Tickets are going fast for other shows in zoo's 35th year of summer concerts
If you want to see a concert at the Oregon Zoo this summer, you might want to act fast. The June 29 performance by Old Crow Medicine Show has already sold out, and tickets are going quickly for the rest of the lineup too.
As the zoo prepares to launch its 35th season of outdoor summer concerts this weekend, shows by John Prine, Ziggy Marley, Huey Lewis and the News, the B-52s and Go-Go's, and Lyle Lovett are all close to selling out.
The zoo's 2013 summer concert series kicks off with Prine on June 22 and winds up with the Doobie Brothers in early September. In addition to the artists mentioned above, concertgoers can catch performances by "Weird Al" Yankovic, Randy Newman, LeAnn Rimes, Indigo Girls, Trombone Shorty, Lee Brice, Los Lobos, Chris Isaak and more.

In a new offering this year, concert tickets will be good for zoo admission all day on the date of the show. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted; not every show has an opening act, so fans should make sure to arrive on time to make sure they don't miss part of the show.
