Musical idol after idol graces the BOK Center stage.

First comes U2 on May 2; the band begins its North American Tour in Tulsa. BOK Center was chosen among a handful of venues, which include Madison Square Garden in New York and the Forum in Los Angeles.

Cinco de Mayo ushers in perennial pop favorite Justin Timberlake on his Man of the Woods Tour. BOK marketing manager Meghan Blood says these concerts are can’t-miss.

“Both of these concerts should be iconic, and we have to thank Tulsans for having such a great appreciation for live music,” she says. “If it wasn’t for them continuing to buy tickets, we couldn’t be as successful as we have been and will continue to be.”

Other shows at BOK Center this month include Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown on May 10; Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss on May 16; and Depeche Mode on May 29. Visit for details.
