The average price for a concert ticket in 2008 was 67-dollars. So, how would you like to enjoy an entire summer of music for absolutely free?
Every Wednesday night from six to eight, head down to America the Beautiful Park in downtown Colorado Springs for a free concert. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and maybe a picnic lunch for a cheap evening out and great music.
You'll enjoy acts from doo wop to bluegrass. The concerts run through August 19th.
That again, that's every Wednesday night.. we also have every Friday night covered.
If Friday nights are better for you, head over to Powers and North Carefree in the Springs for the "First and Main Free Summer Concert Series." It runs every Friday evening through August 7th. Enjoy live performances of everything from zydeco (Cajun music), to swing, to jazz.
Saturday, June 13th, we have the cure for your summertime blues.
Louisiana delta blues man Willie Houston takes the stage at Rock Ledge Ranch near Garden of the Gods at seven P.M. It's a rare treat to hear this 81-year old. He's the real deal with few surviving alumni.
