Concerts and shows in Kansas City during July 4th week 2018

For those who have ever said that there is nothing to do in Kansas City, here’s a guide that will prove those folks wrong.

Contrary to popular belief, Kansas City is a fun place to be year-round, but this city especially comes alive during July 4th. The city and surrounding suburbs show great patriotic pride on this special holiday, and to make it even better, here are some of the best concerts and shows that one should check out in KCMO.

Xscape: The Great Xscape Tour 
July 5 @ 7:30 pm 
Sprint Center -- 1407 Grand Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64106 
(816) 949-7100

Everyone who grew up in the '90s has listened to the enchanting sounds of  Xscape. The R&B group has a number of great hits under their belts, and the ladies are hitting the road this summer to bring the nostalgia of '90s R&B back to the forefront, along with brand new hot material just in time for the summer. 

Kesha and Macklemore 
June 26 @ 7 pm 
Sprint Center -- 1407 Grand Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64106 
(816) 949-7100 

The Sprint Center is a crown jewel is Kansas City's crown. Without this premier entertainment facility, it's very likely that the city wouldn't play host to such concerts as Kesha and Macklemore, who will make a stop in KCMO just before the July 4th festivities kick off in earnest. This is a show that many in the region have been patiently waiting, and now, the chance to be among the throng of fans inside the Sprint Center is finally here at last.

Podcasts have become a way of life in the entertainment sphere. There are hundreds of podcasts out there for one's choosing, but one that has broken from the pack has been Watch What Crappens. This podcast doesn't fail in making people laugh, and this summer, the podcast will take their show to Kansas City for a night no one won't soon forget.
