Coming to Tanglewood this summer: Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five, Guster, Grace Potter, Josh Ritter, Joan Baez, Indigo Girls
But, you know, not all on the same day.
Tanglewood has announced a trio of new shows for this summer:
July 24: Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five, Guster
There's a late-90s version of a lot of people who would be pretty excited about this show. Also, every online tickets a copy of the BNL album. Tickets: $27.50-$79.50
Tickets for all three shows go on sale to the general public March 25 online or via phone (888-266-1200).
The NPR quiz show Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me will be recording at Tanglewood August 29 (a Thursday, at 8 pm). Tickets start at $21 -- they go on sale to the general public February 19. (We're guessing this has a pretty good chance of selling out.)
The idea of an "NPR quiz show" might sound something less than thrilling, like someone trying to argue that a bowl of oatmeal is entertaining (maybe steel cut...). But Wait, Wait is actually funny and entertaining. The host Peter Sagal is quick, the panelists are usually good, and the show has a way of turning up unexpectedly funny moments. (We still smile when thinking about the time a listener contestant picked the word "spork" instead of "fork" in a limerick challenge. Yep, it sounds unbearably public radio -- but it was really funny.)
