United Spirit Arena sets up for Centennial Closing Ceremony

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - At the United Spirit Arena on Friday crews are working hard to get everything set up for Saturday's main event.

"We've got such an array of performers, just someone that everyone is going to identify with and they are the legends of the Lubbock music industry. They put us on the map," said Chairperson of the Lubbock Centennial Committee Linda Gaither.   

Several musical acts all with Lubbock ties will join together to celebrate the Hub City's 100th birthday. "Mac Davis, Joe Ely, Richie McDonald, Jay Boy Adams, Terry Cook, Terry Allen, Ralna English, I hate to leave anyone out, David Kneupper, David Gashen," said Gaither.   

And many more a night you cannot miss out on. Not only will it be an audio performance but the music will play in-sync with video that will tell the story of Lubbock.

"I just wasn't prepared for the emotion of seeing the history of our city come across with the present performers," said Gaither.   

Now 6,000 thickets have already been sold for this show tomorrow, but there are still some available the prices range from $5.00-$15.00.
