The beloved annual summer concert series at the Hyatt's intimate Back Bay Amphitheatre in Newport Beach, a one-of-a-kind venue set in a coastal garden setting, kicks off Friday through October. The Bank of the West Summer Concert Series at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach presents another incredible season of world-class music, fine wines and gourmet dining. And, the concert series supports JDRF! A number of premium seats have been reserved to help fund critical research for type 1 diabetes.
On Friday, June 24 the summer concert series starts with The Bacon Brothers, Michael & Kevin Bacon, and continues with 13 more Friday evening concerts through October 14. The lineup includes musical icon Smokey Robinson, pop hitmaker Kenny Loggins, legendary jazz vocalist Al Jarreau, the "hippie with soul" Allen Stone, and contemporary jazz stars Boney James, Brian Culbertson and Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers.
Before each concert, you can pre-purchase a gourmet dinner buffet at the Hyatt's signature restaurant, SHOR American Seafood Grill, featuring fresh-from-the-docks daily specials. SHOR focuses on simple, fresh ingredients - a perfect dining option to start the evening.
Tickets are available for individual shows or season passes. Season Passes include tickets to all fourteen shows throughout the concert series, plus exclusive VIP benefits, including assigned premium seating, complimentary valet service, and access to the VIP Hospitality Suite with hors d'oeuvres and beverages.
