Music lovers looking for classic rock tribute music do not have to travel to LA to the House of Blues or some crowded indoor casino to revive their classic rock musical souls in search of some of the best tribute music performing on the West Coast. It’s as close as one of the most intimate, magical and outdoor concert venues located in the heart of Southern California’s favorite mountain playground, the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater in . . . featuring a backdrop of cool mountain breezes, heavenly mountain aromas and starlit nights.

Upcoming Shows:

June 30: Classic Rock Double hitter, The Long Run, Experience the Eagles.

With special guest, Fortunate Son Tribute to John Fogert, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The Long Run, has earned its place among the top-drawing tribute acts in North America and is regarded as one of the finest Eagles tributes in the world. 5:30pm gates open; 7:00pm concert starts

July 7: Sticky Fingers, the Leading International Rolling Stones Tribute Show

“The greatest rock and roll tribute band in the world” boasting a talent pool of multi-platinum musicians who have performed and recorded with the Rolling Stones themselves, the #1 band in rock history. 5:30pm gates open; 7:00pm concert starts

July 21: DSB presents, Don’t Stop Believin’ America’s Favorite Tribute to Journey.

DSB returns for a second command performance in 2012; they rocked the mountain in 2011 to new heights and their presence is still felt. Highly revered by fans as “the next best thing”, DSB has captured the lush signature sound of renowned vocalist Steve Perry, brilliantly delivered by Juan Del Castillo, and Journey in their prime. 5:30pm gates open; 7:00pm concert starts

September 1: Surreal Neil and Super Diamond

After assembling a band of truly kindred spirits, Surreal Neil and Super Diamond began to perform regularly in San Francisco and then all over the U.S, and something quite wonderful happened: people turned out in large numbers to see them, and returned again and again and again. 5:30pm gates open; 7:00pm concert starts
General Admission Adults: $25
