PHOENIX — The city of Glendale on Thursday will kick off a monthlong weekend concert series at Murphy Park.

The free concerts will take place at the outdoor amphitheater in the park on 58th and Glendale avenues every Thursday through Sunday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

There is plenty of room to socially distance and people are free to wear a mask if they wish, but concertgoers are asked to stick with their group, according to a press release.

Mariachi Pasion starts the music series on Thursday, followed by Barrio Latino on Friday, The Sugar Thieves on Saturday and Supernatural on Sunday.

The full list of acts can be found on the official website.

The concert series features a variety of genres including mariachi, blues, pop/country and 80’s rock, as well as tribute bands to Garth Brooks and the Beatles, just to name a few.

People can also see more than 40 hand-painted guitars, each created by a different downtown merchant, that will be on display at the park.

Food and beverages will not be sold in the park, according to the release.

We want to hear from you.
