Kelly Clarkson plays Jones Beach Theater on August 21 and PNC Bank Arts Center on August 26.
Ah, the summer, the time of year when one can enjoy a concert in the glorious out of doors. This morning Live Nation announced the full lineups for its two local amphitheaters—the PNC Bank Arts Center in bucolic Holmdel, N.J. and the Jones Beach Theater, out on the South Shore of Nassau County—and there's a bit of a youthquake going on, especially when you compare the roster to last year's nostalgia-choked lineup.

Oh, sure, there's looking back to be had—you can remember the '70s with the ocean-loving Stevie Nicks, the '80s with Def Leppard, the '90s with an alt-rock-stuffed package tour that has both Sugar Ray and the Gin Blossoms on its bill, or the '00s at the still-moshing Warped Tour—but Drake is headlining both venues, Wiz Khalifa is bringing Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q to Jones Beach, and Big Time Rush will try to prove to the kids that it's important to cultivate some hoome-grown boy bands. And Kelly Clarkson, who, despite her curious decision to tour with the soggy blankets in the Fray, always puts on a great show, and she's playing both venues as well. Tickets for many of these concerts are on sale now; check Live Nation's official site for details. Full lineup below.
