Quantcast

Legendary songwriter threesome to perform at ABS

Bob Dylan is taking top billing for the July 19 show that will also feature singer, songwriters John "Cougar" Mellencamp and Willie Nelson.

It's an exciting use of the county's Alliance Bank Stadium, home of the Chiefs Baseball, the Washington Nationals farm team -- and outdoor concert. Harkens back to the old Rich Stadium mega-concerts of the 1970s on the outskirts of Buffalo.

Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney held a 10 a.m. press conference at the stadium Friday morning April 24 to announce this show. Which comes on the heels of the announcement that The Dave Matthews Band will also be at ABS on Aug. 4.

Dylan, Mellencamp, Nelson are no strangers to CNY as they have all been here within the last couple years -- but never at this venue and never together.

It was reported by John Mariani of the Post Standard that "Their earlier date (than The Dave Matthews) will make Dylan and company the first pop music concert at the stadium since the Allman Brothers Band played there in 2000."

Both these show are being promoted by JAM Productions Ltd.
