Free Summer Concerts in New York City
This summer, once again, The Today Show and Good Morning America are battling for your attention by sponsoring free summer concert series featuring big-name artists in New York City.

The good news: Free concerts featuring a wide range of artists including the boy-band trifecta of New Kids on the Block/98 Degrees/Boys II Men, One Direction, Michael Buble, Maroon 5, Chris Brown,and many more.

The bad news: You have to get up really early. Shows start at 7:00 A.M.

The Today Show features morning concerts throughout the year, but the schedule really heats up in the summer. The 2013 Today Show Toyota Summer Concert Series will take place Friday mornings (and on some special additional dates as indicated in the schedule below) on the plaza at Rockefeller Center (between 49th and 50th St. near 5th Ave.). The Friday shows start at 7:00 A.M., but plan to arrive no later than 6:00 A.M. if you want a decent view. Viewing is on a first-come, first-served basis.
