Popular Artists at Tanglewood

From Ringo to Arlo and Judy Collins

By: - Nov 21, 2019

Tanglewood’s Popular Artist series kicks off June 19, 2020, in the Shed with Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band opening the 2020 Tanglewood season. The Tanglewood concert is part of Starr’s 2020 North American tour following the recent release of his new album, What’s My Name. The following night, June 20 at 7:30 p.m., composer/guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio, a founding member of the rock band Phish, joins Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops in concert in the Shed. American music icons Judy Collins and Arlo Guthrie finish out the opening weekend with an afternoon performance in the Shed (6/21). Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me!, NPR’s oddly informative news quiz show, returns to Tanglewood on Thursday, August 27, at 8 p.m. The Peabody Award-winning show offers a fast-paced, irreverent look at the week’s news, hosted by Peter Sagal with judge and scorekeeper Bill Kurtis. Additional popular artists will be announced in early 2020.
