The 2007 Summer Concert Series at The Toledo Zoo looks to be one of the most entertaining yet, featuring acts such as Bob Dylan, Steely Dan, Sheryl Crow, Bryan Adams, and the Moody Blues.
It looks as though concert tickets will be difficult to come by for some shows, as Steely Dan has already sold out. The Paul Simon concert I attended last year at the Toledo Zoo amphitheater was remarkable, and the acoustics at this venue are solid.
I am torn about shows that I might attend; I have seen Steely Dan and the Moody Blues before, enjoying both, but I have yet to see Dylan perform live. Then again, Dylan can be an inconsistent performer, and I would hate to shell out $160 for a pair of tickets if he went out and ground out a paint-by-numbers 60-minute set.
If I settle on one, at the moment it would be seeing Walter Becker and Donald Fagen again, as I very much enjoyed seeing them in 2003 at Pine Knob.
Do any of these shows strike your fancy?
