As if we weren’t already excited for summer (seriously, we’re so sick of wearing pants), TODAY just announced the lineup for this year’s Toyota Summer Concert Series — and from legendary divas to our favorite WGWGs, Rockefeller Plaza is clearly going to be the place to be this summer.
TODAY is officially kicking off the summer season with none other than pop superstar Mariah Carey, who will be releasing her 14th studio album later this year. The five-time Grammy award winner — and resident diva — will heat up Rockefeller Plaza on Friday, May 16, for her sixth TODAY show concert. Diva-in-training Ariana Grande will also take the plaza this summer on August 29. The singer will no doubt perform her new soon-to-be-hit single “Problem” off her forthcoming release.
The Toyota Concert Series on TODAY will air live Friday mornings throughout the summer, unless otherwise marked in the schedule below. Check out the lineup, and hit the comments with your reactions!
