Find out how to attend GMA’s Summer Concert Series in NYC


This week a few people have asked exactly what to do and where to go to catch Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series, which takes place in Central Park each Friday. So, here are some detail about 2014’s lineup and how to get into these shows.

The series begins Friday, May 23, 2014:

May 23: Lady Antebellum (#LadyAOnGMA)
May 30: Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson* (#50CentOnGMA)
June 6: Demi Lovato (#DemiOnGMA)
June 13 Paramore (#ParamoreOnGMA)
June 20: Jennifer Lopez (#JLOonGMA)*
June 27: Afrojack (#AfrojackOnGMA)
July 4: Jason Derulo (#JasonDeruloOnGMA)
July 11: Keith Urban (#KeithUrbanOnGMA)
July 18: Zedd (#ZeddOnGMA)
July 25: Kings of Leon (#KOLonGMA)
August 1: Enrique Iglesias (#EnriqueOnGMA)
August 8: Luke Bryan (#LukeBryanOnGMA)
August 15: Florida Georgia Line (#FGLonGMA)
August 22: Robin Thicke (#ThickeOnGMA)
August 29: Brad Paisley (#BradPaisleyOnGMA)

The Jennifer Lopez and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson concerts require advance tickets. Tickets will be available closer to the performance date (more info can be found here).

All other concerts are free and open to the public and will take place live during GMA between 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

To be a part of the audience, arrive at Rumsey Playfield via the 72nd Street entrance on Fifth Avenue by 6:00 a.m., when the park opens to the public (it’s probably not a bad idea to start plan on lining up before then).


  1. Not sure if there are VIP tickets, but fans have been known to line up since midnight or 4 am to get a great spot. I’ve only attended the Lady Gaga concert which was a ticketed event and got there at 6 am. I had a nice spot.

    • most of the events you dont need a ticket for. all of them are a first come first serve basis. i went last year to one and got there at 6am and it was already packed so your best bet is to get there before 6am when the park opens.
