Usually the concert action slows down to something of a trickle at The Egg during the summertime rather than trying to compete with SPAC, Tanglewood and all the myriad summer-only venues and concert series.
Tickets for all three new, new shows are currently available exclusively to members of The Egg and will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday (April 14).
Here are the details:

Since their chart-topping songs like “Fadeaway,” “Only Love,” and “Dreams” won them the Rolling Stone Readers’ Poll for Best New American Band in 1987, BoDeans have remained true to their sound and style, and their heartland roots-rock sound. They’re celebrating their 30th anniversary with a new album, Thirteen (due out on April 21).

Chicago blues icon Buddy Guy – ranked 30th in Rolling Stone’s list of “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” – returns to The Egg with his electrifying show. Still going strong at the age of 80, he was honored with his seventh Grammy Award in 2016 for his most recent album, Born to Play Guitar.
