Leave a comment on this blog post and you’ll be entered to win a pair of tickets to see Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit outside at Memorial Stadium in Asheville on Sept. 21.
The show is presented by Orange Peel Events, a venture formed to produce events outside the confines of The Orange Peel and expand community partnerships. Over the past couple of years, the venture has produced a series of shows at Highland Brewing’s meadow stage and Central United Methodist Church.
Isbell started this year by winning Grammy Awards for both Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song for their work on The Nashville Sound. Two years earlier, Isbell won the same two awards for work on the album Something More Than Free.
Memorial Stadium, which sits on the rise above Asheville’s McCormick Field baseball stadium, has been home to sporting events for years, although is did host a few concerts during Bele Chere, Asheville’s former, long-running downtown music festival. (Isbell played Bele Chere in 2011, but not at Memorial Stadium.)
City officials are planning for significant improvements at Memorial Stadium. They’ll spend $6.5 million in 2020 on improvements such as new turf, new seating and general improvements in 2020, with money coming from the $17 million bond package approved by Asheville voters in 2016.
