Friday freebies: The annual Good Morning America (GMA) FREE Friday morning free summer concerts in Central Park begins this week with Green Day. On future Fridays, the GMA Summer Concert Series features Imagine Dragons, Paramore, Jason Derulo and country stars Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town.
GMA Summer Concert Series performances are in Rumsey Field in Central Park.
All performances are open to first-come first-serve this year except for The Chainsmokers on June 9th, which requires a FREE ticket for admission.
You should arrive via the 72nd street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6:00am when Central Park opens to the public. The show is broadcast live, including the concert, 7am to 9am, and there’s usually additional music for park attendees after the broadcast.
