rap Digital Song Sales ranking. Other songs from Jack in the Box have been classified by Billboard as other genres, so they don’t make it onto this list. His tracks are also doing well on the Alternative Digital Song Sales and World Digital Song Sales rankings. At the same time, Jack in the Box hits a new high on the Billboard 200, breaking into the top 10 for the first time.
