BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Crystal Bridges and the Momentary today announced a lineup of artists for the 2023 Live on the Green concert series, bringing together some of the most impactful musical acts of the past several decades on the Momentary Green. The series kicked off in April with a sold-out performance from multi-platinum hip-hop pioneers The Roots, and will continue through the fall with renowned artists, including Brothers Osborne, Rina Sawayama, Wu-Tang Clan, and newly added Grammy Award-winning band Wilco.
On July 15, the Momentary Green will come alive again with a performance by country duo Bothers Osborne. Standing as nine-time Grammy nominees, the duo scored their fourth Vocal Duo of the Year trophy at the 55th annual CMA Awards, in addition to being named ACM Duo of the Year three times. General admission tickets are $49.50, student tickets are $25, and premium tickets are $200. Active military and veteran tickets are also available for $39.50.
Newly minted British-Japanese pop star Rina Sawayama will take the stage on October 6. Described by Lady Gaga as “an experimental pop visionary who refuses to play by the rules,” Sawayama fuses multiple pop genres into her own unique sound and voice that leaves viewers utterly spellbound. General admission tickets are $40, student tickets are $25, and premium tickets are $200.
Wilco, who just announced their fall tour, will make a stop at the Momentary on October 27. The upcoming tour follows the release of Wilco’s most recent album, last year’s “Cruel Country,” hailed “a magnum opus” by The New York Times and named one of the year’s best by the likes of Rolling Stone, Variety, Uproxx, and more. The show will include special guest Nina Nastasia. General admission tickets are $59, student tickets are $25, and premium tickets are $200.
And hip-hop lovers will want to return to the Green on October 28 for a performance by the Wu-Tang Clan, one of the most critically and commercially successful hip-hop groups of all time. Wu-Tang shot to fame through their uncompromising brand of hardcore rap music. Among its members are multi-platinum-selling solo artists, multi-platinum record producers, Grammy winners, TV and film stars, screenwriters, product spokespersons, business owners and, most recently, major motion picture composers. General admission tickets are $89 and premium tickets are $200.
All tickets can be purchased at the Momentary website. Museum members, members of the military, and students receive special prices for select shows. Wilco tickets will go on sale to the public on June 9.
In 2022, the Live on the Green lineup offered something for everyone with a mix of genres and artists including Old Crow Medicine Show with Brittany Spencer, Run the Jewels & Big Boi, Japanese Breakfast, The War on Drugs, Lyle Lovette & John Hiatt, and more.
Live on the Green concert series, presented on the Coca-Cola Stage, is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company, Cox Communications, Hugg & Hall, Visit Bentonville, the Scout Guide Northwest Arkansas, Vizzy, Bike Rack Brewing Co, and Fox Trail Distillery.
