While many of you like to beat the heat and take off on vacation in June, it’s nice to know there are still some fun events going on this month for those of us sticking around, braving the triple-digit heat.  



Cool down with 90’s rock band 3 Doors Down, coming to the Talking Stick Resort on June 10 at 8pm, at the pool. 3 Doors Down will be singing their biggest hits including “Kryptonite” and “Here Without You”, along with songs from their new album.  $45-$100.  www.talkingstickresort.com



June 14-19 is a perfect time to escape the heat by going to see the Tony Award-winning music “Newsies” from Disney at ASU Gammage. “Newsies” tells the story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to New York’s most powerful men.  The inspirational message of staying true to who you are should leave you feeling good afterwards.  Based on true events.  Tickets for “Newsies” are $30-$150.  www.asugammage.com
