'Today,' 'The Early Show,' 'Good Morning America' and the Battle of the Summer Concert Series

One of the many awesome things about summer? Why, morning-show concert series, of course! If you live in or around the New York metro area, or plan to visit, you can see these shows live; they’re free with passes, and a reasonable degree of determination. Whether you choose to gather with hundreds — or thousands — of like-minded fans at the crack of dawn, or witness the performances from the comfort of your living room, you will experience one of the more star-studded summers of recent memory (The Early Show does not air their concerts live; we’ve included the airdates of those concerts when available.):
