17,500 for end stage concerts.  Surely one of us in here will get a ticket.

http://www.arenaauthority.com/docs/Fact%20Sheet%20New.pdf

from what i understand they are selling 10,000 tickets (unless they need more).  basically the floor and the first level.  the floor, or at least some of it will be GA.

ha ha...i know..i think it went something like this:

CEO of KFC: well we've created this fabulous new arena, anyone have any really catchy names?

bunch of KFC execs chewing on biscuits: "Yum...nom nom nom...yum yum"

CEO: there you have it, the YUM Center. Excellent work, people...back to your TPS reports..
but come on...there's nothing sexy about poop. Nothing.  -bbill

My Morning Jacket to Play Long Awaited Hometown Show With Very Special Guests, The Louisville Youth Orchestra and Wax Fang
[highlight]On Friday, October 29th[/highlight], My Morning Jacket will be performing at University of Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. Supporting the band will be the Louisville Youth Orchestra (LYO) and Louisville band Wax Fang. One dollar from every ticket sold will be going to the Louisville Youth Orchestra Continuing Education Scholarship, which raises money for at-risk youth to be able to attend school. The LYO was founded with the mission to provide high quality musical experiences and the opportunity to perform for the benefit of the Louisville community and its young musicians regardless of race, creed or economic circumstances. It is one of the oldest and largest youth orchestras in the US. The show will also continue the tradition of creating a “Local Louisville Village” inside the KFC Yum! Center, providing locally based businesses and non-profit organizations with a presence at their show.

[highlight]Tickets for the show go on sale to the public on Saturday, August 14th at 10AM[/highlight]. A limited amount of tickets will be available at Ear X-Tacy on Thursday August 12th at 10AM, in celebration of the store’s 25th anniversary and its new location at 2226 Bardstown Road.  In addition, My Morning Jacket will also be hosting a pre-sale to fans beginning at the same time.  Check the MMJ shows page for information regarding the pre-sale, and other My Morning Jacket shows.


:::: Dream Sequencccccee::: Sweet jeebiss, I'll be in CA at the Jacket show on August 14th, trying to log on somewhere at 10am to buy tickets to the Jacket show in Louisville one week after the 5 Great Nights of Jacket shows in NYC...... ss ssss ssss///|||+++\\\\*pinch*  I guess I might not realistically make it, but what fun to fantasize (and even funNer to actually try and work it out in my head)...........

Turning in my vacay request today! This is the best news I've gotten in a long time. My favorite band playing during my favorite time of the year... and I get to head back to the Bluegrass state and hang with all my KY people. This. Is. Fabulous.

At the L'ville '08 show there were a number of booths set up for local businesses and organizations.  I think some had goods for sale and some just had information about their cause.

http://www.livenation.com/1800ASKGARY-Amphitheatre-At-the-Florida-State-Fairgrounds-tickets-Tampa/venue/107257

I still call any venue Ive been to by the original name, so if I knew this place's non-corporate name Id call it that, but I think this is still better than KFC Yum! Center as you could at least call this place "the Gary" or "the 1800" or something

just call it "the bucket."

unfortunately, it's all about sponsorship $$$$$ these days.    if i had a few extra million, i would have bought the rights and named it jim james gym.
