The $50.00 tickets (regularly $74.00 in advance) can be used for General Admission to concerts at Fort Adams State Park on either Saturday or Sunday, so there is no need to decide now which day to attend. These tickets, which will be available December 1 through December 31, may be purchased in person at the Newport and Bristol County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), 23 America’s Cup Avenue in Newport. Offer not valid on reserved seats or for the Friday evening concert at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
