Lyle Lovett Returns to Lowell This Summer!

I am thrilled to be able to announce that Lyle Lovett and His Large Band returns to perform at the 26th season of the Lowell Summer Music Series! on Friday, August  7!

“A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums.  Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers.  Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television.  Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

“Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.”

We are lucky that Francine Reed will join the band once again this summer!

Tickets for the Lyle Lovett and His Large Band show are priced at $52 in advance (fee-free!), $60 on the day of the show (if available), and children 12 and under are always free courtesy of Eastern Bank. There are also premium seats – beach chairs are provided by the Series – set in two rows directly in front of the stage for $152.  These are the same prices as those for the band’s first appearance at the Series in 2010! Tickets are now on sale through Lowell Summer Music Series.

For those of you who are unaware of the  Series, or if you are aware of it but have never attended a show there, it is an outdoor (weather permitting) concert series held on National Park Service grounds in Lowell, Massachusetts. The Series is not-for-profit, which helps keep the ticket prices reasonable.

Surrounding Boarding House Park are old mill buildings, part of the Lowell National Historical Park, which you can tour if you arrive early enough. They provide an unusual setting for an evening of great music and ambiance.

The Series generally runs from late June to early September.

This Series is dear to my heart. I have been a season pass holder since 2007 and it is one of the highlights of the year (and of summer in particular) for me. Many lasting friendships have been made there. I expect this will be another excellent year!

I will post additional announcements for the Series as they are made.

Shows announced to date are:

June 20 (Saturday) – Ani DiFranco

July 31 (Friday) – The Official Blues Brothers Revue

August 7 (Friday) – Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!

  1. I just bought tix to see Lyle Lovett with Vince Gill at Concord Center of the Arts. I think they are performing solo. I didn’t think he would be doing his large band this year. Which show do you think will be better?

    • They’ll be different Steve. I’d do both. I’m still on the fence about the Capital Center show. I love Vince too and think they’ll be fabulous together. It’s hard for me to get there on a weekday night and get up for work the next day…
