Big Stars align for Deer Valley Bright Nights

Submitted by Park City Performing Arts Foundation

Park City Performing Arts Foundation (PCPAF) is proud to announce the full lineup for its seventh season of outdoor concerts at Deer Valley Resort. The 2010 St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Summer Concert series will include five nights of sizzling music including OneRepublic (July 4), Wynonna (July 20), Michael McDonald (Aug. 8), Earth, Wind & Fire (Aug. 20) and Ryan Bingham (with special guests TBA Sept. 6).

Held at Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater, the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, May 3 (presale for PCPAF sponsors and members began April 19). Tickets are available through PCPAF and Deer Valley Signatures or Etc. stores and will be available online at ParkCityTickets.com beginning Tuesday, May 4.

Independence Day weekend, OneRepublic brings its R&B-tinged pop-rock on Sunday, July 4. "All the Right Moves" (in all the wrong places) is both the mantra and the Top 40 song for this Colorado-based band, one of Rolling Stone’s "Artists to Watch." OneRepublic frontman, Ryan Tedder, has written chart-topping songs for Beyoncé ("Halo"), Kelly Clarkson ("Already Gone"), and Leona Lewis ("Bleeding Love"), but it’s his group’s multi-platinum single "Apologize" that garnered the "most popular download in American history" distinction.

On Tuesday, July 20, Wynonna brings a voice as big as her long-running career for a night filled with more than just her tried-and-true country singles. Dabbling in everything from roots rock, gospel and adult contemporary pop to folk and Southern R&B, this celebrated songstress counts more than 10 million albums sold, 6 platinum-plus/gold-plus albums, 16 Top Ten hits, a Top Female Vocalist Of The Year Award from the Academy of Country Music among her many accolades. "No One Else on Earth" can rock the Deer Valley Resort hillside quite like "Wy."

Mr. Blue-Eyed Soul himself, Michael McDonald, will unleash his husky, soulful baritone for an unforgettable evening on Sunday, August 8. This Grammy Award-winning, gold and platinum-selling R&B/soul singer and songwriter whose roots with the Doobie Brothers cemented his place in the annals of rock ‘n’ roll history is a soulful, stylish and graceful veteran musician, famous for standards like "What a Fool Believes" and "Sweet Freedom."

On Friday, August 20, get ready for a "Mighty, Mighty" good time as Earth Wind & Fire bring their notoriously elaborate and dynamic stage show to Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. "One of the tightest bands in funk" (All Music Guide), this Grammy Award-winning ’70s super band incorporates jazz, smooth soul, gospel, pop, rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelia, blues, folk, African music and disco into an evening destined to be a "Shining Star."
