Magic Springs presents Neon Trees

Magic Springs presents Neon Trees

Neon Trees’ first single “Animal” has climbed to No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Alternative Rock Chart.  Like their name, Neon Trees offer a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard hitting; their anthems of adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment.  Neon Trees is the fourth of 12 concerts scheduled every Saturday night through August 13, at Magic Springs Water and Theme Park.
 
The concert is Saturday, June 18, at the Magic Springs Timberwood Amphitheater.  Concert gates open at 6 p.m.; show starts at 8 p.m.
