Four months from Memorial Day, on September 28, 2012, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will host its very first event: a Jay-Z concert. After that, the arena’s scheduled shows include Barbra Streisand on October 11 and 13, Rush on October 22, and Justin Bieber on November 12 (as well as all those Brooklyn Nets games). With the exception of Jay-Z, there’s not much to get excited for there, unless you really like Roll the Bones. Below are suggestions of six big-name acts that could play Barclays and get us more excited than hearing “Boyfriend” for the 6,538th time.
