Summer Events Heat Up in Phoenix

Summer Concerts

Phoenix has a reputation for slowing down in the summers, when snowbirds fly the coop and temperature readings start looking like FM radio station call signs. But locals know that the fun never stops in the Valley of the Sun. Concerts and indoor festivals continue throughout the summer season.

With downtown parking at a premium and impaired driving a worry, totalride can help ensure smooth and timely trip to any summer event. Check out these top picks for summertime events in and around Phoenix, then get home safely with our rideshare service.

8/5 Ed Sheeran at Gila River Arena

After two top-selling album releases and numerous UK awards, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran hit big in the U.S. with his 2017 single “Shape of You.” Parking passes for the ginger singer-songwriter’s North American tour can be pricey, so save cash with totalide.

8/8-15 Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field

The D-backs don’t get a summer break. Catch the fastest World Series-winning MLB team in action against the Dodgers, Cubs and Astros this week on their home field, before they head out to Texas to continue the season.

8/25-8/27 Hell City Tattoo Festival at Arizona Biltmore Resort

Show off your ink or get a new tat at this annual cavalcade of skin art. This year’s event includes tattoo competitions and awards for top designs, as well as an art gallery, vendors, live music, and performances by burlesque dancer Cervena Fox and the Monsters of Schlock circus sideshow.

9/6-10/5 Mamma Mia at Phoenix Theatre

Get lost in the story of a daughter, three potential dads and one zany mother in this musical adventure told through classic ABBA songs. If you saw the Meryl Streep film, you’ll love the live version! After the show, take a totalride to nearby FEZ restaurant for late-night cocktails and eats.
