Earth, Wind & Fire added to Big Stars, Bright Nights

Submitted by Park City Performing Arts Foundation

Park City Performing Arts Foundation (PCPAF) is proud to announce the third of five shows for its seventh season of outdoor concerts at Deer Valley Resort. Critically-acclaimed funk band Earth, Wind & Fire (Aug. 20) joins the 2010 St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights, Summer Concert series, also featuring OneRepublic (July 4) and Michael McDonald (Aug. 8).

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. Starting May 4, they can be purchased online at http://www.ParkCityTickets.com.

On Friday, Aug. 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 Amphitheatre. "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."

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 BeyoncĂ© ("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.

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."

Additional performances will be announced as they are confirmed.
