Nestled among the towering trees of Glen Chamberlin Park in Twinsburg, the Perici Amphitheatre provides the ideal setting for the Rock the Park summer concerts. Situated in the middle of 72-acre Glenn Chamberlin Park, the venue has a maximum capacity of 1,500 people. The 1,150 square-foot, covered stage can easily accommodate a rock-n-roll concert or large orchestra, providing audiences of all ages an intimate concert experience. The recessed dance pit, immediately in front the stage, is always a crowd favorite, making for a memorable concert experience.
Concerts are open to all ages and take place rain or shine, with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the opening act starting at 7:00 p.m. Tickets range in price from $10 for lawn seats, to $40 for the VIP patio, and can be purchased in advance here. Please note that ticket prices increase the day of the show or at the gate on the night of the show (at an additional charge). VIP tickets include appetizers, two drink tickets at a private bar, VIP parking and usage of a chair during the show. Since the venue is outdoors, those purchasing lawn seating should bring a blanket or chair. Beer, wine and food is available, as such, no outside food or beverages are permitted.
The Cleveland Pops Orchestra performed on July 3 to a sold-out crowd. The evening culminated with fireworks to celebrate the season. On July 10, Michael Stanley took the stage, to the delight of MSB fans of all ages. Backed by members of his road band the Resonators, they played fan favorites, plus new, eclectic material from Stanley’s new album entitled “And Then…” “I guess it springs from growing up in the same timeframe as rock n’ roll and being knocked out by all the different styles that led to that musical melting pot,” said Stanley. “Because of that, I rarely sit down to write a certain ‘type’ of song…whatever happens happens…and although that can be a marketing man’s nightmare, it keeps me interested and, hopefully, growing as a writer.”
The next show, on July 24, will feature a double headlining event with both Disco Inferno and 1988 rocking the stage. Fans are encouraged to dress in their favorite disco duds or 80s attire and be prepared to dance the night away. So, dig out some bell-bottoms or dust off your platform shoes and get ready to boogey with Disco Inferno. Or, peg your trusty acid washed jeans or slip into some parachute pants to dance to the 80s rock of the band 1988.
If Bon Jovi and Journey are more your speed, you’ll want to check out the bands playing on August 14. Wanted, a Bon Jovi tribute band, will be headlining. Come experience fan favorites including “Runaway,” “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Wanted: Dead or Alive,” and more. Wanted uses no vocal tracks or sampling, giving fans a true Bon Jovi concert experience. Wanted will play an extensive mix of Bon Jovi rock and love songs, appealing to generations of music lovers.
Next up that same night is Escape, a Journey tribute band. Focusing on the ‘Steve Perry era’, Escape covers all the hits from ‘Lights’ and ‘Wheel In The Sky’ to ‘Separate Ways’ and ‘Be Good To Yourself’ including occasional surprises for the die-hard Journey fans. So, for countless Journey fans who didn’t stop believing, Escape will take the stage just the same way, and welcome fans back with open arms.
