The “Let’s Go Back Tour & Concert Series” (Let’s Go Back) brings free concerts to richly grand, historic, and nostalgic United States Local Communities. A premium concert series for residents to enjoy in their own community Lets Go Back is the 70s, 80s, 90s, and Present Soul/Pop/R&B/Jazz/Latin/Funk/Disco/ Gospel/ Rap

We seek out key, emerging locales, that afford a significant backdrop for the ever-growing Communities and those that have no concert series for its residents. Usually other localities in the area have their own concerts—inconveniently causing residents from surrounding districts to have to travel some distances to enjoy these events.

A high-end concert series would truly serve to highlight a community’s magnificence. This means, that those communities could benefit from the annual influx of dollars that are brought into other said localities. The “Let’s Go Back Tour & Concert Series” is just the vehicle needed to generate that much-desired traffic into those communities. The positive monetary effect to the community is also be noteworthy to mention.
