Tickets will be available at these locations until all the tickets are distributed. BOB-FM has worked with the Andover Chamber of Commerce in securing the ticket distribution sites. Doug Downs, BOB-FM General Manager says the support has been immense from local businesses, "Everyone we've talked to wants to be a part of this exciting event. This is a great community, filled with civically-minded people and businesses."
The summer concert in the park stemmed from the desire of the Andover CVB to build a permanent outdoor amphitheater in Central Park. The CVB decided in late 2012 the best way to gauge interest in the project would be to host a free concert. If the event is successful, the group will continue to move forward in recommending plans to the Andover City Council to build an amphitheater in Central Park. A display about the proposed amphitheater will at the 6/22 event.
