Kent, OH, United States
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow will headline a concert at Kent State University on Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. at Dix Stadium in Kent, Ohio. The “Centennial Campaign” concert to benefit the Campaign for Change Scholarship Fund serves as a celebration of the conclusion of Kent State’s Centennial Campaign.
The festivities will begin with a tailgate event from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the stadium grounds featuring food and local vendors. The concert, the first at Dix Stadium in more than 20 years, kicks off at 6 p.m. with Los Lonely Boys, whose debut single “Heaven” earned them a 2005 Grammy for Best Pop Performance. Next up will be O.A.R., a band that has transformed itself from local Ohio State University bandmates to Billboard chartbusters with songs like “Shattered (Turn the Car Around)” and “Love and Memories.” Topping off the evening is singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, who has won nine Grammy Awards.
