Alive at Five

June 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The third concert in this series is Classic Rock Night featuring Lita Ford with Candy Ambulance on June 23. Lita Ford is originally from London but has been in the U.S. since second grade. The 1989 single “Close My Eyes Forever”, a duet with Ozzy Osbourne, remains Ford’s most successful song, reaching No. 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100. She was also the lead guitarist for the all-female rock band the Runaways in the late 1970s, before embarking on a successful glam metal solo career. Joining her is Candy Ambulance from Troy, NY who describes themselves as grungy-rock.

Albany’s signature free concert series premiered in the summer of 1990 with a performance by legendary folk artist Richie Havens, and has since grown into a staple of summer in the Capital Region. Showcasing a diverse lineup of big names, up-and-coming acts and the region’s most talented original artists, Alive at Five offers eight weeks of free, critically-acclaimed performances catering to nearly every taste.

Parking: $5 flat fee and handicap parking is available at the Riverfront Garage at Broadway and Columbia Street. For more information on parking options, visit www.parkalbany.com.
