Spring is still in waiting in the wings, so it may be hard to think about your summer plans. With tickets for the 2018 Tanglewood Popular Artists Series on sale, however, you may want to try! Tanglewood is offering a host of music stars and legends again this summer, including Roger Daltrey, Andy Grammer, and the Steve Miller Band!
People tend to think of Tanglewood Music Festival as primarily a vehicle for classical music – and they’re not wrong. That being said, they also offer a variety of pop music events alongside the more staid music festival. Past years have seen such talent as Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan.
2018 is no slouch, either with Roger Daltrey of The Who performing his band’s legendary “TOMMY” album with the Boston Pops Orchestra. The Steve Miller Band will make their first visit to the Tanglewood stage in the company of guitarist Peter Frampton. Multi-platinum pop star Andy Grammer will also make his Tanglewood debut in 2018.
Recent additions to the schedule include a June evening of David Crosby with Mary Chapin Carpenter and Chris Hillman with Herb Pedersen. Tanglewood also recently announced a June 1st show with Ry Cooder and Emmylou Harris.
Other highlights include James Taylor returning for two Independence Day weekend shows, “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.
