Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff :: An Insider’s Tips
Are you guys as excited as I am for this weekend?
I saw Garth Brooks in Lafayette six years ago but when he announced his Sugar Bowl Kickoff Concert, I knew I had to go back. I didn’t buy tickets at the initial sale of them back in July, and I thought that my chance was done. Well, two weeks ago I looked at Vivid Seats and saw tickets in the 600s for only $14! So at the last minute, I decided there was no better time to see him again! I got tickets for all four of us and am taking my 8 year old to his first “real concert.” I ended up scoring 4 tickets in the lower level for less than $75 (including fees, which are always high) per ticket, and I can not wait for Saturday.
But There Are Some Things You Should Know
I thankfully talked to a friend from college that works close to the organization, and I got some first hand and SUPER IMPORTANT info on how to navigate the day. There are some schedule changes and need to know information that anyone (and specifically if you’re bringing kids!) should be aware of:
Tailgate Town is going on from Noon till 5:00PM on Saturday, September 2nd
The Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff will include a full day of activities as events begin at 12:00PM with NewOrleans.com Tailgate Town hosted by New Orleans & Company. Staged in Champions Square at the Caesars Superdome, NewOrleans.com Tailgate Town (free admission) will feature multiple performers and football-themed activations to entertain fans of all ages as a lead-in to the main event inside the Superdome.
Tickets for Louisiana’s Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff with Garth Brooks, Lainey Wilson, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are still available! Tickets are super low priced on all resale websites; you DO NOT have to have tickets for Tailgate Town though.
Tailgate Town opens at noon. DJ Jevity, Alex Smith, and Austin Bishop will provide the musical entertainment for Tailgate Town. Bishop will open the outdoor event at 12:30 p.m., followed by a set by Alex Smith, and then the closing performance by DJ Levity. As this is not a ticketed event, fans will be able to leave Tailgate Town and re-enter later in the event.
