Every week, we present a curated list of live music in a wide range of genres all around the Valley, and this week features performers who’ve left their bands to go solo.

October 3
Roger Waters
The outspoken co-founder of Pink Floyd has said his new tour will be one of his last, but if you’re jonesing to see Waters perform The Dark Side of the Moon, it’s going to cost you more than $600 for a VIP ticket. 8 p.m., $25-$604, Desert Diamond Arena, 29400 W. Maryland Ave., Glendale, 623-772-3200, gilariverarena.com

October 3-4
Trey Anastasio
During the pandemic, the prolific live performer and Phish frontman released two solo albums as a way to deal with the loneliness he was feeling. Now that he’s back on tour, he’s eager to connect with audiences through his music. 7:30 p.m., $57.50-$97.50, Orpheum Theatre, 203 W. Adams St., Phoenix, 602-381-0184, phoenixconventioncenter.com

October 6
Stevie Nicks
The influential singer is finally coming home to the Valley to perform. And if being the only woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice wasn’t enough to rest her laurels on, her story has now become a comic book that was released this year. 8 p.m., $49.50-$660, Ak-Chin Pavillon, 2121 N. 83rd Ave., Phoenix, 602-254-7200, livenation.com

Marcus Mumford
The founding member of Mumford and Sons managed quite the coup for his first solo album: getting former Phoenix resident Steven Spielberg to direct the music video for “Cannibal,” the record’s first single. 8 p.m., $49.50-$55, The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix, 480-659-1641, thevanburenphx.com
