The Today Show Summer Concert Series

More than 20 years ago I took a business trip to New York City – I lived in Reading, Pennsylvania at the time – and managed to catch a performance by Chicago on NBC’s Today Show.  At the performance, I stood right in front and almost got to speak with Al Roker.  Little did I know that it was part of the Summer Concert Series, which has really caught on and is now in its 24th year.  Because of its popularity, good luck getting in the front row; in fact, some local radio stations often gives away passes to accompany them to a show, standing in the front row.  This year’s series began on May 6 with Jennifer Lopez and wraps up on September 2 with Why Don’t We.  And here are the other performers:

  • Kacey Musgraves on July 19
  • Andy Grammer on July 26
  • Aloe Blacc on August 16
  • Lizzo on August 23

It’s a great way to spend a morning in New York City, but get there early.  Get the full schedule at
