Why is Tanglewood about to ROCK? Yes it’s true. The Boston Symphony Orchestra is about to ROCK with it’s popular artist series that kicks off June 22.
When you think Tanglewood, you think iconic names like James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, and of course the BSO.
With Spring just a few days away, we need SUMMER to fly in like an eagle. (I apologize for the cheesy play on words. Keep in mind we’re expecting a foot of snow as I write this.) Why is Tanglewood about to ROCK? Let’s take a look! According to the BSO:
Boston Symphony Orchestra recently announced its 85th Tanglewood Summer Season, including the Popular Artist Series which kicks off on Thursday, June 22, 2023, with NPR’s oddly informative news quiz program Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! This summer the concert series returns, bringing some of the most engaging artists in pop and rock to perform at Tanglewood with seating in the Koussevitzky Music Shed and on the surrounding lawn. The 2023 Tanglewood Popular Artists lineup includes Steve Miller Band with Very Special Guest Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers on Friday, June 23, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss with Special Guest JD McPherson on Sunday, July 2, the return of James Taylor on Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4, and Train with Special Guest Parmalee on Thursday, August 24.
James Taylor-Train-Robert Plant
Tanglewood promises a SUMMER of hits. I have seen JT, and his LIVE performances sound exactly like your MP3 player. Not to mention Steve Miller. He owned the 1970’s and 80’s with hit after hit. I promise, you will know the words to every song, and also say “I forgot about that one!”
Train’s Pat Monahan is a great guy and brings a ton of hits with him from the 2000’s. Then, there’s Robert Plant. Seeing the lead singer of Led Zeppelin live is a bucket list item.
It’s gonna be a HOT SUMMER. It can’t come soon enough!
