Shawn Mendes

After a run of sold-out shows in his native Canada, the 20-year-old pop star brings his third international headline tour to the States. For nearly five years now, the earnest strummer with the quivering voice has been a steady presence on Top 40 radio with “Stitches,” “In My Blood” and the current “If I Can’t Have You,” the breezy, falsetto-spiked plea that’s one of the summer’s hottest singles. Opening is another Canadian pop star, Alessia Cara, winner of a 2018 Grammy for best new artist and the voice of the hits “Stay” and “Scars to Your Beautiful.” (7:30 p.m. Fri., Xcel Energy Center, W. 7th St. & Kellogg Blvd, St. Paul, $66.50 and up, ticketmaster.com.)

TC Pride in Concert

The “L” in TLC has been missing since the 1992 death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, but her bandmates Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas finally returned to singing “Waterfalls,” “No Scrubs” and their other classics sans Lopes in 2015. They make a great fit this year for the main TC Pride party, which will also feature the Vigilantease Collective, Sweet Siren and RuPaul “Drag Race” alum Monét X Change. (6 p.m. Sat., Loring Park, Mpls., $20, tcpride.org.).
