Got music on the mind? We do, too. Here are some of the biggest music-related events happening in 2014.
George Strait, Jan. 17.
A group of sold-out shows at CenturyLink Center Omaha begins with country legend George Strait’s farewell stop in Omaha.
Grammy Awards, Jan. 26.
The past year of music will be honored on “music’s biggest night.” Songwriter and Omaha native Paul Williams is nominated for his work on Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories.”
Luke Bryan, Feb. 8.
Bryan was honored with the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year award, one of the biggest awards in country, and the “Rain is a Good Thing” singer will play a sold-out CenturyLink Center.
Justin Timberlake, Feb. 10.
The 20/20 Experience comes directly to Omaha when Timberlake arrives in Omaha for the first time since 2007. (That’s shortly after he released “FutureSex/LoveSounds” and before he quietly began to show up in films.)
Miley Cyrus, March 6.
She’s gonna twerk onstage. You just know it. What we’re not sure of is whether we’ll only hear modern Miley masterpieces, such as “Wrecking Ball,” or if she’ll dip into Hannah Montana material and sugary pop, such as “Party in the USA.”
Demi Lovato, March 16.
Between her self-titled album, a spot as a judge on “X Factor” and a song in the film “Frozen,” Miley’s fellow Disney pop princess is having a good time.
Lady Antebellum, March 27.
The country trio had to reschedule its late 2013 date, but fans are happy to have them back to the CenturyLink Center.
Neutral Milk Hotel, March 29.
Excitement was so high for this reunited indie rock band that tickets for their Sokol Auditorium gig sold out very quickly. We’re hoping to hear a lot of “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea,” the band’s landmark 1998 album.
Cher, May 30.
She’s back! After numerous farewell tours, Cher never did say goodbye. This tour, which stops at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, follows her 2013 album, “Closer to the Truth.”
Black Label Society, Five Finger Death Punch, May 30.
Rockfest returns once again. The all-day concert, produced by 89.7 The River, features eight hard rock and metal bands.
Maha Music Festival, Aug. 16.
We don’t quite know who will play Omaha’s all-day indie rock fest, but we’re excited for Maha’s sixth year nonetheless.
