The Zac Brown Band concert with special guest Blackberry Smoke scheduled for Friday, May 27 on the Great Lawn at Louisville Waterfront Park will now be held in the KFC Yum! Center, the sister facility of the Kentucky Exposition Center. The show, presented by Land Shark Lager, will begin at 7 p.m. as previously scheduled in the new venue.
National Shows 2, the event promoter, announced the move due to recent flooding and current water levels of the Ohio River that have affected the condition of the park. All tickets previously purchased for the show will be honored at the new location and those ticket holders with VIP general admission will be granted early entry into the KFC Yum! Center at 5 p.m. General admission ticket holders may enter at 6 p.m.
The Louisville show is included on the two-time Grammy winner’s summer tour that will feature the southern-flavored rock sounds from the band’s most recent studio album, You Get What You Give that includes hit singles Colder Weather, Knee Deep with Jimmy Buffett and As She’s Walking Away with Alan Jackson. Since releasing their debut album The Foundation in 2008, the group has produced six consecutive No. 1 radio singles and scored Entertainer of the Year nominations in 2010 from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.
Tickets for this show are still available for $55 VIP general admission and $45 general admission, advance purchase. Tickets will also be available the day of the show for $50 general admission. Ticket price does not include facility fee and all seating is general admission as there is no reserved seating for this event. Tickets may be purchased at the KFC Yum! Center, the Kentucky Exposition Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center Ticket Offices.
