This summer is going to be jam-packed with a wide variety of entertainment hitting the ever-popular Stone Pony Summer Stage.

What makes this year so special is that in the past few years because of the pandemic there was a hesitation to book the bigger shows because of cancellations due to COVID-19 and the careful approach fans were taking in crowding together to see the shows. It was truly a hassle. That is not the case in 2023, as the schedule at the Stone Pony Summer Stage for 2023 shows ramps up to full speed.

There is only one major change that is on this schedule, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes have been playing their Fourth of July show for years at the famed Summer Stage since it was erected, barring any inclement weather. They moved the show to have Johnny on Labor Day Weekend bookmarked between Almost Queen and Yacht Rock Revue all scheduled for that weekend and in my opinion a great way to end the summer.

The Indigo Girls, B-52s and Goose are all invading Asbury Park. This is the year to go out and enjoy great music at a great venue. The summer of 2023 is set for a time to get back to Rock and Roll. There is a great place to do it The Stone Pony Summer Stage. See you this summer.
