"Scream IV" featuring Bow Wow, Omarion, Marques Houston, Bobby Valentino, B5 and Pretty Ricky 

Subtitled "The Heartthrobs Tour," this show brings together the young studs of R&B. Bow Wow (pictured) is touring on the heels of the Jermaine Dupri-produced Wanted (Sony). He's also sharing the stage with former B2K member Omarion, and the two currently enjoy the No. 2 song on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Chart with their duet, "Let Me Hold You." They'll be onstage together swapping mini-sets along with a host of other current chart-toppers. Omarion's half-brother Marques Houston is on the bill as is Bobby Valentino, who has a Top-20 R&B hit with "Slow Down." Pretty Ricky opens, and he has a hit with "Grind With Me." Like the boy bands of a few years past -- and really, like male artists appealing to young girls for years -- these singers sell a vision of love and romance that is, for the most part, sexless. When Valentino sings, "I just want to know you," you get the impression he means it, and not in the biblical way. Tickets $24-$38.50.

7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13

New Orleans Arena, 1500 Poydras St., 587-3663; www.neworleansarena.com
