Locked out of Heaven with new music releases...

By tommyburton

If you've been itching to see Bruno Mars live, this weekend is your chance. He'll be playing the FedEx Forum in Memphis on 6/6. If that's not good enough, head down to New Orleans and catch his set at the Smoothie King Center on 6/7. Either way, you're sure to have a great time. Why not just go to both shows?

If you need to stay away from the Enormodome and just want some good rock music, check out Better Than Ezra at the Golden Nugget Casino in Biloxi on 6/7.

Tupelo pays tribute to its native son, Elvis at the Tupelo Elvis Festival at the Bancorp South Arena on 6/6.
