Generals Welcome Avalon For Postgame Concert
Christian Rock Group Will Perform Live After Generals Game On March 15
March 6, 2002
Greensboro, NC - The Greensboro Generals of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) are pleased to announce the Christian rock group Avalon will hold a concert after the Generals game on March 15 against the Greenville Grrrowl. Avalon becomes the fifth act to perform in the Generals season long post-game concert series. Other performers during the season have been Ratt, Marty Stuart, Sister Hazel, and Seein' Double.
Avalon released its fifth album Oxygen last year. Their first single from that album “The Glory” became their 13th song to reach number one on the Christian charts. Their long list of awards and achievements include 16 Dove nominations, four Dove awards, two gold records, and a Grammy nomination last year for best pop Christian Album of the Year with Joy.
The March 15 game against Greenville is scheduled for a 7:30 face-off. The Avalon concert will take place shortly after the game is over in the Greensboro Coliseum Plaza, at approximately 10:15.
Prior to next week's postgame concert game, the Generals have three home games in three nights this weekend. On Thursday night at 7:00 they host the Richmond Renegades, and Friday night at 7:30 they'll battle the Roanoke Express. This Saturday at 7:30, also against the Greenville Grrrowl, is “Turn Back the Clock Night.” The Generals will wear replica jerseys of the first professional hockey team in Greensboro, the 1959 Greensboro Generals of the Eastern Hockey League. In addition, the number five jersey of ECHL Commissioner Emeritus Patrick Kelly will be retired in a pre-game ceremony. Kelly, one of the founders of the East Coast Hockey League and the person for whom the league championship trophy is named after, was a member of the 1959 Generals. Finally, the first 3,000 hot dogs sold at the game on Saturday night will only cost fifty cents. Both Friday and Saturday's games are Greensboro News & Record Family Nights at the Greensboro Coliseum. You can get a family four-pak of tickets, four popcorns, four Pepsi's, and a News & Record newspaper for only $28. You can also get a family two-pak for $14, which includes two tickets, two popcorns, two Pepsi's, and a News & Record newspaper.
Tickets are available for this week's games at the Greensboro Coliseum box office Monday through Saturday from 11:00 – 6:00 and through the first period on game nights.
