Over the next four months, Lincoln will be home to top-shelf entertainment, from violinist Joshua Bell performing with Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra at the Lied Center for Performing Arts to hip-hop great Jay Z returning to the Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The Ground Zero staff has put together a fall entertainment guide for you filled with concerts, theater and fine arts as well as music and dance available at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Nebraska Wesleyan University.

Of course, the list isn't comprehensive. More concerts and shows may be added along the way and dates also are subject to change.

But the following gives you a good idea of how rich Lincoln's entertainment scene has become.
