Willie Nelson, The Beach Boys highlight Hoosier Park summer concerts

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson recently announced its official Summer's Greatest Hits lineup, presented by Coors Light.

In its third year, Hoosier Park's summer stage will welcome a series of four national headlining acts to the Hoosier Park outdoor music center. The three-month long summer series will run from June 8 through Aug. 31.

Known for such hits as "The Heart of Rock and Roll" and "I Want a New Drug," Huey Lewis & the News will kick off the summer concert series on June 8 with their "Sports" Anniversary Tour, named after their seven-time platinum 1983 album. Fellow 1980s rockers The B-52s and The Go-Go's will bring their new-wave brand of rock to the stage on June 29, playing their respective hits that include "Love Shack" and "We Got the Beat."

On July 12 country music legend Willie Nelson will treat fans to the classics that built his storied career such as "On the Road Again" and "Always on My Mind." Alongside his series of fan favorites, Willie Nelson and Family will play songs from their new album, "Let's Face the Music and Dance," a collection of American standards and country classics.

The smooth, surfer-inspired harmonies of The Beach Boys will once again grace the Hoosier Park summer stage on Aug. 31, since last performing at the Anderson racetrack and casino in July 2009. The Beach Boys, recently coming off their 50th anniversary international tour, released a new studio album that represents a new harmonic blending from a super group with such hits as "Good Vibrations," "Surfin' U.S.A," and "Kokomo."

The Summer's Greatest Hits concerts are scheduled to begin at approximately 8 p.m. The Hoosier Park outdoor music center accommodates up to 4,500 reserved ticket seats. The music center features a variety of ticket options, including premium VIP seating and private party decks complete with personal beverage service.
