The good news is that not only is summer nearer, but Zoo Tunes at the Woodland Park Zoo is almost here as well. And I hate to break the bad news, but the B-52’s and the Indigo Girls shows are both sold out. Yes, I’m disappointed too. And while I’m spreading bad news around you should know that you can no longer get tickets for the rest of the Zoo Tunes shows on Brown Paper Tickets. Luckily, tickets are still available at all Metropolitan Markets and at the zoo. Hey, the weather’s gorgeous, going out to get tickets is a good excuse to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

The Woodland Park Zoo has to be one of the most unique concert venues in the city and it attracts some big talent and amazing performers. So even though the B-52’s and the Indigo Girls sold out early, Zoo Tunes still has some great shows coming up that have very reasonably priced tickets available.
