Calling all Dead Heads! The same band who wrote “The Eleven” and Indy Eleven are teaming up for “A Grateful Evening” – the first such celebration of the Grateful Dead hosted by ANY soccer team worldwide.
There couldn’t be a more perfect day for it as Starcat is going to play the Official Tailgate Party for The Indy Eleven’s 1st ever Grateful Dead Night at Lucas Oil Stadium starting at 5pm.
Then, after the match, we’re all meeting back up at The Mousetrap (56th and Keystone) to close out the night with more Starcat celebrating the Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead music catalogues.
For its next home game on Saturday, June 22, Indy Eleven’s fans can join in the tribute of the iconic band by purchasing a special ticket package to the 7:00 p.m. match at Lucas Oil Stadium versus Atlanta United 2. Fans who purchase the Dead-themed ticket package can select between a Grateful Dead/Indy Eleven Split Scarf, a Premium Concert-style Game Poster, or a combination of both, with all items featuring the iconography of the Grateful Dead and Indiana’s Team.
These ticket packages are now available in limited quantities and can be purchased online at indyeleven.com or by calling 317-685-1100. General tickets for this game are already on-sale via indyeleven.com/tickets.
Fans attending the June 22 match can get ready at the Indy Eleven “Shakedown” Tailgate in the shadows of Lucas Oil Stadium, presented by The Mousetrap Bar & Grill. The tailgate concert in the Jobsite Supply Lot – located on Missouri Street across the stadium’s southwest gate – will start at 5:00 p.m. and feature Indy-based band Starcat playing the music of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band.
In celebration of this event, Indy Eleven will have a presence at the Dead & Company concert next Wednesday, June 12, at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Noblesville. Concert goers can get the first look at the limited-edition items available in the special ticket package and learn more about “A Grateful Evening” at the team’s stand located inside Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center. Tickets are still available for the Dead & Company concert via www.livenation.com.
