Time Well Wasted: Brad Paisley To Headline Music Festival At Progressive Field

Country music show latest effort to maximize non-game usage of Progressive Field
The Indians will stage a country music event at Progressive Field on June 11 headlined by Brad Paisley, the reigning Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year. Paisley will be joined by Blake Shelton and Jerrod Niemann for the newly created "Indians Music Festival." Tickets will range from $30-125. The club made the announcement this morning on WGAR-FM, a Cleveland country music station. Like many other clubs, the move marks a further effort by the Indians to maximize non-game usage of their ballpark (Eric Fisher, SportsBusiness Journal). CRAIN'S CLEVELAND BUSINESS' Joel Hammond notes the concert "follows closely the Indians' Snow Days, a winter extravaganza staged at Progressive Field from late November through Jan. 2 that drew more than 50,000 people to the stadium." The "alternate uses of the stadium come as the team's gate receipts have sagged." The Indians were last in MLB attendance last season, drawing an average of 17,345 fans per game (CRAINSCLEVELAND.com, 3/1).
