RE: Sam Hunt Free Concert Sep 1
Or the reason for a Friday night concert could just be the fact that he has a concert scheduled in Lexington, KY on that Saturday.

RE: Sam Hunt Free Concert Sep 1
As I recall, the attendance at the Reuben Studdard game was about 40,000 and caught the city completely by surprise. No police traffic control was supplied and traffic piled up at the Arkadelphia exit for miles. That UAB lost that game lost a great promotional opportunity.

You can't build a following of people who love the football team by putting on concerts every week.

This is a good season kickoff event (might even be a good annual thing to do with different artists) that can be used to garner attention locally for the program. I'd have ticket sales set up, I'd have Sam rallying the folks, urging them to attend, maybe even give away some luxury suite tickets, and other merch.

Definitely should have lots of people set up to sell tickets, both single game (Sept 2) and season tickets. Maybe have something set up to take donations also. Cash Jar and ability to take credit cards. People were great about throwing $2-5 in a jar at the 1st sons of uab game.. multiply that by % the number attending the concert and could generate a fair amount. (People might not want to spend for a ticket or a shirt but a few dollars is easy)

My fear is lots of Sam fans who care less about UAB football just get free tickets and we do t get revenue or new supporters. Oh well, I'm sure they know what they are doing. i am very excited and it Will be a great show and great way to start to an awesome weekend!



UAB boosters, students, employees, and season ticket holders will get first crack at the tickets

I'm fairly certain the last time he performed at UAB was at half-time of a UAB Men's Basketball game...don't recall him being sacked during it.
