Lowell Summer Music Series shows announced – Lowell Sun

LOWELL – With our focus on turkey dinners and holiday shopping, the hard-working men and women at the Lowell Summer Music Series have put together the 2022 lineup of shows that will take to the Boarding House stage. Park next summer.

Three new shows were added to the lineup which already included Gaelic Storm on June 24 and Joss Stone on June 25.

The Mavericks will take the stage on June 18 while the popular Classic Albums Live tour returns to Boarding House Park on August 5, with this year’s concert featuring Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” in its entirety. The last show announced is the great jazzman Madeleine Peyroux, who comes to Lowell on August 20.

Here’s a little more about each of the three new announcements:

The Mavericks concert is already on sale with advance tickets priced at $ 49 each and premium seats at $ 149 each. The Mavericks effortlessly blend rock and country with Tex-Mex, Cuban bolero, R&B and blues influences. They started in Miami in 1989, met with both popular success and rave reviews in the 1990s, then took a long hiatus in 2003. They reunited in 2012 and have been together ever since. They are on tour behind the very first all-Spanish album, “En Espanol”. Although all of the tracks are in Spanish, they only sing a few Spanish songs live and perform all of their biggest hits in English.

Classic Albums Live: Rumors COURTESY LOWELL SUMMER MUSIC SERIES

Classic Albums: Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumors’ is already on sale with advance tickets priced at $ 34 each and premium seats at $ 84 each. This is the sixth time Classic Albums Live has come to Lowell with previous concerts featuring two Beatles albums (“Abbey Road”, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”), Pink Floyd (“The Wall”), Queen (“A Night at the Opera”) and The Eagles (“Hotel California”). The unique aspect of Classic Albums Live shows is that a group of musicians recreates the chosen album in its entirety.

Fleetwood Mac’s album “Rumors” sold over 10 million copies worldwide in the first month after its release and has sold over 40 million copies since then. It features the massive hits “Go Your Own Way”, “Dreams”, “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun” (along with “The Chain” and “Gold Dust Woman”), and won the album from the year at the 1977 Grammy Awards.

Madeleine Peyroux COURTESY LOWELL SUMMER MUSIC SERIES

Peyroux is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his 1996 debut album, “Dreamland”, which earned comparisons with Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. The album included contributions from Marc Ribot, Vernon Reid, Cyrus Chestnut and many more. This included her rendition of “Gettin ‘Some Fun Out of Life” by Holiday, “Lovesick Blues” by Bessie Smith and “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself a Letter” by Fats Waller.

Subsequent albums included covers by Bob Dylan (“I Threw It All Away”), Leonard Cohen (“Dance Me to the End of Love”) and Lennon / McCartney (“Martha My Dear”). Her music was used in the Oscar-winning film “The Shape of Water”, worthy of the respect she earned during her career.

Jazz shows don’t often take place in Lowell, so this is a one-off concert for Boarding House Park.

Tickets are now on sale for $ 39 (in advance) and premium seats for $ 139.

Lowell Summer Music Series officials said they are already scheduling dates for at least two more shows.

“I think we can build a solid lineup again,” said Peter Aucella, General Manager of the Lowell Summer Music Series, adding that they have other offers for next summer as well.

Knowing how great the Lowell Summer Music Series is every year, the smart money goes to Aucella and her team for success.
