Thank you First Ave! Tickets still available for Wilco show, Aug. 20
March 15, 2016 by Janette Law
The Minneapolis Parks Foundation is proud to be First Avenue‘s non-profit partner for its second must-go summer concert at Hall’s Island. Wilco headlines this year’s show, along with special guests Kurt Vile + the Violators.
First Ave put on one of the most talked-about events last summer with its first concert at Hall’s Island featuring 2015’s it-band Alabama Shakes. More than 8,000 people enjoyed awesome music at one of the most incredible (but not yet developed) sites in Minneapolis – right on the Mississippi River and with an incredible sunset view of downtown. Last year, tickets sold out in something like two hours; this year tickets are still on sale (as of March 15, anyway). Don’t miss out!
As First Ave’s non-profit partner, the Minneapolis Parks Foundation receives a percentage of proceeds. Last year’s show raised near $12,500 for MPF! Thank you, First Ave, for your generous support and for bringing the awesome to the Minneapolis upper river.
