Ticket Tuesdays — Wilco with Dr. Dog
**CONTEST CLOSED**One of our all-time faves, Wilco, will grace Salt River Fields along with opening act Dr. Dog on Independence Day weekend. The show starts at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 3 and this is just about as classic American rock ‘n’ roll as concerts get. Tickets to Wilco with Dr. Dog start at $30, but what good fortune! This Ticket Tuesday, we’re giving away a free pair of tickets for you and a special someone.
More from AZCentral: “Wilco’s sound is rock and roll the way the Beatles’ sound was rock and roll — a definition elastic enough to take in the Neil Young-gone-Krautrock approach of ‘Art of Almost,’ and the upbeat Motown accents and infectious ’60s organ of ‘I Might.’ Those songs were among the highlights of ‘The Whole Love,’ Wilco’s latest studio release. … [Dr. Dog has] yet to make an album not worth owning. And I wouldn’t need both hands to count the acts whose catalogs are that consistently inspired.”
As an added bonus, fireworks follow the concert. To enter our Ticket Tuesday giveaway, simply tell us in our comment section about your favorite tradition for the 4th of July weekend. We will select a winner using random.org. We’ll allow 24 hours for commenting. Winners will be notified by e-mail sometime on Wednesday, June 17. Comments are moderated and may take some time to appear. Please do not resubmit your comments — one is plenty.**CONTEST CLOSED**

My very favoritest 4th of July occurred (5) years ago when my son and I, along with a small group of friends and their pre-teens, went to the Grand Canyon over the holiday.
We stayed in the GC Village, hiked the south rim extensively, and even made it (7) miles down Bright Angel Trail. We had fun creating ‘discovery journals’ that we filled with animal and plant finds with information. But the best part was escaping the oven that IS Phoenix in July, as the weather in Northern Arizona is quite lovely during the summer months!

We grill out in the afternoon and then head on down to watch A mountain catch fire (lol)… I mean watch the fire works. Then head on back to the house to set off some fire works of our own. That is my favorite tradition, provided that they didn’t cancel the show that year.

The best memories of the Fourth of July I have involve two things – fireworks and friends. Even when I spent the Fourth abroad one summer, those two components were still front and center. I have always especially enjoyed celebrating with individual fireworks that leave much to the imagination. I hope this Fourth will continue to include those vital ingredients at the Wilco concert!

The best 4th of July to date was when I was abroad in Macedonia. I spent the day with 5 Americans and 5 Macedonians, and it became our day’s mission to show our hosts how to celebrate Independence Day right. We tried to recreate s’mores, rootbeer floats, and hot dogs, but our efforts were ultimately unsuccessful. However, towards the end of the long and surprisingly fun night, our hosts surprised us with fireworks on the beach. It was the perfect end to an unforgettable Fourth.

Disregard my second post, the first one didn’t show up for awhile – sorry.

I love fireworks on Independence Day. It doesn’t matter where I am: Flagstaff, Tempe, Chicago, Wisconsin, etc. My favorite 4th of July was when my mom and my sister were traveling through Wall, SD and we were able to get out hands on some large and exotic fireworks, like airborne ones you can’t find in Arizona. We drove to an abandoned parking lot and lit up the whole lot, leaving charred asphalt and taking off like bandits.

I don’t have any particular tradition for the fourth of July, but there is a common trend for my favorite celebrations–fireworks over the water. I’ve watched them from the top of Mount Megunticook, from the docks in Camden Harbor, from aloft a schooner in Boothbay Harbor, and sipping tea on that same schooner anchored off Provincetown. There’s nothing quite like fireworks on the coast!
