Stone Pony 2021 Summer Stage concert schedule is out
As we celebrate the anniversary of the Stone Pony opening its doors on Feb. 8, 1974, from the man who brought you the 2021 PNC Bank Arts Center concert schedule, let's also celebrate the shows that will appear on Asbury Park's legendary Stone Pony Summer Stage in 2021.
Many of the shows are rescheduled and I'm not seeing any backup plans should New Jersey be further restricted due to the pandemic. Hopefully, by the time summer hits and more of us have been hit with the vaccine, this won't be a problem. If you purchased tickets to one of these shows last year before they were postponed, make sure you check the Stone Pony website since those tickets may be honored for this years show. If you have any questions you can call them at 732-502-0600.
Here's the lineup:
Saturday, May 29 at 12 P.M. Shadow of the City.

Heads up, their box office is currently closed. If you have any questions or concerns about tickets, you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can buy tickets for any of these shows online right here. There's handicapped-accessible seating available and street and lot parking available, but it's limited due to potentially busy days during the summer.
