MEMPHIS, Tenn. - In honor of Bob Dylan's 72nd birthday on May 24th, the first 20 fans to purchase tickets on Friday for the Americanarama Festival of Music on Tuesday, July 2 at AutoZone Park will receive a free slice of birthday cake and four tickets for any Memphis Redbirds game in August.
The Americanarama Festival of Music is headlined by music legend Bob Dylan & His Band and joined by Wilco, My Morning Jacket, and The Richard Thompson Electric Trio.
The concert, presented by Jam Productions, marks the fourth on-field concert that AutoZone Park has hosted, and first since the highly successful Dave Matthews Band and Willie Nelson performances during the summer of 2008. Dylan and Nelson performed the first on-field concert at AutoZone Park in 2005.
AutoZone Park is home to more than 130 events each year, including Memphis Brewfest, AutoZone Family Day, movie screenings, and countless corporate meetings and outings. The unique outdoor experience makes it ideal for large concerts and festivals as a downtown Memphis attraction.
Tickets are available for purchase through the Redbirds ticket office at AutoZone Park, by calling (901) 721-6000, or online at www.memphisredbirds.com.
All seating is General Admission and priced at $65.50. Show time begins at 5:30 p.m. and gates open at 4:30 p.m.
The Redbirds return to AutoZone Park tomorrow for an eight-game homestand against the Round Rock Express (Triple-A Rangers) and Albuquerque Isotopes (Triple-A Dodgers). The promotion-packed homestand will be highlighted by three giveaways, two fireworks extravaganzas, and a Memorial Day celebration.
