LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The group America will be the first national group on tour to perform at Loeb Stadium.
Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski announced Wednesday that Grammy Award-winning band America will perform at Loeb Stadium on June 30.
“It was a dream of ours, as you know Loeb Stadium was built to be a multi-purpose facility and that’s really what works,” Roswarski said.
America is perhaps best known for big hits like “A Horse with No Name” and “Ventura Highway.” The group was nominated for two Grammys in 1973, Best New Artist and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, winning Best New Artist.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. on the Long Center for the Performing Arts website, longpac.org, or at the box office.
Ticket prices will range from $29, $49 to $69.
People could start pre-ordering tickets on Wednesday at 2 p.m., if they use the promo code LOEB, which will give them access to buying tickets on the website.
The total capacity of the concert will be approximately 2,500 people.
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m., but the doors will open at 6 p.m.
Local musician LD Miller will present a 30-minute opening act. America is about to play a 90 minute set.
The concert is promoted by Long Center and Honeywell Arts & Entertainment, along with sponsorships from Old National Bank, which presented the event, and Indiana University Health.
