Inside or Outdoors, Worcester’s Summer Concert Lineup Offers Something for Everyone

WORCESTER – The weather is warming and the city is buzzing with the songs of summer.

Worcester is an unsung hub for musical events and this summer is filled with unforgettable concerts you won’t want to miss.

The Worcester Palladium is bringing rhythm to the city with rapOn June 7, the Palladium is welcoming the “rap devil,” Machine Gun Kelly, who dissed Eminem’s diss track with his single, Rap Devil. As an actor in movies like Nerve and Bird Box, Machine Gun Kelly will surely give an entertaining performance.

The following night, June 8, another rap artist will take the stage – Tech N9ne. His song, “Speedom”, which features Eminem, truly describes his fast paced rapping style. These two artists are vastly different, but they will both put on amazing shows.

Music lovers will have a difficult decision to make on June 8 —  since the very same weekend the DCU Center is hosting the pop group, Pentatonix. This creative a capella group has won three Grammy Awards for their creative covers of popular pop, country, and Christmas songs.

Relive the ‘90s for a night at the Worcester Palladium — On June 28, Bowling for Soup and Reel Big Fish are joining together to put on a real big concert. Their unique styles and alternative rock will make you nostalgic for their firsts hits, but they will also be playing the catchy songs from their newer albums.
