A couple upcoming summer concerts at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre you may want to know about include two very different yet well-known bands.
First up is Sublime – a popular ska, reggae, punk, surf rock, and hip-hop band on July the 20th.
Formed in Long Beach, Calif., in 1988, Sublime delivered a blend of ska, reggae, punk, surf rock, and hip-hop. Over the course of its three albums, the band has now sold more than 17 million albums worldwide.
Lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroin overdose two months prior to the release of Sublime, which reached No. 13 on the Billboard Top 200, sold six million copies, and spawned such hits as “What I Got,” “Santeria,” and “Wrong Way,” which remain radio staples across with country.
Profoundly affected by Nowell’s death, Eric Wilson never considered performing the group’s music live without their frontman.
It took the talent and enthusiasm of songwriter and musician Rome Ramirez — a genial, now 24-year-old — to change that. Growing up in the Bay Area, Rome was introduced to Sublime’s music by his uncle, and credits the band with inspiring him to first pick up a guitar and learn to play at age 11.
Other performances by Julian Marley, Pennywise & HB Surround Sound are included in this featured show. Get your tickets now. Gates open at 5:00 pm and show starts at 6:00 pm July 20th at the St Augustine Amphitheatre.
Next up is the Monkees on July the 26th!
This is one many of the Babyboomers have been waiting for!
Following their sold out 2012 fall tour, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this summer for a reprise. Because of the overwhelming demand from fans unable to see the limited run the trio undertook last November, The Monkees are bowing to popular demand, bringing their show to all new venues and markets this summer. Dubbed “A Midsummer’s Night With The Monkees,” the jaunt kicks off at Port Chester, New York’s Capitol Theatre on July 15 and wraps at Portland, Oregon’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on August 18.
The trio’s set list will feature a selection of their classic hits (such as “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”), deep cuts from their first five platinum albums (including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s) and fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic Head and their Emmy®-award winning television series. Plus, a few surprises!
The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs culled from the archives. Backed by the same stellar crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio. This foray into tracks from their 1967 homespun #1 long player, Headquarters, is sure to be among the highlights of the upcoming dates.
In many cases, this tour will mark the first concerts from The Monkees to some areas of the United States in decades. Purchase tickets now for this soon-to-be sold out show! Gates will open on July 26th at 6:30 pm and show begins at 8:00 pm.
