ERIEBANK 8 Great Tuesdays Lineup Announced
One of Erie's best-loved event series is officially back
The Erie-Western PA Port Authority's iconic event series is back. The ERIEBANK 8 Great Tuesdays concert lineup has been officially announced, having being previously canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. David Zimmer, President of ERIEBANK, noted that "we are pleased that the Covid-19 restrictions have eased, and we can once again sponsor ERIEBANK 8 Great Tuesdays." He continued that "bringing the community together for music at Highmark Amphitheater and sunsets over the bay will give us the feeling of normal we have all been craving."
The concerts run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. A free shuttle service, provided by the "e" (Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority), begins at 5:30 p.m. from the Erie Intermodal Complex, and from the Hoffman Transportation Hub (near 12th Street and Lincoln Avenue).
Brenda Sandberg, Executive Director of the Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority said in a press release that "the Port Authority made a conscious decision to change the normal line-up to feature four local bands as headliners and book all local opening acts to assist western Pennsylvania artists who have been unable to perform this past year.".
