The 2020 Summer Concert Series at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys, which is produced by Berkeley’s Another Planet Entertainment, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Acts set to perform this year included Phish, Kenny Chesney, Kid Rock and Bob Dylan.
“This is the first time in its 18-year history of world-class entertainment in Lake Tahoe that the Summer Concert Series will take a hiatus,” said Brad Belhouse, regional president, Northern Nevada and Laughlin of Caesars Entertainment. “Following guidance from public health officials, we have decided to postpone the series normally scheduled through the summer season.”
Two of the acts have already been rescheduled for 2021 — Phish (July 20-21, 2021) and Dierks Bentley (Aug. 22, 2021) — while Slightly Stoopid, Kenny Chesney (two shows), Old Dominion and Rascal Flatts are currently listed as postponed, with no new dates yet attached.
The Bob Dylan and Kid Rock dates have been canceled.
Organizers and fans alike look forward to this popular series returning in 2021.
“The series has featured over 175 shows with over 1.2 million attendees, including the likes of Elton John, Keith Urban, The Eagles, Stevie Wonder, Dave Matthews Band, Journey, Carrie Underwood, Aerosmith, Blake Shelton, Bruno Mars, James Taylor, The Who and Lady Gaga,” said Sherry Wasserman, president & co-founder of Another Planet Entertainment. “Like all of you, we are so sad not to be able to bring concerts this summer to the Lake, but we look forward to next summer 2021 when we can all enjoy the music again.”
