Consider taking advantage of a last-minute discount to attend this evening’s concert at Muzzy Field featuring Journey’s former lead singer Steve Augeri and Russell Thompkins, Jr and the New Stylistics.
Randy Alexander, a Reach Foundation executive, said this morning that ticket prices at the gate have been slashed sharply thanks to the generosity of Channel 8, a sponsor of the 100th birthday celebration for the ballpark.
The cheapest tickets have been reduced from $26 to $10 apiece.
Alexander said that reserved seats in the outfield are $30 at the gate while lawn tickets are $20 each and bleacher tickets are $10 apiece.
“It’s going to be a beautiful night,” Alexander said.
He said the bands are excellent and play their original hits. “These are not cover bands,” he said.
The Stylistics had 17 #1 hits on the rhythm and blues charts, he said, and Journey has a reams of pop standards.
City officials said everything is going well today after yesterday’s rains. There are booths setting up this morning for everything from the city Republicans to animal shelter advocates. There’s lot of food as well.
A carnival is set up in the parking lot beyond the left field fence.
Tickets are available beginning at 10 a.m. in the tent near the Spanish-American war soldier at the entrance to Muzzy Field.
The concert begins at 5:30 p.m.
Free fireworks will follow the concert.
There are events all day at the historic ballpark, too, from disc golf to an umpire’s clinic. Opening ceremonies are slated for noon.
The discounts at the box office cannot be combined with any other discount offers.
