Alongside his music, McGraw maintains a career as a successful actor in such films as "The Blind Side", "Country Strong", and "Friday Night Lights."
“After the stellar performances of Maroon 5 and TRAIN, we were able to sign one of the greatest entertainers in music today,” said Marketing and Promotions Manager Dave Pessagno. This will be the biggest concert this area has seen in a very long time,” said Pessagno.
“Through Rob Thomas, Maroon 5 and TRAIN, our venue is now recognized by those in the industry as an event that can support a big-time act. We are also very fortunate to have a Title Sponsor like DICK’S Sporting Goods that cares so much about our community. Their commitment makes it possible to bring such quality entertainment for our customers, sponsors, fans, and players,” said Karedes. “We look forward to our 4th consecutive concert sell-out!”
