The dragstrip will be transformed into a “cornfield” for this free concert
St. Louis Region (October 29, 2015) – For the first time ever, officials at Gateway Motorsports Park will be partnering with 93.7 The Bull for the 4th Annual Concert In The Corn held at Gateway Motorsports Park, Saturday, November 7, 2015. Corn and concerts at a race track? Absolutely! Gateway Motorsports Park is the largest outdoor entertainment venue in the St. Louis region, and the dragstrip will be transformed into a “cornfield” for music lovers and tailgaters alike.
“Gateway Motorsports Park makes a perfect venue for an outdoor concert like Concert In The Corn,” said Curtis Francois, track owner and president. “This is our inaugural concert, and we are thrilled to be partnering with 93.7 The Bull to host this event. We have a great musical line up, a tailgating party, tons of parking and seating, and the track is optimally equipped to handle an event for 100 or 100,000 concert goers.”
Officials at Gateway Motorsports Park will be hauling in cornstalks and other visuals to transport music fans from the concrete of the dragstrip, to the starry night of an open cornfield. Fans will have the opportunity to win prizes, meet the musicians, and there will be exciting activities for kids of all ages. There will also be a canned goods food drive to benefit the Salvation Army.
Musical guests include:
Thompson Square: International Country music stars, Thompson Square has topped the radio charts across the Unites States, Canada and Australia with #1 hits “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” respectively.
A Thousand Horses: A Thousand Horses is a fresh fusion of classic sounds – a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones, wrapped up in a modern-country context. The band’s Republic Nashville album, Southernality, is as wild and free and powerful as the name A Thousand Horses implies. This is the result of years of a road-doggin’ pursuit, determination and an against-the-odds struggle that found its rewards by bringing great music to the people.
Broseph E Lee: A full-blown country-rock concert. That’s how fans describe a night with Broseph E. Lee. These musicians raise the bar high and bring a party with every song. Every show includes rock ballads and pop hits spanning from the 80’s to today. With the release of their 2015 EP, “Fill ‘Em On Up,” Broseph E. Lee’s original sound has been well-received, landing opening acts with some of the top names in country music.
