Your guide to entertainment in Charlotte in the week ahead

Music

Nicki Minaj

Tue 8.4 7 p.m. PNC Music Pavilion, 707 Pavilion Blvd. $33.85-$147.26. www.livenation.com.

For perhaps the first time, a female rapper headlines the amphitheater. And while Minaj provides plenty of hits and glitz, what would her concert be without a little drama? Having put her VMAs-related Twitter beef with Taylor Swift to a quick end, she and fiancé Meek Mill (who is in a feud with Drake) share the stage.

Music

Boz Scaggs

Wed 8.5 7:30 p.m. Knight Theater, 430 S. Tryon St. $20-$119.50. www.blumenthalarts.org.

The seasoned crooner follows 2013’s “Memphis,” which featured local musicians, with the similarly conceptual “A Fool to Care.” Again working with producer Steve Jordan, Scaggs puts his stamp on songs by Al Green, the Band and the Spinners, with guests Ray Parker Jr., Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt.

Theater

Girls on Trapeze

Fri 8.7 8 p.m. Booth Playhouse, 130 N. Tryon St. $20-$30. www.carolinecalouche.org.

The show blends theater, storytelling and aerial movement in personal accounts of a moment, lesson or role model in each performer’s life, as they define “what femininity and being a woman means to them.”

Opera

‘Dido and Aeneas’

Fri 8.7 7 p.m. (also Aug. 8). Myers Park United Methodist Church, 1501 Queens Road. $15. www.carolinatix.org.

Mosaic Arts presents Henry Purcell’s one-hour opera about the Trojan hero and queen of Carthage, at the culmination of Opera Carolina Academy’s two-week student workshop.

Theater

‘4000 Miles’

Fri 8.7 7:30 p.m. (and through Aug. 16). UpStage, 3306-C N. Davidson St. $16 advance; $18 door. www.upstagenoda.com.

Three Bone Theatre does Amy Herzog’s Obie-winning play about a 21-year-old man, who suffers a major loss on a cross-country bike trip and seeks consolation from his 91-year-old grandmother.
