End of Summer Concert Series lineup announced
By Andrea Kszystyniak / World-Herald staff writer


The end of summer is getting closer, but Friday nights at Midtown Crossing are just starting to heat up.

An End of Summer Concert Series presented by the University of Nebraska at Omaha and held at Turner Park, will include a little bit of everything: some opera, country, blues and a bit of old fashioned rock 'n' roll.

Summer concert veteran Billy McGuigan returns this year to start off the series with his own brand of rock covers.

American Idol fans will be happy to see Tim Halperin, an Omaha native and a contestant on season 10. Opera Omaha, The Sugar Thieves and many more artists will also be taking the stage during the six-week-long series.

All concerts are free and open to the public. Turner Park opens at 5 p.m. Opening performers from UNO will take the stage at 6:30 p.m., and the headliners will come on at 7 p.m.

The lineup:

Aug. 23: Billy McGuigan

Aug. 30: American Idol contestant Tim Halperin

Sept. 6: Charlie Worsham and Eric Paslay

Sept. 13: Opera Omaha

Sept. 20: Chris McCarty

Sept. 27: The Sugar Thieves
