The weather is expected to be perfect to take in an outdoor concert this week and there are some great shows in the Berkshires or a short drive away to check out.

Thursday the Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald back in the band Thursday night at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC).  Bonnie Raitt with Lucinda Williams will be under the stars at Tanglewood on Saturday night.

Ringo Star was scheduled to bring his All-Star Band to Tanglewood Friday night but a COVID outbreak in the band forced the postponement.  Posted to the BSO website... “Tanglewood is working on rescheduling the concert. Ticketholders are encouraged to hold onto their tickets until further information is available about a rescheduled performance. Ticketholders will be contacted directly as soon as information is available.”

To save money on Tanglewood shows this summer go directly through their website and not an alternative ticket agency.  This link (BSO) will take you directly to the Tanglewood site.
