MICHAEL BUBLÉ

Wednesday: Long before Justin Timberlake discovered a suit and tie, Canada’s Bublé was wearing them as part of his Vegas-y crooner act — except that his outfit was from the thrift shop. Now that he’s headlining arenas and scoring with such original tunes as “Haven’t Met You Yet” and “Home,” Bublé can afford designer threads to go with his slick-and-suave big-stage presentation, which includes a small satellite stage this time. His repertoire includes his interpretations of songs associated with Frank Sinatra, Van Morrison and the Bee Gees. (8 p.m. Wed. $56.50-$112. Xcel Energy Center, 7th St. and W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul. www.ticketmaster.com.)
