Two more shows have been added to the Summer Concert Series at the Ironstone Amphitheatre outside Murphys.
Country music superstar Toby Keith performs with a special guest yet to be named on June 9 and the Moody Blues appears June 18.
Keith burst onto the country scene in 1993 with the release of “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” which turned out to be the most-played country track on the radio in the 1990s. Since his debut he has charted more than 20 No. 1 songs, including “Beer for My Horses” (a duet with Willie Nelson released in 2003) and “As Good as I Once Was” (2005), which both were at No. 1 for six weeks. He has sold more than 40 million albums.
The Moody Blues is celebrating 50 years of hit-making with this year’s “Days of Future Passed” 50th anniversary tour. The British band emerged in the late 1960s as a progressive rock legend and the act has sold more than 70 million albums. The band’s biggest hit is probably “Nights in White Satin.”
Already on the bill for the venue are John Mellencamp and Emmylou Harris performing on June 17 with Carlene Carter opening the show, and the Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton are slated to appear on Aug. 13.
Tickets for the Keith and Moody Blues shows go on sale Thursday. Tickets for all the shows are sold at ironstoneamphitheatre.net or call 800-745-3000.
