The Minnesota Zoo will once again host a lengthy slate of shows at the Weesner Family Amphitheater this summer. Starting in June and running through late August, the Music in the Zoo series just put out a huge schedule for the year, with more concerts to be added later this month.

Among this first round of announced shows is the Hold Steady playing for the first time locally since the release of Teeth Dreams earlier this year. Update (4/14/14): More shows have been added, including Taj Mahal with Mavis Staples, and Nicholas David.

I think it's been 10 years. 8-21-04 where they dedicated every song to an animal. AMAZING show

As in the past couple of years, uninspiring for the most part and overpriced. Too bad. It was such a fun venue.

It's unfortunate that many of these are so overpriced, although a headliner or two from some of the newer bands would also be helpful...

It is a beautiful outdoor venue. There are very few outdoor venues in MN.

Love you Hold Steady but not big on supporting a zoo anymore.

There are some good shows in that lineup - Rufus W, Hold Steady would both be good.

Absolutely outrageous prices for bands hardly anyone cares about anymore. Would love to bring the kids to something like this. At these prices, I'm look at $350-400 for my wife and kids.
