About the Bands
Tedeschi Trucks Band with special guest Charlie Parr
Now in their eighth year, Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band has earned its reputation as one of the premier live acts touring today. The 12-piece ensemble is led by the husband-and-wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and guitarist-singer Susan Tedeschi.
For the last four decades, Blondie has become and remains a true national treasure; one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. From an irreverent Lower East Side punk outfit to bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool, Blondie will forever be synonymous with that punk spirit that lives somewhere in all of us.
O.A.R. – Just Like Paradise Tour with special guest Matt Nathanson
Appearing for the first time together at Meijer Gardens, the “Just Like Paradise Tour” presents a unique opportunity to see these favorite acts performing on the same night. O.A.R. (short for Of a Revolution) transformed itself from an independent college band to a Billboard chart-topper over the course of a long, varied career. The roots-and-reggae band has transcended jam band clichés to become one of the most popular live acts touring today, while Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the most applauded songwriters and engaging performers on the music scene today.
