Hooters, Temptations and Beach Boys to Play in Ocean City This Summer

Tickets are now on sale for the first wave of shows in the 2017 Summer Concert Series on the Ocean City Music Pier. The series will include the Temptations on June 26, the Hooters on July 17 and 18, and the return of the Beach Boys on August 21 and 22.

The Hooters will bring back a lot of memories for the folks who caught the Philadelphia-based band’s live shows on the Jersey Shore or listened to WMMR-FM in the 1980s. The band will reprise big hits like “All You Zombies,” “And We Danced” and “Day by Day,” and will introduce newer material as well. The shows will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 17 and Tuesday, July 18.

The Temptations show will include founder and surviving original member Otis Williams. The legendary Motown band has a catalog of more than 25 Top 20 hits and has been performing live for more than 50 years.

The Beach Boys have played to sold-out crowds on the Ocean City Music Pier for the past two summers, and they’re making good on a promise to keep returning. They’ll perform four shows: 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 21, and 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 22.

Concert promoter Bob Rose and BRE Entertainment recently announced these shows, and they are working to fill out the rest of the series with more great shows. Look for additional announcements in the coming weeks.
