8 megaconcerts coming this summer

In addition to music fests Governors Ball and Panorama Music Festival, there's plenty of big-name concerts coming to NYC this summer. That list just got a bit bigger: Drake just announced his Summer Sixteen tour, with shows at Madison Square Garden happening on August 4 and 5. One has to wonder if he picked the wrong time to roll out his highly anticipated Views from the 6 (due Friday), since Beyoncé decided to surprise release her new album, Lemonade, this weekend. Bey has her own NYC area shows coming up on June 7 and 8. And there's lots more on the calendar too (Guns N' Roses just added a second show at MetLife Stadium). We've rounded up our list of the summer's best megaconcerts below.
