Live From Central Park SummerStage To Be Broadcast In New York

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — For the first time, a series of six concerts will be broadcast from New York’s Central Park SummerStage in the New York metropolitan area. ABC-TV will air “Live from Central Park SummerStage" concerts every Saturday
beginning July 24, 11:35 pm – 12:35 am. The series will be hosted by Sam Champion of “Eyewitness News” and is executive produced by Ideal Entertainment principals Jon and Peter Shapiro. (Peter Shapiro was profiled by CelebrityAccess on April 16.)

All the talent comes from the "benefit" shows–the nine paid concerts–rather than the bevy of 30 free shows that SummerStage is internationally known for. All the paid concerts this season have been Clear Channel Entertainment promotions.

The featured lineup is:

July 24 –Rufus Wainwright

July 31—Ben Folds

August 7 – Guster

August 14 – Devo

August 21 – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

August 28 – stellastarr*

September 4 – Best of Show

— Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
