As soon as I heard that B.B. King and Willie Nelson are coming to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach (Alabama) area I knew I have to be at the concert to experience these two legends in person. Actually Willie Nelson performed last year at the same venue - The Amphitheater at The Wharf - so I was not so surprised that he is returning, but I admit I am amazed that B.B. King will join him for a performance on Saturday, July 26.
The Amphitheater at The Wharf, just north of Gulf Shores, is so convenient for our vacationers, local residents and the surrounding area since it is adjacent to the Foley Beach Express. Even in the heat of the summer this outdoor entertainment complex seems to be constructed in a manner that pulls in the breezes off the Intercoastal Waterway to cool the crowds. At least that is what I experienced a few weeks ago at the Rick Springfield and Eddie Money concert. Cool attire is never an issue since our laid back resort atmosphere on Alabama's Gulf Coast means that shorts are almost always appropriate for any day or evening adventure.
Other artists performing this summer include Lee Greenwood, Brooks & Dunn, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Journey, Heart & Cheap Trick and Sugarland. Meyer Real Estate's website provides calendar of events that is helpful in coordinating your vacation with upcoming summer concerts at The Wharf. Search online for the perfect vacation rental condo or beach house and actually make your summer reservation online, or call one of our vacation specialists for assistance. Just make sure you don't miss the entertainment we now have on our beautiful coast.
