For the past several days it has not been a matter of if
Farm Aid would play in St. Louis this year. The question has been where
in town organizers planned to stage the concert.
That's because the organization has been dropping hints
like crazy this month on its Twitter account pointing to St. Louis. Then, this week, Farm Aid
began sending out press releases inviting the media to attend a major announcement
at 11 a.m. this morning at the Soulard Farmers' Market.
Thanks to this morning's St. Louis Post-Dispatch
I need not venture down to the market today. The paper reports in front-page fashion
that the concert will be October 4 at Verizon Wireless Ampitheater.
Tickets for the all-day festival benefiting family farmers and featuring Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson and Dave Matthews go on sale July 25 through Live Nation
and at the Verizon box office.
