Hot summer at Meadowbrook

The summer season of shows at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavillion at Meadowbrook is approaching fast and there are a lot of great shows coming up.

Becky Burke, the Gilford concert venue’s director of marketing, talked about a few of the many acts she’s excited about.

“We’re definitely psyched about having James Taylor here. He’s such a legendary act that we haven’t had before,” Burke said. “Tickets are going fast.”

An Evening With James Taylor and his All-Star Band will take place on July 14.

“We’re psyched about Kings of Leon,” Burke continued. “It’s a high-caliber act. They’re sold out in Boston.”

Kings of Leon takes the stage at The Meadowbrook on Aug. 26 as part of the Mechanical Bull tour.

“We’re excited about Skrillex,” she said. “That’s an EDM show, we’ve never had an electronic dance show here before.”

Skrillex, with the Mothership Tour 2014, will be onstage June 4. Also performing are DJ Snake, What So Not, and Milo & Otis.

“And the Zac Brown Band. We anticipate that selling out, as well,” she added.

The Aug. 16 performance by the Zac Brown Band already sold out, but there are seats available for Aug. 17.
