Must See Concerts in June in Kansas City

With the summer months fast approaching, it is time to begin planning out your seasonal activities. Although there are plenty of festivals, movie nights, art displays and water fun, nothing really says “Summer’s Here” like a solid concert. With the Kansas City Concerts schedule fully loaded, you need to sift through the listing in order to find the right shows for your taste and musical style.

Chris Botti at Midland
Fans of The Police and Sting are sure to know Chris Botti as the energetic and exceptionally talented trumpeter who formerly worked with the rock legend. So whether you just enjoy easy jazz and incredible performances, or want to see the man who decided to break away from Sting, Chris Botti is taking the Stage in Midland on May 11th.

Do you love to dance? Do you enjoy getting down with the best of the song, regardless of who is performing and what song is playing? If so, Dancefestopia is the event for you. Taking place on June first and second at Riverfront Park, this event on the Kansas City Concerts series is a music see. There is a lineup of over 50 artists, with many coming from the area while others originate in other countries, so the variety of music played here is unmatched. Two-day passes begin at $99, while VIP tickets start at $150. It is also possible to purchase camping passes for $50 if you don’t even want to go home in between nights.

The rock band is back after several years of rest and is taking the country by storm. The band’s Kansas City Concerts is sure to be sold out, so if you want to catch the show, make sure to buy your tickets before the June 5 concert at Sprint Center. On top of Nickleback, if you decide to catch the show you are also entertained by openers Bush and Seether.

Kenney Chesney
For the ultimate country fan, this is the night for you. On June 10 at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs (so you know
they are expecting a huge turnout), Kenney Chesney  is taking the stage on only with country singing legend Tim McGraw, but also Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. This is sure to be an incredible night of music. So if you are a country fan, this is a can’t miss, as the likelihood of these musicians touring together again, or stepping foot for Kansas City Concerts again is unlikely.

Jazz in the Woods
Sometimes, nothing helps melt the stress away like a solid jazz rendition. With jazz, the music is almost always familiar, yet completely unexpected at the same time. You may have heard the same song hundreds of times, just not in the same way the current performer is laying it out in front of you. So if you are a fan of the genre, Jazz in the Woods is an excellent opportunity to check out touring musicians at Corporate Woods in Overland Park. This two day event begins on June 15 and ends on the 16th. Make sure to bring a lawn chair or something to sit on.

REO Speedwagonstarlight
For the old school rock and roll fan, REO Speedwagon is performing alongside Styx and Ted Nugent at Starlight Theatre on June 21. Whether you enjoy one act or all three, this is sure to be a fun night, full of reminiscing as to where you were when you first heard a particular song and how your life has changed since these musicians toured the country regularly as main, headlining acts.
