about this item

Music lovers know there’s something magical about seeing the right band at the right time. Some phenomenal gigs showcase a key artist on the rise or a mega-star at the top of their game. Others capture the cultural zeitgeist or bring together multiple heavy-hitters. Lighters in the Sky features transcendent moments from music legends, from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the King of Pop to Queen and Queen Bey. These shows made jaws drop and changed music history.

Each concert narrative makes readers feel as if they’re at the show, experiencing the excitement as it happened. Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to witness the Beatles at Shea Stadium, Madonna in Rome, or Kanye West at Coachella?

There are heaping servings of classic rock, rap, and pop, but the scope of artists and genres is vast and there’s something for music fans of all stripes. There are dozens of music icons, including Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Prince, Nirvana, Green Day, and Jay-Z. Relive festivals that changed music history, including Monterey Pop, Woodstock, and Lollapalooza. Stick up your devil horns and get ready to rock!

Corbin Reiff is the deputy music editor of Uproxx. He has written for some of the biggest music publications, including Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, The A.V. Club, Ultimate Classic Rock, and Guitar World.
