Mike and Joe and U2 Zoo will perform at the Village of Orland Park’s final Centennial Park West Concert of the summer season on Sunday, September 6.

Mike and Joe, a Chicago based modern and 90s favorites cover band will perform at Centennial Park West, located in the Colette Highlands Subdivision at Park Station Boulevard and Somerglen Lane from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Summer 2015 has been another great one for Orland Park,” said Mayor Dan McLaughlin, one of the sponsors of the village's Centennial Park West Concert Series. “To wrap up the summer, Mike and Joe will headline the last Centennial Park West Concert of the season and will give people an opportunity to spend time with family and friends while celebrating the holiday weekend.”

U2 Zoo will perform first from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. U2 Zoo is a U2 tribute band with high energy and performs U2 favorites and legendary classics.

“The Centennial Park West Labor Day Concert is a great way for the whole family to come together at the end of the summer,” said Trustee Pat Gira, chair of the village’s Recreation and Parks Committee. “It’s always a great way for residents to end the summer by having fun while listening to live music.”

The park has several rolling hills where attendees can sit to enjoy the performance. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, umbrellas, picnics, blankets and refreshments to enjoy the village’s newest outdoor entertainment venue.

“The village’s concert series at Centennial Park West have become very popular with people wanting to enjoy a fun evening with live music,” said the mayor. “We want everyone to enjoy a great night as another great summer winds down.”

The village's concerts are also sponsored by the University of Chicago Medical Center and the Orland Park Prairie Newspaper.

Free parking will be available at the adjacent Metra station and concessions will be available for purchase. For more information, contact the Village of Orland Park Recreation Department at (708) 403-7275.
