LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Some of the biggest names in the rock and country music world are heading to the Hub City.
"Today (Thursday), we are delighted to announce that Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and John Mellencamp are gonna perform right here in Jones Stadium," said Randy Sanders, spokesman for Llano Estacado Music.
The company sealed the deal to get the Bob Dylan show in Lubbock. It will be held at Jones AT&T Stadium but, because of the construction projects, the concert will only allow seating for 16,000 people.
"Here's the thing," says Jodey Arrington, Texas Tech Chief of Staff to the Chancellor. "The chancellor's plans are to be more aggressive in getting more entertainment here to Texas Tech and utilizing our great assets like Jones Stadium and United Spirit Arena, and other venues on campus to get more entertainment here."
The concert will be August 8th, sometime in the evening. The exact time has yet to be determined. Tickets go on sale June 13th through Select-A-Seat.
