The summer 2024 concert calendar is shaping up quite nicely, and many big names will make Bethel Woods, the site of historic Woodstock '69, a primary stop on the tour.

Names like Limp Bizkit, Alanis Morisette with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, James Taylor, Santana and Counting Crows, Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top, and that's just scratching the surface.

Personally, the show i'm most excited about will happen Thursday, June 27th, and features a few of the artists that have helped shape my passion for music: Hootie & The Blowfish, Collective Soul, Edwin McCain.

2024 is also a big anniversary for Collective Soul, as it marks 30 years of the band that brought us so many songs that we've been singing along to for so long like Heavy, Heaven Let Your Light Shine Down, and of course, Shine.

11 Highlights of Bethel Woods Last Concert of The Season

Bethel Woods Last Concert Of The Season Ended With Rod Stewart.

Rod Stewart took the stage at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on September 1, 2023. Cheap Trick opened the show for Rod Stewart.

Thousands of fans gathered on site to enjoy a warm summer night at a peaceful venue while soaking up the last concert of the season.

Rod Stewart's performance was incredible, it reminded me of a Las Vegas show. For over 2 hours, Rod Stewart sang, danced, changed outfits, chatted with the crowd and had remarkable singers, dancers and musicians also join him on stage.
