Arguably the metro’s premiere venue for such is the OKC Zoo Amphitheatre, 2101 N.E. 50th. And it has extra reason to celebrate its summer concert series: a 75th anniversary. Already announced is a loud, May 13 bow with Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace and Bullet for My Valentine. On the next night, go south — as in Southern rock — with Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top sharing the bill. On July 23, Yes and Asia touch down, with Tim McGraw (pictured) scheduled for Aug. 2. More announcements are forthcoming.
