Get ready for an unforgettable night of music and al fresco dining under the stars at the lush Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. On June 17, 2023, join Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger for the fifth annual “Live at the Arboretum” summer concert festival featuring Grammy-nominated, double-platinum artists The Fray.
Denver-based foursome, The Fray, formed in 2002 after high school friends, Slade and King, bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. In 2005, the group achieved national success with their debut self-titled release, featuring the hit singles “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life,” which went double-platinum. The release also earned the band a 2010 Grammy nomination. The Fray is Joe King (guitar, vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar), and Ben Wysocki (drums).
Previous festivals have featured successful acts such as Sara Evans, Dwight Yoakam, Trace Adkins, and LeAnn Rimes. This year’s festival promises to be just as entertaining, with The Fray performing hits like “How to Save a Life,” “Over My Head (Cable Car),” and “You Found Me” live for one night only.
Doors open at 5:30pm, so grab a spot on the spacious circular table seating with linens or bring your own blanket for general admission lawn seating. You’re also welcome to bring your own food and drinks or choose from the many food trucks and two beverage centers serving fine wines, beer, coffee, and soft drinks.
Tickets start at only $20 for lawn seats, while table seats range from $30 to $60. To purchase tickets, call the box office at (626) 793-7172, visit https://pasadenasymphony-pops.org/concert/the-fray/, or buy them on the day of the concert at the Arboretum.
Parking is available on-site at the Arboretum lot for $20 or at the Santa Anita Race Track for $10, first-come, first-served. Free shuttles will operate to and from the Arboretum, but arrive early to secure one of the limited number of accessible parking spaces.
Don’t miss this incredible event and the chance to see The Fray perform live under the stars. Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger has worked hard to provide effective and responsive representation to the residents of the county, and this event is just one of the ways she is making the visual arts, music, and performing arts more accessible.
