The Summer Concert Series will feature iconic music throughout the season

The programming for ProMedica’s 2022 Summer Concert Series has been announced, with tickets now on sale. All concerts will take place at Promenade Park. A full timeline of music icons that should appear:

June 17: common

A staple of the American rap scene for three decades, Common is one of the few performers to have won an Emmy (for the song “Letter to the Free” from the Netflix series 13th), an Oscar (for the song “Glory” by Selma) and a Grammy (three, in fact). He is also a well-traveled actor with roles in films such as Smokin’ Ace and John Wick: Chapter Two.

June 24: Night Ranger and Sebastian Bach

Most famous for their power ballad “Sister Christian” (which, to be honest, you’ve had in your head now since we mentioned it), Night Ranger has sold over 17 million albums over its four decades on the American music scene. . Their last album, ATBPOis out in 2021. Skid Row singer Bach will also perform.

July 1: Killer Queen

Queen’s music remains timeless, and the legend of Freddie Mercury has only grown since his untimely death. One of the most renowned Queen tribute bands in the world, Killer Queen was founded in 1993 by Patrick Myers, who takes the lead and bears a striking resemblance to Mercury himself.

July 8: One Nation Under a Groove Tour with George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic

It’s time to get up to speed. Iconic funk musician George Clinton turns 81 this summer, but he won’t let that stop him from bringing his new collective Parliment-Funkadelic to Toledo. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Clinton says this could be his last tour, so get out there and see one of music’s most notable performers while you still can.

July 15: Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo

Legendary rocker Pat Benatar began working with guitarist Neil Giraldo in 1979. In 1982 they married and have remained together ever since, a personal and professional partnership that produced some of the most iconic songs of the 80s, including ” Love is a Battlefield” and “We belong.”

July 22: Craig Morgan

Born in 1964, Craig Morgan came to music a bit later than most, releasing his first album in 2000 after serving in the US military for nearly a decade. He made up for lost time, however, with seventeen different songs on the Billboard country charts and seven different songs in the top ten, including the No. 1 hit “That’s What I Love About Sunday”.

August 5: 90s House Party

Break out your mixtapes and get ready to party like it’s 1999, as the ’90s House Party Tour brings some of the decade’s most iconic artists together on one stage. Coolio (“Gangsta’s Paradise”), Rob Base (“It Takes Two”), Kid ‘n Play (“Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody”), Montell Jordan (“This is How We Do It”) and Color Me Badd ( “I want to make love to you”).

August 12: Jeep Fest 2022: a large country barbecue and Honky-Tonk

The popular festival celebrating Toledo’s iconic vehicle returns and the concert series kicks off the weekend with an evening of music and food at Promenade Park. Popular country music artist Justin Moore, responsible for number one singles “Small Town USA” and “‘Til My Last Day,” will headline the stage, with attendees getting a rack of ribs at the Saint-Louis and more.

August 26: KC & the Sunshine Band

“It’s like that (I like that).” “(Shake, shake, shake) Shake your booty.” “Come down tonight.” “I’m your Boogie Man.” The group behind some of the iconic sounds of the 70s, KC & the Sunshine Band, started in 1973 by Harry Wayne Casey (hence “KC”). He has led the band ever since, through a brief retirement in the 1980s and many member changes.

September 16: Patti LaBelle

Godmother of Soul and one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Female Vocalists, Patti LaBelle has been one of the most visible and popular artists for over 50 years. With songs like “You Are My Friend” and “New Attitude” under her belt, LaBelle has two Grammys to her name and the iconic song “Lady Marmalade” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
