Jimmy Webb

The famous songwriter will tell the stories behind his famous songs, including “MacArthur Park,” “Up, Up and Away” and “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.” But the evening will take on a special resonance as Webb revisits “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” the classics he penned for the late Glen Campbell. Last month when the singer died, Webb wrote a heartfelt tribute in Variety magazine, promising, “While I can play a piano, he will never be forgotten.” (7 p.m. Sat., Dakota Jazz Club, Mpls, $40-$50, 612-332-1010 or dakotacooks.com.)

The Weeknd

When his “Can’t Feel My Face” was all over the place in 2015, he didn’t bring his headline tour to the Twin Cities. Now the Grammy-winning, “Starboy” hitmaker is finally going to show his face in our place. Reports indicate that he’ll fly over the fans like Kanye West, sing with a pure pop voice like Michael Jackson and give off a vibe like Drake, his hometown pal from Toronto. Opening acts include Nav and Gucci Mane. (7:30 p.m. Sun., Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, $39.75-$125.75, ticketmaster.com)
