The Washington Nationals announced today that Dierks Bentley (June 2), The Wallflowers (July 21) and Third Eye Blind (August 18) will comprise the lineup for the NatsLive Post-Game Concert Series, three FREE concerts following select Nationals home games throughout the summer.
"I can't imagine anything that epitomizes summer better than baseball and outdoor concerts," Nationals Chief Operating Officer Andrew Feffer said. "Not only will Nationals fans get to watch great baseball, but now they can enjoy performances from multi-platinum selling artists for free, right here at Nationals Park."
Fans who wish to attend the free concerts must have a valid ticket for that day's Nationals game. The performances will begin approximately 15 minutes after the final out of each Nationals game.
"Our entire band is really excited to go out and play at Nationals Park," said Dierks Bentley, who was previously announced as the artist to open the series. "This concert will be a real American gig, a night at the ballpark in the Nation's Capital playing music. It's fun for all of us and we are fired up."
DIERKS BENTLEY: Saturday, June 2
Multi-platinum selling country artist Dierks Bentley will be the first act to hit the NatsLive stage after the Nationals take on their NL East rival, the Atlanta Braves, the first weekend in June. The CMA Award winner and 10-time Grammy Award nominee is known for his hits including "What Was I Thinkin," "Come a Little Closer" and "Sideways." His sixth studio album Home was released earlier this year.
THE WALLFLOWERS: Saturday, July 21
Los Angeles-based rock band The Wallflowers will make their NatsLive debut after the Nationals-Braves game in mid-July. With hits including "One Headlight," "6th Avenue Heartache" and "Heroes," the two-time Grammy Award winning band's album Bringing Down the Horse has been certified platinum four times since its release. The Wallflowers will release their sixth studio album this fall on Columbia Records.
THIRD EYE BLIND: Saturday, August 18
Third Eye Blind will wrap up the NatsLive Post-Game Concert Series after the Nationals face the New York Mets in August. "Semi-Charmed Life," "Jumper" and "Graduate" are among the San Francisco-based rock band's biggest hits following the release of their self-titled debut album in 1997, which went on to sell more than seven million copies in the U.S. alone. The band's fourth studio album, Ursa Major, was released in late 2009.
