City of Dublin Kicks Off a Summer Concert Series at the New Emerald Glen Amphitheater

The City of Dublin will host seven free concerts this summer at its new amphitheater in Emerald Glen Park.  The Emerald Glen Amphitheater makes its debut as a performance space on Thursday, June 1, in conjunction with the Dublin Farmers’ Market.  

The Doobie Brothers tribute band Long Train Runnin’ will perform a "First Thursday" concert, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., on the Emerald Glen Amphitheater stage, adjacent to the spacious plaza outside of the The Wave, the City of Dublin’s new recreation and aquatic complex.  The plaza area will also be the new home of the Dublin Farmers’ Market.

Other Farmers’ Market “First Thursday” concerts planned for the new space are: Long Time, a Boston tribute band, on July 6; Big Jangle, a Tom Petty tribute band, on August 4; and San Francisco’s Ultimate Tribute to Journey on September 7.

In addition, the City will also offer concerts on the second Tuesdays of the month, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., during the summer months. The Tuesday night concert line-up consists of: The Sun Kings, a popular Beatles tribute band, performing June 13; Lady K and the Kings of Swing, performing swing music July 11; and St. Gabriel’s Celestial Band, performing Dixieland jazz on August 8.  Food trucks will be on site, and the Dublin Host Lions Club will sell wine and beer during the Tuesday concerts.

The Emerald Glen Amphitheater features a large cement stage, and a wide, shallow lawn seating area perfect for picnicking while listening to music.
