NBC’s Today Reveals 2017 Summer Concert Series Lineup

By A.J. Katz 

In addition to their highly-publicized battle for ratings supremacy, Today and Good Morning America have also become known for their summer concert wars.

Today released its summer series lineup this morning. GMA should be releasing their own in the not-too-distant future.

Here’s a look at Today’s 2017 Citi Concert Series lineup:

Musical acts are almost always exclusive to one morning show’s summer series. If an act performs on Today, it likely won’t perform on GMA; and vice-versa. Today uses Rockefeller Plaza as the stage for its summer series, while GMA uses a stage in Central Park for its summer series.

How does this list look to you? With stars including Harry Styles, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, and the duo of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Today appears to be sporting a formidable lineup. Can GMA do better? ABC’s morning show should be releasing its list in the coming days…
