This summer, the weekend entertainment starts a few days early with the return of the City of Temecula’s annual Summer Sunset Concert Series, every Thursday evening in June and July.

On stage at the Temecula Amphitheater at the Community Recreation Center, the concerts are free and open to all ages. Gates open at 5:00 pm to claim your spot on the hill. Shows begin at 7:00 pm and will end by 8:30 pm; just in time to make it to a late movie with your date, or home for the kiddo’s bath and bed time.

Shows in June include a variety of different musical genre bands. The June summer concerts include:

June 11: Y3K Band (dance music from the 80’s to today)
June 18: Smokin’ Cobras (spanning several genres including oldies, eighties, surf, country, etc.)
June 25: Stone Soul (classic soul)

In July, the Summer Sunset Concert Series plays tribute to some of the greatest bands of all time. The schedule includes:

July 2: Escape (Journey National Tribute Experience) *pictured above
July 9: Turn the Page (Bob Seger tribute)
July 16: Mick Adams & the Stones (Rolling Stones tribute)
July 23: Heart to Heart (Heart tribute band)
July 30: Bella Donna (Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks tribute)

Those heading out to the Summer Sunset Concert Series are encouraged to bring a picnic meal, blankets and chairs but please note that no alcohol or pets, other than service dogs, will be allowed in the amphitheater.
