Big events coming to the Pershing Center

A couple of big outdoor concerts are coming to Lincoln this summer.

They're going to be held at the Pinewood Bowl Theatre at Pioneers Park. Crosby Still and Nash will perform there on August 8th.

B.B. King takes the stage on August 16th. Organizers say the decisions by city leaders allow alcohol sales at certain outdoor events, helps bring in musical acts.

“It's a great opportunity for the people of Lincoln. It's also a great draw for people all around the state, and from all around the Midwest co come and see artists they would never get to see otherwise in a great setting,” said Tom Lorenz, General Manager at the Pershing Center.

In addition to Crosby, Still and Nash, and B.B. King, more summer concerts are expected to be announced soon.
