There is something for everyone on 2018's Minnesota Zoo Concert Lineup! There is nothing like catching a concert at the Minnesota Zoo! Their amphitheater has been rated the best in the state for years and this year, the lineup looks to be your soundtrack to summer! There'll be rock, pop, R and B, 80's, 90's, and 2000 - now.

Personally, the one I'm dying to see is the Queen of Funk, Chaka Kahn (Chaka Kahn...Chaka Kahn...so good you can't say it just once!). Her big hit in the 80's was I Feel For You, But grab any single off the youtubes and you will LOVE it.

Another iconic 80's artist that'll be there is Pat Benatar, who'll also be in Rochester at the Mayo Civic center. It's an acoustic show she's doing with her husband.
