Girls About Town: Klipsch Music Center
Yo Yo Yo … Check one two … Indianapolis, are you ready for some awesome entertainment? Well your Girls About Town are! So pack a tailgating cooler and bring your blankets for a heck of a good time at the 2013 Coors Light Concert Series at Klipsch Music Center. Whether you like alternative, rock, country, or heavy metal, this outdoor music venue alongside Sand Creek at the new Southeastern Parkway off I-69 is sure to give you an incomparable live music experience! With about 24,000 seating, grab a crowd of friends and head over to one the 30+ massive music concerts or festivals your newly-named Klipsh Music Center has to offer. Now for those of you who once knew this venue as Verizon Music Center or even Deer Creek Music Center, Don’t Stop Believin’ because although little has changed since it’s original opening 25 years ago, Klipsch has brought new life and new experiences to this go-to and beyond-compare amphitheater! From more-than-ever outdoor liquid lounges set up on the hill, to hip food trucks for the foodie needs in you, to spectacular floral plantings and landscapes at the newly-branded Klipsch, your live music experience has never had more to offer.
For the more discerning music groupie, Klipsch has several different VIP areas as well, for easier access to other foods, drinks, and restrooms located throughout the Music Center and over 6,000 seats in the covered main pavilion. The Sportsevent.com VIP club restaurant will also add a new food and beverage service menu to the club and box seating areas.
There really is something for everyone here with performances from Matchbox Twenty, Maroon 5, Kid Rock, Black Sabbath, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Zac Brown Band and Luke Bryan. Even the “Summertime” hunk, Kenny Chesney, has returned to Klipsch for an unparalleled most-happening live music experience. (click for full schedule)
Owned by Live Nation Entertainment, hometown-based Klipsch has partnered with Live Nation and returned to its roots from Hope, Arkansas, to bring Indiana a re-creation of the tiny shed where the desire to bring a live sound experience to the ears of every listener began. The Klipsch Listening Lounge, with its tin roof facade located in the atrium of the Music Center, is open on concert days right up to when the main act begins. Here, you can demo and shop their products to bring the live music experience into your home.
Wanna have a “Barefoot Blue Jean Night?” The conveniently-located Sleepybear Campground is our pick for a no-hassle before and after hotspot for any show at Klipsch Music Center. It is THE place to be and sure to be one of the best parts of your summer concert experience. Load up your car for a pre-show great time, and enjoy those “Summer Nights” with your concert-going friends. Sleepybear owner Peter Watson, affectionately known as Park Ranger Pete, and his dad, Ed Watson, welcome all for a not-soon-to-be-forgotten good time with shady trees, grilled eats, ice, bonfires, and even local music entertainment. Whether you’re tailgating before or after a concert, just parking, or camping overnight, this place is THE CLOSEST (just across from Gate 3) to Klipsch Music Center. Now that’s music to my ears!
