All snark aside, we've got to give kudos to Bold Events and everyone else involved in the amphitheater programming. They've outdone themselves selling the venue to touring companies and established a nice diversity of acts (would really be nice if they could get some Latino artists) and the ticket buying public has responded in kind.

A quick crunch of the numbers show that based on current scheduled acts and advanced tickets sold, Daily's Place is on pace to be one of the top 25 outdoor amphitheaters in the country when you factor in the possibility of events for Florida-Georgia, Jags home game weekends, and a possible big-time New Year's Eve bowl game event. No small feat given that they haven't even held a concert yet and are competing with another regional established outdoor concert venue with its fair share of sold out shows. We'll see if they can maintain this pace (many of these acts may have been offered reduced fees or incentives to be performance pioneers), but so far this is looking like a win-win public-private partnership.

Shad Khan / Mark Lamping/ Jaguars organization -- they don't half-ass, gang. We need to go ahead and give them their props.

They generated a *really* creative solution to a situation that presented multiple problems in downtown Jax. That's no small feat. And are promising more creative solutions to come.

Might just be me but I'm going to love checking that place out. I'm already trying to figure out a way to get a FAMU performance of some sort put in there.

Good P.R. piece from a trade magazine:

Damn, maybe I need to join the Jaguars staff.

That's pretty good if 75% of people purchasing tickets have never been to a Jag game, the more people venturing into DT the better

That quote jumped out at me too. That would be outstanding if true and hopefully lesson the paranoia about no tickets being available to non-season ticket holders :)

I think this is going to be amazing and will be a Jax public/private winner.

Looks like the color-changing LED's for the roof have been installed:

Daily's Place is going to look really nice at night, particularly from the bridges.

D-Day is near and the show will go on.

“Daily’s Place will be open and ready to welcome live music fans this Saturday,” said Jaguars and Bold Events President Mark Lamping.  “We’re eager to introduce Northeast Florida to this new venue and kick off a full year of concerts and events featuring a diversity of musical genres.  Daily’s Place is a landmark project in the ongoing revitalization of downtown Jacksonville, and we’re thrilled to open our doors and turn up the volume.”

Lamping emphasized the uniqueness of the 5,500-seat facility, saying that the sightlines will be superior to other venues of its size. Balconies are 115 feet from the stage with what Lamping called “the worst seat in the house” only 150 feet from the front of the stage.

“Our partners at LiveNation were in here this week and they were just blown away,” Lamping said.

[1] Scrambling to get some concrete work done leading into the amphitheater



[2] Walkway at rear of the 3rd level balcony and stairway up from ground floor



I'll be very curious to see how they handle the staging Saturday night;

how the sound system bounces that sound off the fabric of that roof;

how Derek's guitar solos soar, etc.

It should be an incredible night of sound.
