Madison Square Garden

While it’s not technically located in Nassau or Suffolk, Madison Square Garden needs to be on a list of Long Island concert venues because it’s just a short train ride away.

                May 1 and 2: Pearl Jam

                May 27 and June 17: Billy Joel

                June 18 through 20: The Cure

                June 21: Ellie Goulding

Barclays Center

                May 17: The 1975

                June 1: Selena Gomez

June 14 and 15: Florence + the Machine
