NBC’s 17th annual TODAY Summer Concert Series kicks off (appropriately) … today! If you’re an early bird and in Manhattan on any Friday this summer, head down to Rockefeller Plaza around 6 a.m. to stake out your spot for a free live show. Usher is the first on the all-star roster of performers, which also includes Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Train and Jason Mraz.
The Toyota Summer Concert Series is getting seriously social this year, and organizers are encouraging concert attendees to tweet with the hashtag #TODAYconcerts and Instagram photos from the shows. In between belting out the lyrics to “U Remind Me,” of course. Responses and photos will then be featured on TODAY.com. TODAY has also created a number of specialized Pandora stations that feature the artists in the upcoming concert series.
Will you be going to any of the shows this year? Let us know in the comments!
