Catalina Island to kick off virtual ‘Summer of Love’ concert series
AVALON—The first concert in the annual Catalina Island Concert Series will take place as a virtual event.
Love Catalina Island, the official Tourism Authority for Catalina Island, announced the first concert of the “Summer of Love” series will kick off on Friday, Aug. 7 at 8:15 p.m. with a virtual concert from award-winning Rolling Stones tribute band, Mick Adams & The Stones. Mick Adams & The Stones were originally set to play on the island earlier this summer but the in-person event was canceled due to COVID-19.
Co-sponsored by the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, the virtual event will be live-streamed from the legendary Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach.
The virtual event is completely free to attend. It will be preceded by a special program starting at 7 p.m. to help benefit the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and first responders, including firefighters, lifeguards, and paramedics impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees can choose to take part in live and silent auctions, and hear directly from first responders affected.
