Puth in the park

Following up last fall’s intimate “One Night Only” shows, Grammy-nominated and multiplatinum pop hitmaker Charlie Puth brings last year’s release — “CHARLIE” — and a string of new faves to Ravinia Festival for an emotionally cathartic, charmingly witty, danceable night of tunes. Pop singer Alexander Stewart joins Puth for the tour stop; Summer League, 2022’s Bitter Jester Music Festival runner-up, kicks off the night at 6 p.m. at the Carousel Stage.

7:30 p.m. (gates open at 5 p.m.) Saturday, June 24, at Ravinia Festival, 200 Ravinia Park Road, Highland Park. $46-$80 for lawn, $80-$110 for reserved pavilion seats. ravinia.org.

Toad on tour

When the ’90s blew in, they carried along Toad the Wet Sprocket’s third album, 1991’s “Fear,” which featured “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean,” the releases that made the alt-rock band a mainstream radio success. Soon after, “Something’s Always Wrong” and “Fall Down” (from 1994’s “Dulcinea”) cemented the band’s spot as one of the seminal groups of the era’s sound. Toad brings its latest music along with some old favorites for the “All You Want” tour stop, joined by Marcy Playground (“Sex and Candy”).

7 p.m. Wednesday, June 28, at Cahn Auditorium at Northwestern University, 600 Emerson St., Evanston. $44-$100. eventbrite.com.
