Get ready, Toledo, you’ve just hit the big time. Multi-platinum-selling super-group Big Time Rush has kicked off a summer tour that starts in Los Angeles, crosses the country, and on July 30 will make a stop at the Toledo Zoo Amphitheater. Give your kids a concert they’ll never stop talking about at one of the coolest venues in the state.
Backed by Nickelodeon and Columbia Records, Big Time Rush just released their third album. Their all-new music will be featured on their Nickelodeon show, which is watched by 3.6 million daily viewers. Big Time Rush was the most watched live-action series premiere in Nickelodeon’s history, with 6.8 million viewers. Their albums continue to be among the most popular and frequently downloaded. They have sold nearly 4 million singles.
The zoo is located at 2 Hippo Way in Toledo. Once inside, you’ll drive toward the amphitheater. To avoid aquarium construction, use the main parking lot off Anthony Wayne Trail for easier access to concerts. Arrive early for parking and to have time to walk to the amphitheater from the Anthony Wayne Trail entrance.
Check here for additional concert information, or call the zoo at 419-385-5721 or 419-385-4040. Concerts are rain or shine, and the staff does not allow umbrellas into the amphitheater. Also, no recording devices are allowed, and you may not film with a camera phone.
The show is July 30, and tickets cost either $39.50, $59.50, or $75.00, depending on seating, and are available through Ticketmaster, but here’s a tip: Save big time on processing fees by purchasing your tickets in person at the zoo’s box office — they only charge s $5 surcharge per ticket.
For Big Time Fans
If you’re in the market for a big time experience, a VIP pass costs either $250 or $350 and lands you a ticket in the first 20 rows, a meet and greet, and picture with Big Time Rush. You’ll also get to see their sound check and score a VIP commemorative laminate.
You’ll get into the venue early and get plenty of pre-show refreshments. An on-site VIP host will be with you for crowd-free shopping, and you’ll walk away with a specially designed Big Time Rush tour shirt and exclusive gift bag.
Zoo members get advanced notice of upcoming shows and access to early purchase of tickets before the general public. Memberships are tax deductible and give you free zoo admission all year round. Interested? Visit the membership area for more details.
