Summer concerts announced

Free shows this summer in Rushville

RUSHVILLE — The Riverside Park Organizing Committee has announced the free 2013 summer concert series at Riverside Park Amphitheater in Rushville with an exceptionally strong and diverse lineup featuring classic rock, country, classic hits, Motown, pop, R&B and more.

“I had hoped that this year’s concert series would be a celebration for the community. From the way the lineup has turned out and the excitement about this year’s performances, it looks like it will be another huge success,” said Mayor Mike Pavey. “I couldn’t be happier with the schedule and am appreciative of those involved in organizing this venue. I am proud of the way the community has supported the Rushville amphitheater.”

In June, Riverside Park Amphitheater welcomes Pink Droyd (A Tribute to Pink Floyd) as they bring to life the music of Pink Floyd Saturday, June 1 to kickoff the series with classic hits like “Money,” “Another Brick in the Wall (part II)” and “Wish You Were Here.”

Speaking of hits, southern rockers Georgia Satellites will take the stage June 15. This legendary band is best known for their Billboard hit “Keep Your Hands To Yourself,” along with “Battleship Chains” and “Hippy Hippy Shake.”

The July 19 show features KIST, a tribute to KISS playing the all-time great hits “Detroit Rock City,” “Strutter” and “Rock and Roll All Night.” KIST bases its stage show on the KISS shows of the 1970s, performing in the Alive II costumes!

There will be something for everyone July 27 when The Echo’s come to Riverside Park performing hits from the ‘50s, ‘60s and early ‘70s. You’ll hear tunes from Elvis, The Everly Brothers, Motown, country, rock & roll and more!

The season rounds out in August when WFMS 95.5 welcomes Levi Riggs Aug. 10. This Danville native has performed all over the world and has opened for country stars such as The Band Perry, Easton Corbin, Colt Ford, Justin Moore and Brett Eldredge.

Who’s Bad (The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band) will close the summer concert series Aug. 24. This live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s king. Their power-packed performance has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see.
