Magic Springs announces 2011 Concert Series

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 at 5:00 PM


This year, the water and theme park is ratcheting it up with an admittedly tighter-than-anticipated lineup.

Highlights include Blake Shelton, who joins Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine on the judge's panel for NBC's new reality talent show, 'The Voice;' Joan Jett & the Blackhearts (above), who commemorate the 30th anniversary of their signature song, "I Love Rock and Roll"; and the incredibly resilient modern rockers 3 Doors Down, who release their first new album in three years the week before their Hot Springs engagement.

The season kicks of on May 28 with country kicker Easton Corbin.

Tickets are available online at the Magic Springs website. Admission for all concerts is free for season pass holders.

Check out the rest of the schedule after the jump.
