Frederick Meijer Gardens, in Grand Rapids, is ready to be back to business with their outdoor concert series for 2021. Just a short drive away, under 2 hours, the picturesque amphitheater is a little unsung gem for many of us on the east side of the state, but well worth he road trip.

Now that restrictions have been lifted, the 2021 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens is scheduled to take place during July, August and September. The series will join two others; the Tuesday Evening Music Club and the Jim & Marie Preston Sunday Strings, featuring musicians from the Grand Rapids Symphony and West Michigan.

Although the full artist lineup, dates and prices will be announced by Monday, June 14, Harry Connick Jr. announced on his website Tuesday that he'll be bringing his show to Meijer Gardens on Monday, August 9, 2021.

Back in April, Meijer Garden teased their lineup stating part schedule will include The Verve Pipe, O.A.R., Kansas, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and Black Violin + Blind Boys of Alabama.

Members of Meijer Gardens will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets for the 2021 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens series during an exclusive two-week members-only pre-sale that will begin on Saturday, June 26 at 9 am.
