The lineup for the Mission Hill 2016 Summer Concert Series has been released and there are some big acts headed to the valley.

The summer series runs from  Aug. 5 to 28and will feature Michael Bolton, Melissa Etheridge and Gipsy Kings.

Michael Bolton plays the venue Aug. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

Bolton, the multiple Grammy Award-winning Singer, Songwriter and Social Activist,  has sold more than 53 million albums and singles worldwide. He continues to tour the world every year, all while writing, recording and taping for a wide array of projects spanning music, film, television and theater. Bolton remains committed to humanitarian causes, especially through the Michael Bolton Charities as well as other social and political organizations. Known for his soulful voice and poignant lyrics, his timeless style, charm and good looks have also earned him a spot in several “People Magazine’s Sexiest Man” issues, including 2012’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Next up is  Melissa Etheridge , on Aug. 26.

The American rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Her self-titled debut album Melissa Etheridge was released in 1988 and became an underground hit. The album peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard 200, and its lead single, “Bring Me Some Water”, garnered Etheridge her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female. In 1993, Etheridge won her first Grammy award for her single “Ain’t It Heavy” from her third album, Never Enough. Later that year, she released what would become her mainstream breakthrough album, Yes I Am. The album featured three Top 40 hits, including “I’m the Only One” (No. 8) and “Come to My Window” (No. 25), the latter which scored Etheridge her second Grammy award. Yes I Am peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200, and spent 138 weeks on the chart, earning a RIAA certification of 6x Platinum, her largest to date.

Lastly, the Gipsy Kings, featuring Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, will play Aug. 28.

It has been 25 years since the Gipsy Kings captured the world’s imagination with their self-titled debut album—a record that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing millions of listeners to a unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the band has toured virtually non-stop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost twenty million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians.

Tickets for all three concerts go on sale  April 27  at 10 a. m. To purchase a ticket go to  selectyourtickets.com, or call 250-762-5050 or appear in person at Prospera Place
