The New York Mets just announced the first performer for their postgame concert series for the 2016 season! Andy Grammer is kicking things off on June 18th following the Mets game against the Atlanta Braves. The concert is included with your ticket and takes place about 20 minutes following the game from a stage behind second base. Artist typically play full sets (around 10 songs or more!) and recent performers have included Boyz II Men and Austin Mahone. Baseball & a concert under the stars sounds like a perfect Summer night to us! Tickets for the game are on-sale now. Stay tuned for more artist announcements!

The New York Mets couldn’t have picked a better night for the final show of their concert series. It was a perfect late September night that kicked off with hundreds of young dance and cheer squads from the tri-state area doing a fun routine to songs by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande. Dance Cheer Night meant there were significantly more teenage girls than usual in the stadium – oh, and the fact that Austin Mahone was performing after the game! Between the cheerleaders and the fangirls in attendance, it’s safe to say that it was one of the loudest crowds Citi Field has ever seen (especially whenever Austin Mahone showed up on the big screen).
After the game (which the Mets ended up winning 2-1 in the 9th!), a stage was quickly rolled out behind 2nd base for the concert, which started just after 10:30pm. Austin performed a 12-song set, including an acoustic section that showcased his vocals and guitar playing. And we all know he can dance! The one man boy band showed off his smooth choreography to hits like “Banga Banga” and his latest, “Secret,” which sounds like a 2014 update of a 90s Backstreet Boys song (and is the Secret Fangirls theme song). Austin even invited 1 lucky fan on stage to serenade during “U.” We always knew he was a great dancer, but this was the first time we got to see his choreography up close, and we were majorly impressed.
Austin Mahone Mets Concert Series Set List
1. “Banga Banga”
2. “Say You’re Just A Friend”
3. “Shawty Shawty”
5. “Human Nature”
6. “All Of Me”
8. “Till I Find You”
10. “All I Ever Need”
11. “What About Love”
12. “MMM Yeah”
We can’t wait to see who the Mets will have in the lineup for the 2015 concert series! Besides Austin, recent shows have included Boyz II Men and Third Eye Blind. It’s a fun way to see your favorite artist, and to spend a perfect summer evening with some baseball, music and BBQ (or Shake Shack, or a burger…the food options at Citi Field are endless).
We try to go to a couple of baseball games each summer. And what better time to go than when the team is hosting a post-game concert? The New York Mets have a tradition of summer concerts, which in previous years have included Third Eye Blind and 50 Cent. But we are extra excited about this year’s lineup, as it includes some of our faves: 90s boy band Boyz II Men, and the one man boy band Austin Mahone!
Any ticket to the game will get you admission to the post-game show, and in the past artists have played near-full sets (around 10 songs). Visit the Met’s website for more info.
