The summer concert series in the Greater Kansas City Area is about to get underway with a bevy of hot shows rolling into venues across the city. It doesn’t matter if you’re a little bit country or rock ‘n’ roll, there are a great number of shows to be seen this summer, giving music fans the opportunity to plan an evening around dinner, drinks, the concert, and any post-show get-togethers at tap-rooms or cocktail lounges around the city.

If you like classic rock, you’ll be happy to know that Fleetwood Mac will be in Kansas City at the Sprint Center on Tuesday, April 30th. Fleetwood Mac has a catalog of hits dating back to 1968. And although the band has had a revolving line-up of talented musicians, the 2013 tour promises to bring some of the best talent together again for a night of  indisputable hit songs – one after another. Obviously, with the venue’s close proximity to the Kansas City Power & Light District, there will be plenty of opportunity to have a bite to eat or a few drinks before and after the show. Also on the rock ticket this summer is a mega-show out at Starlight Theatre in Kansas City featuring Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Ted Nugent. This show promises thunderous drum beats and incendiary guitar solos. Not to be missed.

For contemporary country music fans, Carrie Underwood is coming to the Sprint Center on May 1st. The former American Idol winner will be performing hits from her new album Blown Away, as well as fan favorites from her three previous studio albums. Later in the summer, Taylor Swift will be playing two soon-to-be-sold-out shows at the Sprint Center (August 2nd and 3rd). As part of her Red Tour, Ms. Swift will be playing a lengthy set list of hits to the screaming masses.

Planning to attend a big-name concert this summer? You should consider reserving a chauffeured  limousine or Town Car for the night. Given all of the entertainment and socializing that makes up a great night of live music with friends, a chauffeured car service will allow you to have the concert night of your life – without having to worry about where to park and how you’re getting back home at the end of the evening. Moreover, a chauffeured  limousine or Town Car eliminates the worry of drinking and driving. When you reserve a chauffeured car, you can be picked up at the beginning of the evening and dropped off at the front door after the night has come to an end. And if the weather is less than perfect, you won’t have to worry about making a mad dash through the rain to hunt down your car in a parking lot.

Summertime is a great time for live music in Kansas City. Being able to relax and enjoy a stress-free ride in a chauffeured car, leaving your belongings in the vehicle, and enjoying a beverage or snack along the way will make every live music event more memorable. Having a car waiting for you at every stop might even have you feeling like a rock star yourself!
