Free concerts announced for GIE+EXPO 2013
Three Dog Night
The Green Industry & Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO) announced two headliners for its free concert lineup for this year’s show, which will take place Wednesday, Oct. 23, through Friday, Oct. 25, at Louisville’s Kentucky Exposition Center. On Oct. 23, country music star Craig Morgan will perform the opening concert at 4th Street Live in downtown Louisville. On Oct. 24, legendary band Three Dog Night will follow suit with a concert on the same stage. Both headliners will start their concerts at 9 p.m.
Morgan boasts an impressive body of work with 14 top-10 hits, including “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “Almost Home,” “That’s What I Love About Sunday” and “Tough.” He’ll also sing some of the songs from his newly released album, This Ole Boy.
A multi-talented performer, Morgan also stars in “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors” on the Outdoor Channel. It is a 30-minute reality show that offers fans a fly-on-the-wall look at Morgan’s extreme lifestyle at home, touring and in the great outdoors — hunting, aerial bow fishing, bungee jumping and skydiving. Currently in its third season, the award-winning TV show airs Sundays at 11 p.m. Eastern time on Outdoor Channel.
During a 40-year span, Three Dog Night has racked up some of the most astonishing chart statistics in popular music, including 21 consecutive top-40 hits. Among them were three No. 1 singles, 11 top-10 singles and 12 straight Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)-certified Gold LPs. With their customary impeccable harmonies and exciting arrangements, they will perform fan favorites, including “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” “Joy to The World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala,” “One,” “Liar” and “Celebrate,” as well as new songs such as “Heart of Blues” and “Prayer of the Children,” an a-cappella ballad.
The band is made up of founding members Cory Wells and Danny Hutton on lead vocals, original band mates Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards) and Michael Allsup (guitar), and completed by Paul Kingery (bass and vocals) and Pat Bautz (drums).
The entertainment for Oct. 25 will be announced soon. Nissan Commercial Vehicles, an exhibitor, is GIE+EXPO’s stage sponsor for all three nights of evening entertainment.
GIE+EXPO — the ninth-largest trade show in North America — is sponsored by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute Inc., Professional Grounds Management Society, and Professional Landcare Network. The first day of the show will be Dealer Day, with the final two days of the show open to all industry participants.
