  • NSYNC - Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez and Lance Bass graced the Sun Bowl stage back in August 2001. NSYNC would break up a few months after this concert.
  • Gun's and Roses - the band had past it's prime when they rocked the Sun Bowl back in September 2017. Nonetheless, seeing this amazing band finally back together was a Sun Bowl highlight. ZZ Top was on the top of their game as the opening act.
  • One Direction - 1D was at it's peak when they played the Sun Bowl in September 2014. 1D went on to produce four solo artist (five if you count Louis Tomlison).
  • The Rolling Stones -  One of the greatest rock bands of all time played the Sun Bowl back in October 2006. If you ever see the Stones live, you'll see why they are so highly regarded.
  • U2 - The Zoo TV Tour rocked the Sun Bowl on October 1992. The U2 stage was one of the most elaborate ever. Especially for 1992. The Zoo TV tour gave us hits like Mysterious Ways and the now classic One.  A brief segment of the show was broadcast live on MTV that night.
