Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne likely won’t ever be described as a “pop star,” and that’s probably fine by him, because the singer-songwriter has built both a cult following and mainstream recognition with hits such as “Running on Empty,” “Somebody’s Baby” and “Take It Easy,” the Eagles’ tune Browne co-wrote with Glenn Frey. Browne performs on a solo acoustic tour Friday in the Valley. He’ll appear March 10 in Tucson with artists Alice Cooper, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Nils Lofgren, Keb Mo, Roger Clyne and Calexico.
>> Jackson Browne performs at 8 p.m. Friday at Comerica Theatre, 400 W. Washington St., Phoenix. $36-$76. (602) 379-2800 or livenation.com.
