#3) Wilmington Residents Invited To Free Outdoor Concert Featuring Billy Joel Cover Band — “Heart Attack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack” At Tewksbury Library
Enjoy a free concert from the popular Bill Joel cover band, Heart Attack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack, this Monday, August 2, 2021, from 6:30pm to 8pm, on the back lawn of the Tewksbury Public Library (300 Chandler Street).
Anchored by a professional dueling pianist and lifelong Billy Joel fan, the band’s dynamic live shows focus largely on Billy’s more rocking mid-70s to early-80s output and have been converting ‘too cool for school’ Billy Joel doubters one by one, while giving lifelong fans a chance to sing along with their favorites at the top of their lungs.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs. Overflow parking is available in the field across from the library’s parking lot.
Uncomfortable in large crowds? Out of town? Tewksbury Telemedia will live-stream each concert on the Town’s YouTube page and its local access television stations.
The concert is free of charge. No registration is required. Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Tewksbury Cultural Council. Have a question? Contact librarian Robert Hayes at email@example.com or 978-640-4490 x 205.
The Tewksbury Public Library is located at 300 Chandler Street, at the corner of Chandler and Main Street (Route 38).
