The Austin360 Amphitheater at the Circuit of the Americas is bringing big-name bands to Austin this spring and summer. Technically located just outside of the city limits, Austin360 is the city's largest music venue — and a golden ticket to see larger-than-life acts that, in the past, would have skirted around Austin in favor of other Texas locales. The amphitheater's sophomore season, which kicks off in April, features an impressive lineup that could be worth the price of admission — and the drive out.
