Got a minute? Use that time to plan out your music week. On Glenn Gamboa’s Music Minute (G2M2 for short), we’ll fill you in on the week’s biggest concerts, show you some must-see videos and let you know about the songs you need to buy. Check it out here at Backstage Pass every Monday morning.
This week, work out the chemistry between Eminem and Rihanna at MetLife Stadium Saturday and Sunday and Kings of Leon at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater Wednesday. (Even though KOL drummer Nathan Followill injured his ribs in a bus accident Saturday night, resulting in the cancellation of Sunday's show in Saratoga Springs, the Jones Beach show is still currently a go. UPDATE: The Jones Beach show, along with all the band's shows until Aug. 28, has been cancelled.)
