It’s only the first week of June, and already Live Nation has presented three killer concerts as part of the promoter’s summer season at Saratoga Performing Arts Center. First it was The Lumineers on May 29, who kicked off their set with a series of “like, five bangers” (“Brightside,” “Cleopatra,” “Ho Hey,” “Flowers in Your Hair” and “Angela”), as one fan at the show described it. Then perennial SPAC favorite Zac Brown Band took the stage on June 2 for an epic night that included classics “Knee Deep,” “Chicken Fried” and “Keep Me In Mind.” Robert Plant and Alison Kraus followed that act the following night to round out an opening trio of shows that rival any previous SPAC season. Check out the gallery at the top of the page to see photos from the first two shows, captured by photographer Francesco D’Amico.
And there’s more where that came from: After stand-up comedian John Mulaney graces the stage this Friday, live music will return on Saturday with a sure-to-be rocking Train concert.
