Every week, we present a curated list of live music in a wide range of genres all around the Valley. This week we focus on arena bands past and present.

March 14
Imagine Dragons
Music fans hate to love the Las Vegas-based Imagine Dragons. But since superstar producer Rick Rubin stepped behind the boards of their latest record, is it only a matter of time until we all embrace the “Radioactive” group? 7 p.m., $34.50-$219.50, Footprint Center, 201 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix, 602-379-7800, footprintcenter.com.

March 16
Judas Priest with Queensryche
Rob Halford, the legendary lead singer of the heavy metal band Judas Priest, is a Paradise Valley resident, so can we call this concert a homecoming show? $48.50-$100, 7:30 p.m., Arizona Federal Theatre, 400 W. Washington St., Phoenix, 602-514-2919, azfederaltheatre.com.
