What time do shows at Great Lawn end usually? I have tickets but also a gig that night. Dont want to miss Stevie. Any info is appreciated! Thanks.


Awesome free event in Central Park. Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys and John Mayer playing to help end extreme poverty? Are you kidding me? Can't wait to go!
