Weekend Entertainment | Tina Turner Tribute and Rock Fest in Youngstown

With the Canfield Fair opening Wednesday, summer is nearing its end. Better squeeze in a vacation while there’s still time.

For those who are not leaving town this weekend, there are a few fun events on the docket.

Sheena B and the 445s will perform their tribute to the late, great Tina Turner this evening at the Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre. The show, which starts at 7 p.m., is free and part of the Night Out for Neighborhoods program.

Turner died in May, leaving behind a legacy that stands with any rock or pop superstar. That’s what makes tonight’s show extra interesting.

On Saturday, check out The Block Party at B&O Station, 530 Mahoning Ave., near downtown Youngstown. The outdoor rock fest features an excellent lineup of bands. Music will begin at 6 p.m. with Black Wolf & The Thief, followed by Madame Marlowe, Ohayo, Spirit of the Bear and Unc D. Admission is $15 at the door or $10 in advance. Click HERE.

Sunday is National Cinema Day, and the Valley’s multiplexes are taking part. Prices will be slashed to $4 that day for all movies. Summer blockbusters “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” are still playing at every theater, and so is “Strays,” “Blue Beetle” and “Haunted Mansion.”

Looking for live music? Earth to Mars (a Bruno Mars tribute act) and The Prince Project will be at Eastwood Field on Friday evening. Click HERE.

The Warren Community Amphitheatre’s River Rock series will feature a double bill of Zoso (Led Zeppelin tribute) and Harvest (Neil Young) on Saturday. Click HERE.

And on Sunday, ’70s pop rockers The Sweet (“Ballroom Blitz”) and Angel will come to the Robins Theatre in Warren. Click HERE.
