The annual free Memorial Park concert has another headliner.
Isaak is best known for the love song “Wicked Game,” but much of his material, including “Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” and “Somebody’s Crying,” feature a classic rock sound more like Elvis or Roy Orbison. Isaak has also acted in numerous TV shows and movies.
Isaak and Little Steven will play the concert at Memorial Park on June 28. Omaha cover band The Firm will open the show, and a fireworks show will follow.
