Berlin Kicks off Free Spring Concerts
First Weekend Palm Desert celebrates the finale of another successful season with a live performance by Berlin that offers a high energy kick-off to the City’s free Spring Concerts in the Park.
Berlin will take the Civic Center Park Amphitheater stage at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, playing their biggest hits including “No More Words,” “The Metro,” and “Take My Breath Away.” The band, featuring lead singer Terri Nunn, is recording a brand new studio album with original Berlin members and co-writers, John Crawford (bass) and David Diamond (keyboards) that is scheduled for release later this year. The album marks the first collaboration by Nunn, Crawford and Diamond since 1984. In addition to fantastic music from one of the 1980s most iconic bands, concertgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy delectable fare from four food trucks.
The first concert is just one of five exciting musical acts that spring concertgoers will discover from 7:30 to 9 p.m. every Thursday in May. Hosted by the City with additional sponsorship from the Desert Recreation District, the Spring Concerts in the Park lineup is designed to please music lovers of all ages and tastes including: the Mighty Untouchables (May 9); Yachty By Nature (May 16); The Fancies (May 23); and the Beatles Tribute band Britain’s Finest (May 30).
Family YMCA of the Desert will once again be leading children’s games and activities before each of the five shows. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the evening. Alcoholic beverages and smoking are prohibited. Civic Center Park is located on the northeast corner of San Pablo Avenue and Fred Waring Drive.
The kickoff Spring concert is just one of the many fun events featured as part of First Weekend Palm Desert, held every first weekend of the month, November through May.
