In what would have marked the halfway point in another robust amphitheater series except for COVID-19, Meijer Gardens’ John VanderHaagen offers up a Top 10 playlist of artists who’ve played the summer series — and one act he’d love to see there. Check out the list and listen to songs from each of the featured performers.
As feared by many fans, the high-profile 2020 amphitheater shows won’t take place, but a ‘modified’ Tuesday Evening Music Club series featuring regional stars might be possible.
