Dark Star Orchestra To Play New Coney Island Amphitheater This Sunday

first_imgWith almost 20 years and over 2,500 shows under their belt, Dark Star Orchestra continues to keep the Grateful Dead experience alive and well. The group will be performing at the newly opened state-of-the-art Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk, which opened earlier this month, this coming Sunday, July 31st (purchase tickets here).The 5,000-capacity covered open-air venue marks the beginning of a major revival to an area that has been called “America’s Playground” since pre-WWII. Before attending the show, you can make it a full day by checking out the famous Coney Island amusement parks, take a stroll along the boardwalk,  hang out on the beach, and snag a Nathan’s Famous hot dog before making your way to the venue.It will take a good guess as to which show, and from which era, DSO will perform on this special evening, but you can bet that Jeff Mattson, Rob Barraco, Dino English and company will deliver the magic of the Grateful Dead’s catalog to the Coney Island crowd at what is being hailed as one of the best new venues across the country.Coney Island is easily accessible by the D, F, N & Q trains to Stillwell Ave/Coney Island, if you decide to take mass transportation. If you are driving, there are metered spots, as well as paid parking lots between W 12th and W 17th Streets.
