BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The 2013 Waterfront concert series will begin later this week. Work crews are busy making last minute changes at the Darlings Waterfront Pavilion.

Alex Gray, president of Waterfront Concerts says they are right on schedule and that's good news for both fans and businesses. Thousands of people will be in town spending money.

John Marko is the manager at the Fireside Inn in Bangor. He says last year the hotel was filled for 11 of the 12 concerts.

Marko says, "Every year we look forward to see who's gonna play on the waterfront cause it helps us obviously, it helps geaghans, it helps the gas station across the street. It helps everybody. It's just a big boost to the economy. So we really love it. "

Alex Gray also says the new venue will make it even more appealing for the fans. Motley Crue is the first band of the season and the show is Thursday night May 16th.
