Jimmy Buffett’s concert Oct. 25 at Taco Bell Arena goes on sale tomorrow (see below), but the Arena still has not shared any details about the possibility of tailgating, a major aspect of the Parrotheads culture. After I contacted promoter AEG Live hoping to get something (anything!) for Buffett fans, I received an email Wednesday from Taco Bell Arena’s marketing manager: “A concert is outside the FB tailgating program/spots arranged through the BAA/Athletics. We are still working through the details with University Parking and will communicate information as soon as we can. It is a heavy class schedule night, as opposed to most games being on Saturdays, so this requires careful coordination. We will post information on our website, www.tacobellarena.com, as soon as we can.”
Concerts that go sale tomorrow:
Local headbanging favorite Fly2Void will perform its first gig in almost a year and a half Friday, Sept. 21, at the Knitting Factory. “We are coming out all guns blazing,” says guitarist Fahd Ismail. “We are enthused to bring a fresh set list to the stage, and also a few surprises that we have never done on stage in the past.”
Openers will include Half the World, The Fav and Exit Prose. Show starts at 7 p.m., and free tickets are available at Fly2Void’s Facebook page.
The outdoor Brit Floyd concert slated for Friday, Sept. 21, at the Eagle River Pavilion has been moved indoors to the Revolution Center in Garden City. Normally, moving an outdoor show inside is a bummer. But this does give people a chance to check out the new venue.
