by Barca Blog - Here's a picture of Vanderbilt Stadium Friday evening (click to view larger image).
In less than 24 hours, the Commodores' football facility will transform into a music mecca as 35,000 fans are expected to pack the stands to see Dave Matthews Band with special guests Jason Mraz & Robert Earl Keen. It will be the first concert in the stadium since the Rolling Stones stopped in Nashville during their Bridges to Babylon Tour in October 1997.
Tickets are still available for the performance, which is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. CT with gates opening one hour prior (unless you have a special pass). Fans can enter and exit at gates 1 and 3. Beer will be available to purchase, however, no alcohol may be brought into the venue. And in case you're wondering about the setup, the main stage will be located in the North endzone.
Please Note... Parking for Vanderbilt's baseball game against Mississippi State Saturday (1 p.m. CT) will be altered due to several events on campus including the DMB concert. Click Here for details and maps.
I'll close today's blog with the video of the day. Here's one of my favorite Dave songs. Listen to the entire nine minutes and just let it soak in. Oh and sorry, couldn't get any of my Robert Earl Keen songs to pass the censors!
