One of rock ‘n’ roll’s best guitarists, Jeff Beck, is making a stop tonight at The Moore in Seattle.

Beck, 67, earned two entries in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: one for his time with the Yardbirds, the other as a solo artist.

Considered by many to be among the pantheon of guitar greats, Beck forged a sound and style that has helped define what rock is today.

He has played with best of the best.

This tour supports his 2010 release, “Emotion and Comotion,” which won two Grammys.

The band includes Narada Michael Walden on drums, Rhonda Smith on bass and keyboardist Jason Rebello.

Should be one smoking night of music.

Jeff Beck plays at 8 tonight at the Moore, 1932 Second Ave., Seattle.

Tickets are $23 to $93 at www.stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.

The man some people consider the greatest DJ of all time, Tiesto, aka Tijs Verwest, is the headliner at Freaknight, an all-night festival tonight at WaMu Theater.

The Dutch master of the turntable is known and loved around the world. He played at the 2004 Olympics, and has performed for massive audiences on several continents.

His latest album, “Kiss From the Past,” was issued under the alias “Allure.” This summer he released a new single, “Work Hard, Play Hard.”

Expect thundering beats and a night of hard-throbbing dancing.

Tiesto is featured along with Pendulum, Dada Life, Doctor P and Sub Focus.

The 18-and-older show is scheduled for 7:30 tonight, WaMu Theater, 800 Occidental Ave., Seattle.

Tickets are $55 at www.ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.

Freaknight can only be outdone by the Saturday night performer at WaMu, the English heavy metal act Judas Priest.

Judas Priest helped to define the very genre of heavy metal.

Fans argue they’re the super group (others give the title to Black Sabbath).

Still, you have to give the band credit for delighting fans for more than four decades. They rock it and they know it.

Break out the leather, the studs and the hairgel, it’s the Epitaph Tour with Black Label Society &Thin Lizzy.

The concert is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday at WaMu Theater, 800 Occidental Ave., Seattle.

Tickets are $55 at www.ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
