Three major events planned for the area have officials closing roads and warning of heavy traffic.

Legendary rock bank U2 will be packing the Rose Bowl for their “The Joshua Tree” tour shows on both Saturday and Sunday.

Both shows have been sold out, according to the city’s website.

Tickets are also already gone for another Pasadena favorite. The two-day annual "Explore JPL" event at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The event is free, but those wanting to get inside the lab do need to have a ticket.

The third event sure to attract a crowd will be the final leg of the Amgen Tour of California, with dozens of professional cyclists racing through Pasadena on Saturday.

The race will result in several road closures throughout the day.
