Everybody knows that when the Jefferson Airplane shed its wings in the 1970s, the Starship took off into the pop stratosphere with a stellar overdrive fueled by arena rock blasted at full throttle. The ole hippie-dippy psychedelic sound wasn’t quite left behind in the rush from its San Francisco roots, but the band headed in a different direction that had harder metallic edges than ever before. Going further was always the destination of this ship, and what a long strange trip it’s indeed been on—and it’s still going strong despite the loss of one of its key pilots, Paul Kantner. Climb on board and listen to the music of the stars. Suffolk Theater, 118 E Main St., Riverhead. suffolktheater.com $49-$60. 8 p.m. Jan. 14.

Bush
These ’90s British rockers are out to reclaim their title of “Sonic Ear Candy Purveyors” in a big way, performing their comeback album The Sea of Memories, their first release in 20 years (its track “The Sea of Winter” topped the charts for six weeks), as well as all their popular earlier hits. Bush rose to success two decades ago, selling close to 20 million records in the US and Canada alone, and pumping out 18 consecutive Top 40 Hit Singles on the Modern and Mainstream Rock charts, including “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter.” True, frontman Gavin Rossdale definitely needs to have his head examined after allegedly cheating on Gwen Stefani with a look-a-like nanny (who’s is at the center of their ongoing divorce), but perhaps he’ll channel all that frustration and misplaced angst into a really show-stopping performance! There’s no beating around it: Bush is back in town. The Paramount, 370 New York Ave., Huntington. paramountny.com $54.50- $149.50. 10 p.m. Dec. 31.

Engelbert Humperdinck
Once upon a time frenzied female fans of Engelbert Humperdinck—and no, that’s not his real name—would toss their undergarments on stage as they swooned over this permanently popular English pop star. His hits “(Please) Release Me,” “The Last Waltz,” “After the Lovin’” and “A Man Without Love” render knees weak and make hearts flutter. Why? Because the Humpler is a big hunk of a loving man, that’s why. And if there’s any doubt about his having the chops, ask those he’s sung duets with–they range from Wynonna Judd to Johnny Mathis, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson and even Elton John. This guy gets around. Ask those who’ve bought more than 150 million of his records—63 gold and 24 platinum. Can you believe that Jimi Hendrix was once his opening act? Yeah, that must have been a mind-blowing experience for those concertgoers. And don’t forget that it was Humperdinck who influenced Elvis to don the sideburns and the flamboyant leather jumpsuits.
