The Meadows is not the only big multi-day festival coming to Citi Field this summer. Taking place over the course of two days, The Classic East comes to Citi Field on Jul. 29 and 30 with the same lineup as its Jul. 15 and 16 shows at Dodger Stadium: Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Journey, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Undoubtedly inspired by last year’s Desert Trip festival in Southern California — which included The Beatles’ Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, Bob Dylan and The Who — The Classic East and The Classic West were put together by Live Nation with legendary music manager Irving Azoff. Said Mr. Azoff to the New York Times of these events: “Classic-rock radio listeners have been underserved by current festival lineups.”

Tickets for the full two-day event — no single-day tickets will be sold to the public — go on-sale today, Apr. 7. Prices range from $150 to $950, not including fees.
