The summer 'Rockin' With Robert' concert series returns to Upper Alton next week. The Upper Alton Association has hosted the concert series for the last 9 years. The concerts are held on the third Tuesday of each summer month, beginning next Tuesday, June 19th. The event is free and features live music and family friendly entertainment at the Robert Wadlow Statue, located on College Ave on the SIUE Dental School campus.

Great Rivers and Routes Tourism Bureau spokesman Stephanie Tate tells The Big Z the first performer this year will be the duo of Ralph Butler and GiGi Darr.
