Top Lineup For Citi Field Concerts

During the past few years, many MLB teams have scheduled top tier talent to perform in concert after the scheduled games have been completed. The concerts are intended to draw more people to attend the baseball games, thus bringing additional revenue. The organizations are also hopeful that non-baseball fans will attend and become more closely drawn to the sport.

The 2015 upcoming concerts scheduled for June, July and August at Citi Field will again present a wide array of fine, diverse and popular performers. All three are perfect date night or family attractions as they are to be held on Saturday evenings. The first post-game concert will follow the 4:10 pm game between the Mets and the Cincinnati Reds. The septuagenarian rocker Steve Miller and his Band will perform approximately 20 minutes after the game concludes.

The first incarnation of the band was a blues band that began in the mid-1960’s in Chicago. Several years later, Miller travelled to San Francisco where his new group took on a psychedelic flavor. The hit recordings began for the band in the late 1960’s with “Living in the USA”, “Space Cowboy”, and “My Dark Hour”. Top hits abounded in the 1970’s with rock favorites “The Joker”, “Fly Like an Eagle”, “Rock’n Me”, and “Abracadabra”.

Despite changes in personnel over the years, the band has been a popular touring attraction.

The musical attraction on Saturday night, July 25th, after the conclusion of the 7:10 pm game between the Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers is Heart. Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of Seattle, Washington have been the heart (pun intended) of the group since the 1970’s. Hit recordings of the 1970’s like “Magic Man” and “Barracuda” were following in the 1980’s and 1990’s by “These Dreams”, “Alone” and “Never”.

They have received several special tributes for their excellence as well as their longevity. Heart, like the Steve Miller band, has received a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. The biggest came in 12013 as they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Youngest of the musical performers, “Ne-Yo”, 36 years old, began his musical career in the late 1990’s. The multi-talented performer is a singer, dancer, actor and song writer. He will perform the last of the post-game concerts at Citi Field on the evening of August 15, after the Mets Pittsburgh Pirates game at 7:10. It is expected the artist will perform many of his best-selling hits.

Although the time of each baseball game cannot be predicted in advance, each of the concerts should be expected to last approximately one hour. There is no additional charge to attend the games in which concerts are performed, but the crowds are usually much larger than normal. Thus, it is wise to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased at Citi Field.

In addition to the post-game concerts, two very popular groups will be performing at Citi Field, when the Mets are on the road. Foo Fighters will perform on July 15 and 16 and the Zac Brown Band will be on stage on August 21 and 22. Both groups are multi-Grammy winners and will appear at Citi field as part of a length tour.
