There are some shows worth checking out on MTV & MTV2 over the next week or so. They’re having a ‘Backstage Pass Week’, which means:

Enjoy the best in live music from the comfort of your favorite chair as MTV, MTV2 and team up and issue you a VIP Backstage Pass to this summer’s finest tours. See live concerts and special editions of your favorite shows like TRL, MTV2 Rock, True Life, and All Things Rock on MTV and MTV2. will have exclusive MTV News tour coverage, live music downloads, live performance videos, and much more

The shows that I’ve set my TiVo for are these episodes of Backstage Pass: The Roots and Hip Hop Superstars (check your local listings… they’re on a few times). Here are some other upcoming shows that may be of interest: Reggae Duets, hosted by Mya, Bad Boys for Life (I’m assuming this is related to the movie Bad Boys II), and Making the Video: Beyoncé – Crazy In Love
