One of the most anticipated Vancouver rock concerts of 2022--the Foo Fighters show set for October 6 at Rogers Arena--was canceled in the wake of drummer Taylor Hawkins's tragic death last month.
But there are still a whole lot of other primo gigs coming up this year to keep live-music fans happy.
Here's 10 to consider:
The Music of Cream, May 7 at the Biltmore Cabaret (moved from Imperial Vancouver.)

Midnight Oil, June 1 at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park.
