YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – He was the Country Music Association’s five-time male vocalist of the year and on Saturday, he’ll be in Youngstown to headline Y Live at Stambaugh Stadium.
Crews are already at Youngstown State University, getting ready to set up the stage for Blake Shelton.
The Ice Castle may be empty now but on Saturday, over 15,000 fans will pack the stands for Mahoning County’s biggest show.
“We work with 42 Event Production and JAC Live, we work together to put the stage together, as well as the sound and lighting,” said Phoebe Breckenridge, with JAC Management. “It’s going to be a great stage show this year. We got awesome video boards coming in, it will just look really awesome as the sun goes down and the stars come out. It will look really great this year.”
Crews will build a stage in front of the visitors’ side of the stadium and get all the seats in place on the football field.
If you’re going to the show, bring cash to minimize food, beverage and merchandise wait times. There will not be an ATM on site.
Stadium doors open at 5:30 p.m.
The tailgate begins at 3 p.m. at the M-70 lot.
There are a few rules for the tailgate. Stay in your designated space. You cannot bring in beer from outside the tailgate lot. There will not be beer for purchase unless you use cash.
Uber and Lyft drop off are available at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Armed Forces Boulevard. That location can change the day of the show.
