    Concerts at Jack Trice (Cyclone) Stadium

    Piggybacking from the "smuggling" thread...

    I've been able to track down some concert listings from JTS. Anyone have more?

    Oct. 1989 - Rolling Stones
    July 1990 - Paul McCartney
    June 1992 - Genesis
    Sept. 1992 - U2
    Apr. 1993 - Farm Aid VI -- This was right around VEISHEA.

    Willie Nelson, with Gov. Terry Branstad in the background. Stage was set up where the South end zone bleachers currently sit.

    Cannot believe it has been 10 years since a concert there. 1994 was a bad year for FB but a good one for concerts.

    Unfortunately, we've probably seen the last of the outdoor concerts at JTS -- at least until there's a way to keep the playing surface from being damaged. Plus, the stage would have to be set in the North EZ now, with Jacobson behind the stage.

    Re: Concerts at Jack Trice (Cyclone) Stadium

    That's the real answer with your April 1999 post. There just aren't anymore acts that can play a Stadium, espcecially state by state. It's one thing when DMB plays at Red Rock, etc. but the outdoor stadium concert days are over.

    Speaking of DMB, they drew over 42K to Folsom Field (Colorado's stadium) in July 2001.

    Yes, but that's like the Messiah heading back to Bethleham. The flock will show if that happens.

    It was grass in 99 they put something over it to protect it. The stage was in the north then.

    Not concerts in JTS, but in 8th grade I saw NSync at Hilton and in 6th grade I made my first and only visit to Carver-Hawkeye, for a Backstreet Boys concert. Ohhhh the good ol' days.

    No wonder Hilton Magic went dormant...it was in full swing, then N'Stync came to town and started the decline. It survived the LE years, but was slowly dying off.

    Thank you for the disclaimer! You really had me worried there for a minute!

    They have to upgrade the sound equipment in JT before they can have a concert in there.

    It would be awesome to see a concert in there with the bowled in endzone. I bet the sound will be better too.

    I doubt a concert would use the existing sound system. If anything needs to be upgraded it would be the video board, it was very annoying when it would always crap out and go crazy during games last year.
