Willie Nelson, Beach Boys headed to Hoosier Park

ANDERSON, Ind. — Hoosier Park Racing & Casino Friday announced its official Summer’s Greatest Hits lineup, presented by Coors Light.  

In its third year, Hoosier Park’s summer stage will welcome a series of four national headlining acts to the Hoosier Park outdoor music center. The three-month-long summer series will run from Saturday, June 8 through Saturday, Aug. 31.

Known for such hits as “The Heart of Rock and Roll” and “I Want a New Drug,” Huey Lewis & the News will kick off the summer concert series on Saturday, June 8 with their “Sports” Anniversary Tour, named after their seven-time platinum 1983 album.

Fellow 1980s rockers, The B-52s and The Go-Go’s, will bring their new-wave brand of rock to the stage on Saturday, June 29 playing their respective hits that include “Love Shack” and “We Got the Beat.”

On Friday, July 12 country music legend Willie Nelson will treat country music fans to the classics that built his storied career such as “On the Road Again” and “Always on My Mind.” Alongside his series of fan favorites, Willie Nelson and Family will play songs from their April 16 forthcoming album, “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” that is being described as a collection of American standards and country classics.

The smooth, surfer-inspired harmonies of The Beach Boys will once again grace the Hoosier Park summer stage on Saturday, Aug. 31, since last performing at the Anderson racetrack and casino in July 2009. The Beach Boys, recently coming off their 50th anniversary international tour, released a new studio album that represents a new harmonic blending from a super group with such hits as “Good Vibrations,” “Surfin’ U.S.A,” and “Kokomo.”

The Hoosier Park outdoor music center accommodates up to 4,500 reserved ticket seats. The music center features a wide variety of ticket options, including premium VIP seating and private party decks complete with personal beverage service.

Tickets will go on sale Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m. Ticket prices range from $23 to $67. Special VIP seating is available for an additional charge.  Tickets for the Coors Light Summer Concert Series can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling 800-745-3000 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com.  Concert-goers may also purchase directly from the box offices located in Shelby’s Gifts at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino or in Hoosier Park’s Winner’s Circle Pub, Grille & OTB located in downtown Indianapolis. Club Centaur members will receive a 20 percent discount on tickets purchased at both Hoosier Park box offices.

Loyal sponsors Coors Light, Modern Trailer Sales, Deem Mechanical & Electric Company, and Piazza Produce will once again additionally support the Summer’s Greatest Hits lineup.
