Three big names will take the stage Saturday night at the outdoor venue as the first of the four concerts to take place at the theater this summer.

REO Speedwagon, Styx and Ted Nugent will kick off this years Pinewood Bowl summer concert series.

The stage at Pioneer's Park will be lit up Saturday night and thousands of fans will fill the seats and organizers are expecting a big turnout.

"REO Speedwagon and Styx are iconic bands from the 70s and 80s and Ted Nugent certainly has established a name for himself socially and politically so you know, our sales are good," Derek Andersen, Marketing Director of the Pershing Center said.

Here are a couple reminders for anyone planning on going to the Pinewood Bowl this concert season:

-Parking lots will open at 4 p.m. and people are encouraged to carpool and use the west entrance of Pioneers Park.

-For any tailgaters, no alcohol is allowed inside the park but it will be for sale in the theater for anyone 21 and older.

-No smoking inside the venue. An area will be set up outside the gates.

Lincoln Police say they want concert goers to have a safe and fun time but they will be ticketing anyone caught breaking the law.

Organizers say they are expecting at least four thousand fans at the show Saturday night.  The venue can hold up to 5,500 people, and seats are already filling up fast for all the concerts this summer.

"All of our shows this year have surpassed sales of our smallest show last year so we are tracking way ahead of our 2012 season."

Tickets are still available for Saturday night's show featuring REO Speedwagon, Styx and Ted Nugent. Those range from $36 to $175.  You can get those at any Ticketmaster location or at the Pinewood Bowl box office before the show.
