Dancing in the Street: May’s Best Global Concerts




Comments  (0)

May 15, 2013 —  Back in 1964, Martha and the Vandellas were on to something when they sang “summer’s here and the time is right for dancin’ in the street.” The Marvin Gaye-written lyrics urged a generation to get off the couch and out to their nearest live music performance.

“Dancing in the Street” remains the perfect rally cry for all generations come summertime. Whether groovy guys and gals grew up listening to music in the ‘60s and ‘70s, or fell crazy in love with the electro-infused sounds of the new millennium, May has the perfect global concert for them.

Baby boomers will feel like they traveled back in time as they file into the United Center in Chicago and belt out “Satisfaction” with the ageless Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones. Mick might be 70 years old, but he still jumps around concert halls like it’s May of 1975.

Beyoncé has some moves like Jagger – and then some – and will strut her bootylicious bod all over the Olympiahalle stage in Munich come May 22, much to the delight of millennials and anyone with a working pair of eyes.

It’s been nearly 50 years since audiences first heard the most famous Martha and the Vandellas tune, but the message remains the same. It’s summer. Get outside and boogie!
