They’re already warming up.

Officials haven’t announced this summer’s inaugural concert lineup at the still-under-construction Coney Island Amphitheater, but bands are busy selling tickets anyhow. A search of ticket-sellers — including Ticketmaster, which owns the seaside amphitheater’s operating company Live Nation — reveals that at least six acts have signed on to perform.

Perhaps the biggest group slated is classic rock pioneer Boston, which will blow in from Beantown on Aug. 10, according to the band’s website.

Here’s the fullest lineup we could find:

Staten Island comedians Impractical Jokers, who are no strangers to Coney Island, will yuk it up on July 1, according to a Ticketmaster listing.

Nebraskan funk–rockers 311 (not named for the popular New York complaint line) will take the stage on July 16 alongside Jewish reggae icon Matisyahu, who lived in Crown Heights for years before defecting to the West Coast, a search of Ticketmaster’s website shows.

White-boy stoner reggae act Slightly Stoopid plays July 23, according to artist-tracker

Alt-metal rockers Deftones will set ears ringing on Aug. 5, according to Ticketmaster.

And similar-veined Shinedown is set to play two days later on Aug. 7, SongKick reports.

Celtic punks Flogging Molly are having a seisĂșn on Aug. 26, according to ticket purveyor

Amphitheater management did not return a request for comment, but the full concert schedule is due out mid-April, a representative said.

Tickets for the shows range from about $35 to upwards of $70. None of the acts appear to be part of the free, Seaside Summer Concerts Series that the borough president’s office puts on — organizers have not released the series’s schedule.
