The 2019 edition of the Moon Tunes concert series in Riverside Park won’t have a band shell in place, but it is expected to have a renovated bandstand and new benches.

A bandstand dedication concert is tentatively scheduled for May 2, with the lineup of musical acts still up in the air, said Terry Bauer, founder and chief organizer of Moon Tunes.

The official kickoff of the Riverside Park concert series will be June 6, and organizers are kicking it off the same way they gave been since 2012, when it was an afternoon affair called Noon Tunes. Grammy winner Bill Miller will again be the first performer of the season.

The finale of Moon Tunes will be a special six-hour Saturday 50th anniversary Woodstock show on Sept. 7.
