Country music artist Wynonna Judd and blues rock band Grand Funk Railroad are on the lineup for Rock Hill’s upcoming summer concert series, according to the city’s Only in Old Town website. Tickets are expected to go on sale Wednesday.

Grand Funk Railroad will play on June 20 at Rock Hill’s Old Town Amphitheater, located at City Hall on Black Street. Wynonna is scheduled for Aug. 8 at the amphitheater.

Gates open at 6 p.m. for both concerts. The headliners will take the stage at 8:15 p.m., following opening acts.

Advance-sale tickets for Grand Funk Railroad start at $35. Wynonna tickets start at $45.

A limited number of special “upper tier” concert tickets will be available for both events. The upper tier area includes catered food, a cash bar and private indoor restrooms. Those tickets are $65 for Grand Funk Railroad and $75 for Wynonna.

The amphitheater holds 1,000 people and includes floor and terrace seating.

City officials planned to announce this year’s summer concert series lineup Wednesday, the first day of ticket sales, but information was posted in advance on the amphitheater’s website.

In a news release posted online, city officials pointed out that last year’s concerts featuring 1980s rocker Rick Springfield and country star Clint Black brought the largest crowds for the series so far.

“We are excited about the level of talent coming to the Old Town Amphitheater this concert season. It will not disappoint,” Downtown Development Manager Cathy Murphy said in the news release.
