News: Heart, Kansas the Guess Who lead Hudson Gardens summer concert scheduleBy Ray Mark Rinaldi | March 26th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
It’s the ’80s all over again. Or maybe the ’70s. The ’60s?
It’s the Hudson Gardens & Event Center’s 2012 summer concert season and it’s a nostalgic lineup of bands who were big back in the day, and keep on keeping on. And keeping on after that.
The Guess Who. Three Dog Night. Rick Springfield. These acts simply can’t be killed, so you might as well hear them rock out at Hudson Gardens. This is what mindless summer fun is all about, we say.
A few details: The Gardens address is 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton. All shows at 6:30 p.m. except for the July 3 and 4 dates which begin at 7 p.m. so it’s dark enough for fireworks. Tickets on sale Monday, April 9 at tickethorse.com or 303-53HORSE.
Here’s the lineup, announced this morning, direct from the Gardens.
