Live concerts returning to San Luis Obispo County

After a year of lockdowns and restrictions, live entertainment in San Luis Obispo County gets its mojo back with a fresh slate of summer concerts to keep local music lovers happy.

The Vina Robles Amphitheatre season kicks off on July 31 with guitar virtuoso singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa. Nothing like sipping a pinot noir while listening to one of the greatest guitarists in the world.

Grammy Award winners The Mavericks and Los Lobos will co-headline on Aug. 14, and the “Funniest Show in Town at the Moment,” with Steve Martin and Martin Short, will play on Aug. 22.

Tickets go on sale May 14 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the rescheduled dates.

To ensure the health and well-being of patrons, artists, and staff, enhanced health and safety measures will be implemented at the venue.
