BECU ZooTunes Announces Three Shows For Summer ’16 Including Weird Al and B-52s


The first wave of  BECU ZooTunes announcements was just released. The insanely popular summer concert series kicks off the 2016 season of popular music shows held at Woodland Park Zoo with three blasts from the past… UB40 is first out of the gate on July 21st, followed by the pretty much annual visit by The B-52s (with English Beat!!) on July 24th, and the return of funny parody artist “Weird Al” Yankovic on July 26 & 27.

What you need to know on how to snag those tickets!

BECU ZooTunes presented by Carter Subaru returns with another exciting summer of concerts. This year, the zoo is sharing the lineup with a series of announcements. To kick-off the season, the 2016 lineup will include:

July 21 UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey
with The Wailers
July 24 The B-52s with special guest The English Beat
July 26 & 27 “Weird Al” Yankovic – The Mandatory World Tour

Additional ZooTunes concerts will be announced soon. The popular concerts are held outdoors on the vast, picturesque North Meadow of Woodland Park Zoo.

BECU ZooTunes presented by Carter Subaru is a major source of revenue for the zoo’s mission. Proceeds from ZooTunes support the zoo’s exemplary animal care, engaging education programs and wildlife conservation projects in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.
