ZZ Top, the Steve Miller Band and the Goo Goo Dolls are among the artists who will headline the Memphis Botanic Garden's summer concert series.

The 11th annual "Live at the Garden" season will commence June 4 with Texas blues-rock combo ZZ Top and end Aug. 12 with alt-pop outfit the Goo Goo Dolls and singer-songwriter Michelle Branch.

In between, several other big name acts will appear.

Classic rock icon Miller appears June 25; past Garden performer Michael McDonald will pair up with fellow '70s hitmaker Boz Scaggs for a show July 8; and on July 22, Huey Lewis and the News -- who recently released the Stax tribute album Soulsville -- will return to the Garden for the first time since 2007.

"We're really happy to have Huey Lewis back, as well as Michael McDonald returning with Boz Scaggs," said Live at the Garden co-director Sherry Misner. "With the Steve Miller Band and ZZ Top, I think we've tried for 10 years to get each of them, so we're very excited. And having the Goo Goo Dolls and Michelle Branch just adds that fresh cut to the lineup."

Season lawn passes for all five shows are $175 and go on sale Monday.

"But we have a limited number of those available," added Misner.

Individual show tickets cost $39 plus fees and will go on sale April 18. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, area Schnuck's stores, or (800) 745-3000.

Season tables for "Live at the Garden" are already sold out.

Gates open 6:30 p.m. and showtime is 8:30 p.m. for all concerts. For more information go to liveatthegarden.com.
