Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater just announced two concerts for Memorial Day weekend:
– ’90s alt-rock survivors Cake will perform on Saturday, May 25. Tickets cost $37 plus fees in advance.
– Icelandic experimental post-rock group Sigur Ros will play on Sunday, May 26. Tickets cost $44 plus fees in advance.
Tickets to both shows will be available starting at 10 a.m. Friday morning at The Ticket Mill (541-318-5457) or at the amphitheater’s website.
And to answer the obvious question: The Schwab’s Memorial Day weekend schedule typically — or, at least, ideally — includes a Friday-night show, but none was announced along with Cake and Sigur Ros. That doesn’t mean a Friday show isn’t happening; one can be added later. The venue and the company that books the concerts are trying to fill that night as we speak.
