smg3-FINAL_NEWS

Great music, perfect temperatures and spending time under the stars is the recipe for a beautiful summer night in Castle Rock. Make that dream a reality by joining the Town for the Summer Concert Series at the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park. Tickets for the 2017 season go on sale Monday, May 1.

 

Back for the second year, the concert series brings amazing events to the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park on select weekends May through September. Enjoy live music from nationally known bands, along with craft beer and cocktails under the stars. Think a more intimate version of Red Rocks Amphitheater. These ticketed music events have already become a signature part of summers in Castle Rock.

 

Tickets go on sale Monday, May 1! Head to CRgov.com/PSMConcerts for details. But, don’t wait. These concerts are expected to be very popular. Tickets range from $10 to $45 depending on the artist.

 

The concert series will include:

 

  • Super Diamond – Saturday, May 27
    San Francisco's Super Diamond has become one of the most popular live shows at major nightclubs, theaters, ballrooms and public events throughout the United States. At these venues Super Diamond has generated an exuberant audience response previously unheard of for a tribute band. Many would say that Super Diamond has transcended the label of "tribute band" by passionately immersing themselves in Neil Diamond's huge repertoire and delivering a high-octane show of unforgettable classics such as Cracklin’ Rosie, Sweet Caroline, Forever in Blue Jeans and many others. Super Diamond delivers a glittering, smoke-filled show performing Neil's power ballads and up-tempo hits with unrestrained enthusiasm. The show is pure entertainment - classic music combined with fun, energy and passion - creating nostalgia for the good old days and excitement for today's generation.

  • Thompson Square – Saturday, June 10
    The duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson are a force to be reckoned with in the modern day Country music landscape. International Country music stars, Thompson Square has topped the radio charts across the Unites States, Canada and Australia with #1 hits “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” respectively. After taking its headlining “Just Feels Good Tour” across the U.S., Asia and Australia in 2014, Thompson Square took time off to collaborate in the studio with both Dann Huff and celebrated producer Mickey Jack Cones (Dustin Lynch/ Joe Nichols) to work on the Stoney Creek Records duo’s upcoming third album.

  • Colorado Springs Philharmonic – Sunday, July 2
    Classical music has been alive and well in Colorado Springs since 1927. It all started when 27 local musicians banded together to form the Philharmonic’s distant predecessor, the Colorado Springs Symphony Ensemble. Since then, the musicians of our community have distinguished themselves in numerous ways, giving performances of the highest quality to grateful audiences.

  • Little River Band – Saturday, Aug. 26
    Little River Band is considered to be one of Australia’s most significant bands. It was originally a blend of musicians who had enjoyed success in other Australian rock acts. They immediately claimed their place as one of the great vocal bands of the ‘70s…and the ‘80s. Between 1976 and 1983, chart success in America includes the following singles: It’s a Long Way There, Help Is on Its Way, Happy Anniversary, Reminiscing, Lady, Cool Change, Lonesome Loser, The Night Owls, Take It Easy On Me, Man On Your Mind, We Two, and The Other Guy.

  • Halfway to Hazard – Friday, Sept. 22
    Halfway to Hazard are the opening words of “Cold,” the first song David Tolliver and Chad Warrix wrote together several years after each had put Kentucky in their rear view mirror and ended up in Music City. A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll describes the duo, and their self-titled debut album, a richly-colored portrait of their lives set to words and music that is both deeply personal and utterly familiar to people with small town roots and great big dreams. It is music that is honest, open, gritty and rough around the edges by musicians who make no excuses for who they are or apologies for where they’re from. They’re Halfway to Hazard, and they’re taking the long way home.

The concert series is part of Town Council’s goal to keep our community character alive and ramp up community festivals, concerts and activities. The priority is to continue to bring family friendly events to the Downtown area and Philip S. Miller Park.
