“and the first concert at the new in Kansas City” What is the new in Kansas City?

The new “Livestrong” Stadium, home to Sporting KC. In English, the new soccer stadium across the highway from the Kansas Speedway.

Not only a great cause, but the music is always first class. You might even get a Buffalo Springfield show as Neil will be touring with them around this time. Reguardless, any chance to see Neil Young and Willie Nelson should not be missed!!!
