The summer season brings about so many activities that there may be times where you're not too sure what to do. Well, we have the perfect summertime activity -- it's entertaining, you can go with groups of friends and it's not too expensive. Go to a concert! In New York state alone there are hundreds of concerts that happen throughout the summer. Narrow that down to the Manhattan/Long Island area and you still have so much to choose from. We have a list of the top five concerts you won't want to miss this sumer -- which one will you go to?
Good Morning America Concert Series
Every summer Good Morning America holds a live concert by past and present popular artists. Each Friday of the month a concert is held at Rumsey Playfield in Cental Park
-- fans come from all over to see outstanding performances from their favorite artists. Oh, did we mention the concerts are free? Yup, you can see Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz and Mary J. Blige and it will cost you nothing! So, put on some comfortable shoes (you'll be standing around for a while), keep yourself hydrated then relax and enjoy the free, outdoor concert.
Nassau Coliseum Summer Line-Up
Although Madison Square Garden
is the best (and most well-known) music arena in New York, Nassau Coliseum
is definitely next in line. With Warped Tour, Britney Spears & Nicki Minaj and New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys all lined up for the rest of the summer there's no way you will be disappointed.
Jones Beach Theater
There's nothing better than seeing a concert right on the beach. So, get your beach bums to Jones Beach Theater
and see some great perfomances from the Goo Goo Dolls, Blink 182 and Maroon 5. Rain or shine the show goes on so bring your poncho just in case!
Victor Calderone at Distict 36
On August 20th Victor Calderone
will be at District 36
providing some of the best music New York can ask for. Make sure you don't miss one of the best DJs spinning at one of New York's hottest nightclubs. Don't worry, Victor Calderone will make sure you have nothing but a great night.
Size Matters Tour with Steve Angello
The Size Matters Tour kicks off in New York on Govenor's Island
with Steve Angello and Thomas Gold. This concert is packed with great music and performances you definitely don't want to miss. Govenor's Island
