Stage To Be Set Up

On Main Street For

Free Preview Event;

Many Streets Close

More details concerning the upcoming local concert by The Band Perry are being finalized and announced by the Greene County Partnership, which is coordinating arrangements for the free concert on Saturday, March 30, in the Greeneville Historic District.

Local, regional and state officials have been working for weeks to prepare for what may well be the largest free public outdoor concert in the history of Greeneville and Greene County.

The 6 p.m. concert is being presented by the Greene County Partnership and sponsored by General Mills.

During the one-hour concert, The Band Perry will preview new music from their forthcoming second album, "Pioneer," to an expected crowd of thousands, followed by a time of signing autographs for fans.

According to a news release from the Partnership provided late Friday afternoon, Saturday events will include a press conference and an invitation-only Meet & Greet session. High security will be evident in every phase of the Saturday festivities.

The Greeneville Police Department will be closing downtown streets as soon as possible after 5 p.m. Friday, March 29, for erection of the performing stage, which will be located on North Main Street near the Greene County Election Commission office, facing south toward the downtown area.

The closing will involve Main Street from Spencer Square to Summer Street and will remain in effect throughout the concert, according to the news release.

Portions of Depot and Church streets closest to Main Street will also be closed, although entrance to churches having Easter Weekend-related Saturday services will remain clear.

No vehicles will be allowed to park on the street in the closed-off areas of the downtown area, and vehicles which violate the restriction will be towed at owner expense, the release pointed out.

Bus shuttle service will be provided without charge beginning at noon on Saturday, from parking areas at two locations: Hal Henard Elementary School (Vann Road) and the Greene County Fairgrounds (Fairgrounds Road).

The buses will drop off concert-goers at the corner of McKee and Main streets from the Hal Henard lot, and at the corner of College and Church streets from the Fairgrounds lot.

Bus pickup and return to the parking lots will continue after the concert until the autograph session has been completed.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held at Hal Henard School.

The school, of course, has a much smaller capacity than would be possible at a street concert in the downtown area.

The news release stated, however, that any decision to move the concert in the event of bad weather will be made -- and announced -- 24 hours before the concert.

More details about arrangements will be announced next week.

For more information on the concert, please call the Greene County Partnership, at 638-4111, or the Town of Greeneville community information line, 639-7106.

Information is also available on the Partnership Facebook page or the Town of Greeneville's Facebook page,
