Cary, NC – I love Booth Ampitheatre in Cary. The atmosphere under the trees, the amazing sound quality and the variety of musical acts make this a town treasure. Here’s an update on what’s coming up for Cary concert-goers this summer.
July 11 – Grateful Dead Revival with Phil Lesh & Bob Weir
Furthur, the touring band of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, will be bringing that Haight-Asbury sound to Cary on the 11th of July. It’s a little country, a little jazz and a little rock & roll. Most of the band’s extensive song repertoire comes straight from the Grateful Dead, with the rest coming from other well known artists.
July 21 – Glen Campbell
Glen Campbell will bring his country melodies into Cary on the 21st of July. One of the biggest names in the Country Music world, the four-time Grammy winner and Country Music Hall of Famer has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and is on his Goodbye Tour.
