The same act was scheduled to perform in Two Harbors in the summer of 2022 as well, but organizers had to cancel the show due to "unfortunate circumstances" in the organization of the event.

Tickets for this summer's Shenandoah show in Two Harbors will go on sale on Thursday, February 1.

The second act coming to Two Harbors this summer is the one and only Bellamy Brothers.

The Grammy-nominated act hit the scene with their hit "Let Your Love Flow" in 1976, continuing their string of memorable hits that include songs like “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)", "Old Hippie", "Lovers Live Longer", and "Redneck Girl".

The Bellamys will be headlining the Two Harbors Heritage Days Street Dance, putting on a free show on Friday, July 12 in Downtown Two Harbors. Organizers say they will make more details for this free July show available as we get closer to the event.

Lovin’ Lake County executive director Janelle Jones shared excitement for these two upcoming concerts, saying in a written statement:

“We are thrilled to bring two award-winning acts to Two Harbors this summer. We will strive to bring nationally recognized shows to our community for the enjoyment of our residents and those visiting the beautiful North Shore."

See What Minnesota's License Plates Looked Like The Year You Were Born

Nothing beats a nostalgia trip. It's always fun to see how things looked the year you were born and how much they've changed throughout the years.

Minnesota's license plates have certainly gone through many evolutions. The first "license plate" was actually a rectangular black leather automobile license tag with a brass number '1' on the center front. It was issued by the State Boiler Inspector in the State of Minnesota in 1903.

The first Minnesota license plate as we know it was issued in 1909. Let's take a look at that license plate and then all the plates that followed, along with some interesting Wikipedia knowledge as we go. We've certainly come a long way!
