It's only February, but the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park just announced their three summer concert series – Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts at Meijer Gardens, Tuesday Evening Music Club and the Jim & Marie Preston Sunday Strings, featuring musicians from the Grand Rapids Symphony and West Michigan will be back big-time this summer!

The Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts will be June - September. They always have a great mix of acts, alternative, indie, blues and rock. And, this year’s lineup will include Amos Lee, Foreigner and Australian Pink Floyd and a whole bunch more. They're teasing us with these acts, but promise to announce the complete lineup in April.
