Although not all have sold, Howard Korn, Marietta College director of campus services and chief of campus police, predicts the concert will approach a sellout.
"Tickets are going very well.I've heard the band, and this is a very good group.I expect a pretty full house," said Korn
."They are a bunch of Ohio guys, from Columbus."
Security preparations are well under way.
Because seating in the recreation center is festival style, open to concert goers, with no chairs, Korn
is carefully preparing for the huge crowd, setting up procedures and guidelines to be followed.
"Those who attend the concert need to know that if they are carrying a backpack, large purse, or even wearing a coat, they may be subject to search before they go in," he
"There will also be a number of outdoor events (food vendors, etc.) prior to the concert for those who might come early and be waiting," Korn
said."We're all looking for 75 degrees and a warm, clear evening."
