Once again this spring and summer, the NBC Today Show is featuring FREE concerts in Rockefeller Plaza. This year’s list of stars and superstars includes Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus.
The concerts are broadcast live during the Today Show, between 7AM and 9AM, and there’s usually an additional concert for the crowd after the show goes off the air.
There are no tickets. It’s first come, first served for the available space outside Today’s window-on-the-world studi., so be there by 6:30AM if you want to be close enough to see anything.
Unlike past years, when Today Show concerts were on Friday mornings, this year the day of the week varies. Some concerts are Friday freebies, others are Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, so check the calendar carefully to see and hear your favorite performer.
Today Show competitor Good Morning America (GMA) also has a FREE Friday summer concert series, in Central Park. Well be publishing that schedule tomorrow.
