Weekend Entertainment | Holiday Brings a Lot of Options

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and it will get the outdoor summer concert season off to a strong start with a show by modern country stars Brothers Osborne.

The show begins at 7 p.m. Friday at Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre.

Brothers Osborne, who are the duo of real-life brothers John and TJ Osborne, have been racking up the accolades of late. They took home the Grammy for Best Country Performance earlier this year, to go with their armful of CMA and ACM trophies.

Tickets range from $98 to $35.50 (plus fees); click HERE.

The River Rock at the Amp series also begins this weekend. First up is Straight On, a tribute to classic rockers Heart. The show starts at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Warren Community Amphitheatre with opening act Jersey.  For information, click HERE.

A very special concert at The Robins Theatre on Sunday evening will honor and celebrate the late, great Michael Stanley. Members of Stanley’s band The Resonators, and former bandmate and songwriter Jonah Koslen, will perform songs from Stanley’s beloved catalog. The 7:30 p.m. concert will begin with a performance by The Vindys. For tickets, click HERE.

Three shows will be performed on area community theater stages. These include the Valley premieres of “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” at Hopewell Theatre, and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at The Youngstown Playhouse.

Rust Belt Theater’s original musical “Madhouse” is in its second and final weekend.

Before celebrating Memorial Day on Monday with a cookout, be sure to pay tribute to our fallen defenders. The annual Memorial Day parade will begin at 10 a.m.  at Boardman Center middle school and proceed north on Market Street to Route 224, where it will turn east to Boardman Park. A service will take place at 11 a.m. at the park’s Maag amphitheater.
