WREN Apartments is located right in the heart of Downtown LA, and as an integral part of the Downtown community here in Los Angeles, we are always amazed by the world-renowned concerts that come to our neighborhood. With the seemingly endless supply of amazing musicians and the bustle of Downtown living, it is sometimes hard to keep up with everything and everyone that is coming to town. It is for that reason that today we are going to go over some can’t miss Downtown LA Concerts this summer in August 2017.
#1 – Justin Bieber
Ah, the Biebs! This guy needs no introduction. We have watched him grow up right in front of our eyes and few can say (or admit out loud) that there hasn’t been a moment where they were for a second grooving to one of his many hits. You, yourself, can see him live finally when he comes to DTLA on August 5th to the Rose Bowl Stadium. The show is on a Saturday and starts at 7:30 and isn’t too far from our home here at WREN so head on over and get down to one of the our generation’s biggest celebrities right before your eyes.
Now this event is super cool! August 4th and 5th the music of John Williams from the classic Steven Spielberg movie Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark will be composed live on stage in this once and a lifetime event. As they say on their site, “Don a leather jacket, grab a fedora and crack that bullwhip—actually, maybe leave the whip at home.”, because this amazing event will make you reimagine this classic movie like you have never seen it before.
#3 – Kendrick Lamar
Riding the wave of a smash hit album DAMN, the follow up to his other smash hit album To Pimp A Butterfly, we have ourselves the man of the hour, Kendrick Lamar. Coming off 7 Grammy wins including Best Rap Song of the Year and Best Album of the Year, Kenrick has proven himself to be an unstoppable force in the fabric of our generation. This show on August 7th is a can’t miss as Kendrick hails from just outside of Downtown LA himself. We know we will be there? Will you?
Adult Swim Alumni from the appropriately named, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! are celebrating their 10 year reunion and with that, are touring the country with a tour of one-off songs and riffs that are sure to keep you laughing from start to finish. The show is conveniently located in Downtown at The Theatre at the Ace Hotel on August 8th. Swing by and check it out for yourself!
#5 – Lady Gaga
Next up, Gaga! We all know her for her eccentric outfits, wild live concerts, and artsy exploits, but few can deny the incredible talent this wonderful lady possesses. Lady Gaga comes to down on August 8th when she plays The Forum over in Inglewood. Doors are at 7:30 and tickets are still on sale so head on over and spend a perfect summer day in LA watching Lady Gaga crush it on stage.
#6 – Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is multi-platinum award winner superstar and is coming to Downtown LA on August 10th, 11th, and 12th on tour for his celebrated album (÷). Playing at the Staples Center a short 10 minute walk from our home at WREN Apartments, there is no better place to pregame the show then here. So have a few drinks, mozy on down, and catch one of our generation’s biggest superstars blow out this DTLA concert with his live tunes and celebrated personality.
Well there you have it, our list of the can’t miss Summer DTLA concerts this August. LA has constantly been a mecca, a breeding ground, a constant place of inspiration to musicians for generations previously, and will continue to be for future generations to come… and we are so excited to be apart of this wonderful community that supports the arts and live music shows here in Downtown LA.
