Live Music Is Back for the Summer With the Bands War and The Beach Boys

Live Music Is Back for the Summer With the Bands War and The Beach Boys

  |     |   Local Events

We are excited that summer is in full swing and live music is happening again right here in Elk Grove Village!

Nothing screams summer like concerts out in the open air, especially when you get to hear classic bands play right here in Elk Grove. The Mid-Summer Classics Concert Series is back in 2021, with concerts happening Tuesday nights on the Village Green.

While Loverboy was set to play this week, the band could not make it into the US due to Covid restrictions. In lieu of this news, the band War will be taking their place this coming Tuesday, July 20th. 

This concert is part of Elk Grove’s Mid-Summer Classics Concert Series, which also includes another concert by the world-famous Beach Boys on July 27th.
