It was revealed early this month that the all new Daily’s Place amphitheater and practice field that is attached to EverBank Field will play host the rock legends Doobie Brothers and Chicago on July 1, 2017. The construction of the one of a kind facility is set to be completed in May.
While Shad Khan has done some major renovations to EverBank Field including, among others, the building of the worlds largest outdoor scoreboards and a pair of outdoor pools with a breathtaking view of the field, his endeavor with Daily’s Place may be his boldest yet. The Jaguars will be the only NFL team that has a state of the art amphitheater actually attached to its stadium. This move will bring bigger acts to Jacksonville and should bring them in frequently. It will also serve the growing momentum of the Downtown cultural renaissance that includes an area known as the Elbow and a host of restaurants, bars, breweries, and distilleries. The amphitheater will be a spring board for other businesses in the area.
On the heels of the announcement earlier this week that the Jaguars would be launching a sister company called Bold Events that’s primary focus will be to coordinate events at EverBank field and the adjacent Daily’s Place, the Jaguars hosted a press conference Friday, January 27 to announce some of the acts that will be coming to Daily’s Place in the coming months.
Mayor Lenny Curry called this “a special day.”
Both Curry and Jaguars President Mark Lamping spoke glowingly about partnerships and working in tandem with others.
Lamping also announced several new founding partners of Daily’s Place, including St.Vincent’s Health Care, FIS, and Swisher International. In addition, he announced the official backstage partner Rimrock Companies.
The big reveal included Zac Brown Band, O.A.R., Natasha Bedingfield, Dave Matthews, Third Eye Blind and more. Here’s the full list of the reveals (via Tad Dickman):
