Since selling out 15 shows in the opening April salvo of sales to Meijer Gardens members, the outdoor amphitheater now also has sold out upcoming appearances by Amos Lee with Neal Francis (June 17), Trey Anastasio (June 20), Old Crow Medicine Show (June 23), The Temptations with Kimmie Horne (June 26) and The Decemberists (Aug. 16).
Overall, Meijer Gardens has sold more than 54,000 tickets for its summer season since April 23, representing 86 percent of all available tickets in the series, said John VanderHaagen, communications director.
“No glitches or problems in terms of ticket sales, and no complaints other than the usual complaints about how we handle our member pre-sale and not holding back tickets for the public on-sale,” VanderHaagen said, noting Meijer Gardens did see a spike in membership signups prior to the April pre-sale.
During that pre-sale, Meijer Gardens members bought up all the tickets for 11 concerts within two hours, starting with Norah Jones (July 17), Goo Goo Dolls (Sept. 15) and Foreigner (Sept. 18).
Several other concerts, he said, are now close to selling out, including Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown, Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, Rick Springfield with the Grand Rapids Symphony, Buddy Guy and John Hiatt, Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Umphrey’s McGee.
Tickets also still remain for the opening June 12 show starring Blind Boys of Alabama and Marc Cohn, as well Bela Fleck/Sam Bush/Jerry Douglas, Corinne Bailey Rae/The War and Treaty, Arturo Sandoval with the Grand Rapids Symphony, The Dead South/Tejon Street Corner Thieves, She & Him and The Australian Pink Floyd Show.
