One of the very best things about summer in Lake Tahoe is the variety of live music that will be playing in and around South Shore – from the beaches, parks, concert venues and clubs. There is something for everyone to enjoy – even for us 40 somethings who come of age in the 80′s.
Among the most popular and most anticipated event is the Summer Concert Series held at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena. Like most other locals I appreciate the tourists who pack this venue and enable our small Tahoe town to embrace such performers as Journey and the Steve Miller Band, The Eagles, Boston with the Doobie Brothers and Aerosmith with Slash. Those were of course my favorites. Other acts include Sarah McCLachlan, Carrie Underwood, The Zac Brown Band, Lady Gaga, Train and Bruno Mars. I truly enjoy the vibe of this venue. Outside, just one block off of Lake Tahoe – the sun setting in the distance….it makes you appreciate not only the amazing talent you are there to see – but the natural beauty surrounding you. Some of my most favorite Lake Tahoe concerts held at this venue include Journey, Alice Cooper and KISS!
If you are in South Lake Tahoe on Thursday evenings you will want to check out the music at Lakeview Commons. This venue was designed to provide a community experience and it often features local musicians. There are local food vendors, a beer garden and even a bike valet. The best part – it’s Free! The Concerts are weekly from June 26-August 28th. For a complete lineup and more details check out Live at Lakeview Summer Music Series!
