Do you watch The Voice on NBC and/or Snapchat? If so, then you know that the Fort Wayne music scene is earning its stripes out there in Hollywood. Good vibes like ours don’t come without a strong local music scene. From the homegrown to the regionally-acclaimed to the national powerhouses, Fort Wayne has a TON of concerts to offer this year.
The Best Concerts in Fort Wayne This Spring
Now for the fine print: Following is my take on what constitutes “the best” of concerts in Fort Wayne, Indiana over a six-week period. This list offers one show per date listed and includes some of the hottest venues in town featuring a variety of musical genres. I would go to all of them if I won the non-existent “lottery of free time” and could devote six nights a week to music. But, life is…so like most of the responsible music-lovers, I’ll have to choose a few favorites to indulge in this season.
