Get ready to rock into summer at Newtown Park

May 01, 2017

Summer ConcertJohns Creek is ready to rock this summer! Help us kick-off the Johns Creek Summer Concert Series with Gump Fiction on Friday, May 12 at the Burkhalter Amphitheater inside Newtown Park!
The first group to grace the stage is none other than Gump Fiction. This group knows how to bring the fun! Gump Fiction is a high-octane, nostalgia-fueled time machine with one totally radical destination: the 1990s. Known as the Ultimate 90s Experience, they will take you back to the days of dial-up Internet, slap bracelets, Tamagotchi pets, and the music you forgot you loved. Gump Fiction is your chance to go back in time and rock out to your favorite A-side tracks, from Nirvana to Britney Spears, and everywhere in between.

Jessie Albright and Foster Blues is the opening band and will take the stage at 7 p.m. Gump Fiction follows around 8:15 p.m.
Concerts are free, gates open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
For the May concert, Angel Fire BBQ food truck and King of Pops with their sweet frozen treats will be on site. For those looking for a little more room, you can purchase round tables, for up to ten people, can be reserved under the amphitheater by calling 678-512-3200.
