Rock & roll is a young man’s game, and it isn’t so easy to age gracefully when you play it. Once you hit 50 or so, there are only a few options: oldies act, retirement, pop-culture punch line. Jackson Browne, who’ll turn 62 next month, is taking another route. His latest studio album, 2008’s Time the Conqueror, features some of his best songs in 20 years. And his recent collaboration with longtime guitarist David Lindley (who gets equal billing on Browne’s summer tour), Love Is Strange, is an acoustic live album that includes some of Browne’s greatest songs. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee (class of 2004) has almost 40 years’ worth of material to choose from, so his concert sets span his entire career. He also has plenty of stories to share onstage, so no two Browne concerts are ever the same. Still, you can expect to hear favorites like “Late for the Sky,” “These Days,” and “Running on Empty” when Browne and Lindley come to town this weekend. Jackson Browne & David Lindley play Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at Tower City at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $35-$84.20. —Ed Condran
