Vince Gill 

When: Wed., Aug. 5 2015

Whenever you're told somebody "needs no introduction," you can pretty much count on hearing one anyway. In the case of Vince Gill, you'd likely hear some impressive stats (20 Grammys, 40 charting singles, 26 million albums sold) and maybe some early history (stints with Ricky Skaggs, Rodney Crowell and, yes, Pure Prairie League). What you won't hear about — but really need to check out on YouTube — is Gill's brilliant confrontation with Westboro Baptist Church protesters. (Best line: "Are any of you guys Phelps-es, or are you like the C-team?") As of this writing, tickets for the country icon's 7 p.m. show at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com) are available from online resale outlets. — Bill Forman
