The new Yuengling Summer Concert Series at SteelStacks will take place at SteelStacks’ Levitt Pavilion, the award-winning outdoor music venue located at the base of the 250-foot-tall former Bethlehem Steel blast furnaces. The shows are not part of SteelStacks’ free Levitt Pavilion Summer Concert Series presented by Highmark Blue Shield, which presents 50 free concerts for the community from Memorial Day Weekend through mid-September. For the Yuengling Summer Concert Series performances, the Levitt Pavilion will be gated with a standing-room-only capacity of 3,000.
“In addition to this performance, Steel Stacks hopes to bring more Yuengling Summer Concert Series performances to the venue in the future, with all proceeds from the shows going to support the 700-plus free performances they present at Musikfest in August, as well as at SteelStacks year-round.”
