subject: [ig-news] nashville river stages update


[sherlyn's note: this is a slightly edited (cut) version
of a message which was sent to the indigo girls mailing
list at netspace.org.]

howdy folks,


i got some more info on nashville river stages (yep, that's the
official name) today.  the official announcement was made today and there
was a feature about it on the 6:00 news this evening.  they didn't
announce the entire lineup, but said that bonnie raitt, foo fighters,
chumbawumba and nashvillians delbert mcclinton and matraca berg were
among the 40 different performers scheduled to play the festival,
which runs from friday, may 1 through sunday, may 3.  this sounds like
it might be patterned after atlanta's music midtown (which, incidentally,
is the very same weekend, and will be featuring many of the same artists).
once i find out the full lineup, i will post it.  indigo girls are scheduled
to play on sunday, may 3, btw.  i don't know what time, though.


3-day passes go on sale this saturday at 10:00 a.m. cst.  the ticketmaster
person i spoke with didn't know how much they would be, but said they would
know closer to saturday.   individual day tickets will be $17.50 + ticket-
monster charges, and will go on sale wednesday, march 25th.  i don't know
the 800 ticketmaster number, but the local number is (615) 255-9600.
if any of you live in the southeastern states, check with your local
ticketmaster outlets and see if they are part of ticketmaster southeast.
if they are, you can buy tickets through them.  for example, year before
last, nashville became part of ticketmaster southeast, which means i
can trot over blockbuster and buy tickets for shows in memphis, atlanta,
charlotte and other cities in that network.


for anyone familiar with the old summer lights festival in nashville,
about the only similarity river stages will share with sl will be the use
of several different stages in different locations within a few city blocks.
i gather that the bigtime acts will play on the stage at riverfront park.
i can't wait!  we must arrange a list meet earlier in the day on may 3rd!


well, that's all for now, folks...


peace,


joan :-d
