Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park gave another sneak peek at its Summer Concert Series lineup.

Meijer Gardens has announced that Harry Connick, Jr. and Garrison Keillor, host of American Public Media's "A Prarie Home Companion," will make stops in Grand Rapids this summer.

Connick will play at Meijer Gardens' outdoor amphitheater on July 17, and Keillor will take the stage on Aug. 5 as part of his Radio Romance Tour.

They join already announced acts Montgomery Gentry, David Byrne and St. Vincent, Steve Miller Band and Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell.

So far, the sneak-peek announcements indicate that this summer's lineup will be as diverse as in previous years, with something for every musical taste to enjoy.

The full lineup will be announced on April 11.

Last year included the largest concert lineup thus far for Meijer Gardens’ annual summer series with 25 concerts — 13 of which sold out.

Tickets go on sale to members on Saturday, April 27 and will be available to the general public starting on Saturday, May 11.

More information on prices and purchasing locations will be available following the release of the full lineup.
