The 2011 “Shed” concert season is shaping up

without comments


Some big names are coming to Blount County when the 2011 concert sesaon kicks off in April at “The Shed” at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson (1820 W. Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryville), and that doesn’t even count “The Shed Sessions” winter series (James McMurtry, Fred Eaglesmith, Ray Wylie Hubbard) that we told you about a few weeks ago.

Over on the website for “The Shed,” venue organizers have shared some of the confirmed dates for the forthcoming concert season. They include:

  • April 3: Unknown Hinson
  • April 9: Big Gun (AC/DC tribute)
  • April 23: John Anderson (of “Swingin’” fame)
  • April 30: Todd Snider
  • May 27: Mustang Sally
  • April 28: Marty Stuart
  • June 11: Goose Creek Symphony
  • July 1: Ray Wylie Hubbard
  • July 2: The Outlaws
  • July 30: Blackberry Smoke
  • Aug. 20: Bo Bice
  • Sept. 3: Kentucky Headhunters

Individual ticket sales are still a ways off, obviously, but here’s a bargain for ya — you can go ahead and purchase a “‘Shed’ Series” pass for $175 that will get one person into all shows this season. Only 200 are available, and they’re on sale now — so be thinking about Christmas for the live music fan in your family. Given that the bigger names are usually $15, that pass is a bargain.

But even if you don’t want to go that route, here’s the beautiful thing about “The Shed” — when it comes to ticket prices, what you see is what you get. If it says $15, that’s the exact charge — no fees, no service charges, nada. You pay the amount the concert lists for. Ain’t that a refreshing thing?
