Tonight in Chattanooga (With the Newsboys)
Mon., Jun. 13. 2005 11:35pm EDT
Our first concert this week is Tuesday (tonight). It's part of a nine-day event in Chattanooga TN -- the 25th annual Riverbend Festival -- with performers every night, including Kid Rock, Pat Benatar, Boyz II Men, Big & Rich, Cheap Trick, Trace Adkins, Michael McDonald, Pure Prairie League, Spyro Gyra, and Colin Hay (lead singer of Men at Work).
Believe it or not, we're told the best-attended night is Family Faith Night (that's when we play), which is alcohol-free and draws about 80,000 people. This year, one of the biggest bands in Christian music, the Newsboys, will be playing at 9 p.m., finishing up just before we start, at 10:45 p.m.
