Don’t let these hot days get in the way of all the fun to be had all around the Valley this weekend.

Don’t forget to share photos of you enjoying these events with the hashtag #SL5 and follow us at @scottsdaleliving on Instagram!

Tim McGraw
Pull on those cowgirl boots and hold onto your stetsons! The Dancehall Doctor himself is swooping down on Phoenix for his “Sundown Heaven Town” Tour this weekend. His new album of the same name isn’t due for release until September, but he may just sneak in a few newbies for the diehard fans. If not, the well-awarded country artist can always play one of his many, many hit songs from albums past.
Ak-Chin Pavilion, 2121 N. 83rd Ave., Phoenix, Friday, May 16, 7 p.m., $40 to $308

George Lopez
Your kids may know George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf, but you probably know him as the raucous stand-up comedian or his work on TV shows “George Lopez” and “Lopez Tonight.” No seat in Celebrity Theatre will be immune to Lopez’s observational humor, but that’s half the fun!
