Setup underway for "The Bob Dylan Show"

By Ben Lawson  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Some of the biggest names in rock and country music hit the Hub City this Saturday. The Bob Dylan Show, featuring Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp takes the stage Saturday evening at Jones AT&T Stadium. The performance is scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m.

Before the show begins, though, the stage has to be set up. That's what crews were busy doing Thursday. They began to setup the actual stage around 6:00 p.m. During the afternoon they put down portable flooring for the stage to sit on, as well as flooring for field seating. Site Coordinator Nigel James tells NewsChannel 11 they'll be room for about 2,000 people on the floor.

He says "The Jones" is a unique setup for the crew; they even have to hoist the P.A. about 18-feet higher than usual to make sure folks in the stands will hear.  "Normally on this particular tour that Bob's been doing with Willie and John for the last four years, it's always been AAA ball parks. This is slightly different," James said. 

James expected to have the stage up noon Friday.  Then, they have to load all the equipment, but they can't bring a semi down the ramp.  They'll have to transfer everything to three 24-foot flat-beds, and bring them down the ramp to the stage.
