Tickets went on sale this morning for concerts taking place next May at the long-running Holland festival, which aims to add variety as well as ‘appeal to a younger spectrum’ of fans.
Aiming to “appeal across generations,” add more variety to the festival’s musical lineup and spotlight regional talent, Holland’s Tulip Time in 2018 will boast performances by The Beach Boys, Joshua Davis, Liverpool Legends, Jake Kershaw, The Texas Tenors and more.
And it hasn’t taken long for fans to respond.
Tulip Time 2018 tickets went on sale this morning and Susan Zalnis, the festival’s marketing, media relations and entertainment director, said there’s overwhelming interest in The Beach Boys, who will play Central Wesleyan Church in Holland on May 11.
“The Beach Boys are already selling like crazy and our phones haven’t stopped ringing since 9 a.m.,” Zalnis said, adding that she’s also excited about the Liverpool Legends Beatles tribute which plays Tulip Time on May 10. (Beach Boys tickets range from $65-$75; details online here.)
“What I think is really fun about Liverpool Legends is that Louise Harrison, the sister of George Harrison of The Beatles, hand-picked these guys for the group. The Beach Boys and The Beatles music is popular across all ages, which is really fun.”
In an effort to showcase current and local talent, Tulip Time also created the “Nights at the Knick” series that organizers hope will “appeal to a younger spectrum” of fans.
That series, taking place May 10-12 at the Knickerbocker Theatre in Holland, will feature northern Michigan singer-songwriter Joshua Davis, Grand Rapids’ River City Improv comedy troupe, and Marshall blues-guitar sensation Jake Kershaw. Both Davis and Kershaw are promoting brand new albums.
“We also love that all three are Michigan talent,” Zalnis said.
Tulip Time’s entertainment offerings also will include The Texas Tenors, who made a splash on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” eight years ago, New Odyssey and FiddleFire.
