Queen City Cadence: Kiss the Summer Hello
blog by Kathryn Przybyla • May 31, 2012 @ 3:14pm
I’m not sure how they’re going to pull it off, but the staff over at Coca-Cola field deserve an award after the upcoming weekend of packed shows. With the already sold-out Taste of County taking place on Friday, thousands of people will be flooding downtown the very next night for Kiss 98.5’s Kiss the Summer Hello.
Headlining the show this year is the Carly Rae Jepsen—Justin Bieber’s latest project and “Call Me Maybe” viral video extraordinaire. The Canadian singer kicked off her career by placing third in Canadian Idol’s fifth season. Joining her on stage will be Dev, most known for her first single “Bass Down Low” and Chiddy Bang, a hip-hop duo from Philly who are no stranger to Buffalo.
Kiss the Summer Hello will kick off at 5 p.m. this Saturday at Coca-Cola field. Tickets are still available for $20 in the seats and $35 on the field. You can still purchase them online though Tickets.com.
