Muskegon has announced that it will host a three-day sesquicentennial celebration at Heritage Landing in mid-July starring Gretchen Wilson, Kansas, Freddie Jackson, Warrant and Bret Michaels.
The “Muskegon’s 150th Celebration” will take place July 11-13, kicking off Thursday night with R&B singer Freddie Jackson, who scored hits in the 1980s with “Have You Ever Loved Somebody,” “Jam Tonight” and “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake).” Local bands are also expected to be added to Thursday’s bill as well as to Saturday’s lineup.
The festival continues July 12 with performances by award-winning country singer Gretchen Wilson, classic rock/prog-rock band Kansas and singer-songwriter Jessie G, and concludes on July 13 with sets by hard-rock acts Bret Michaels and Warrant.
In a prepared statement, Muskegon Mayor Steve Gawron said 150 years as a city is “a huge reason to celebrate.”
Three-day passes cost $50; one-day admission for Saturday or Sunday is $30; Thursday admission is $10.
Tickets are available online starting March 23 via StarTickets.com. Tickets also will be available for sale at the “Blues & Barbeque Presented by Taste of Muskegon” at the Muskegon Farmers Market starting at 5 p.m. March 23.
