CONCERT TICKETS NOW ON SALE

 
Tickets are now on sale for Kool & The Gang and Michael McDonald.
 
As we celebrate 27 years of family entertainment this summer, it’s only fitting that Kool & the Gang will be the Festival’s headliner on Saturday, July 25, 2009 in conjunction with our spectacular nighttime hot air balloon glow at 8:00 p.m. “Celebration” was the group’s smash No. 1 hit that is on every play list at weddings and festive occasions all over the world.
 
Kool & The Gang, led by Jersey City’s own Robert “Kool” Bell and his brother Ronald Khalis Bell, have sold more than 70 million albums with chart-toppers including “Celebration”, “Ladies Night”, “Joanna” and “Cherish.”
 
5-time Grammy award winner Michael McDonald will perform live in concert as PNC Bank presents one of the music industry’s most talented singer-songwriters on the Festival’s Main Stage on Sunday, July 26 at 3 p.m. The gold and platinum selling R&B/soul singer and songwriter is known for his award-winning work as a member of The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan and as a solo artist.
 
Possessing a distinctive, husky soulful baritone, McDonald’s hits include “What A Fool Believes,” which won four Grammy awards including Song of The Year and Record of The Year; “Minute By Minute”, “Takin’ It To The Streets”, and “It Keeps You Runnin’.” He also received two Grammy nominations for his platinum-selling Motown tribute album which featured the classics “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”, and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”
 
Keeping things in the Festival family, Michael McDonald’s son Dylan McDonald and his acoustic duo will open for his father, taking the stage at 2:15 p.m. If you buy tickets now we’ll refrain from any Old McDonald-Young McDonald bad puns.
 
General admission tickets include admission into the Festival and lawn seating for the concerts. General admission tickets are $17 in advance for adults and $7 in advance for children ages 4-12 (GA tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children ages 4-12). Children age 3 and under are free. Advance tickets will be available through midnight, Thursday, July 23.
 
Blue Sky Club VIP tickets, which include reserved concert seats, VIP parking, Festival admission with priority viewing of the scheduled hot air balloon mass ascensions, and access to private food and beverage service and executive restrooms, are $65. Three-day Blue Sky Club VIP tickets are $149, a savings of more than $30.
