Grace Potter and the Nocturnals kick off Spring Back to Vail with free Ford Park concert
The lineup of live entertainment and events at Spring Back to Vail, the annual festival that celebrates the close of the winter season, will ramp up on Thursday, April 12 with a free concert in Ford Park from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, who played Spring Back to Vail 2011 to rave reviews, will play a free show in Ford Park on Thursday, April 12, 2012. Named one of the “Best New Bands of 2010” by Rolling Stone and one of VH1's “Artists You Oughta Know,” the band is nearing completion of their fourth studio album, The Lion The Beast The Beat.
The band will be playing in Vail just before their first ever performance at Coachella, and it has been rumored that the band will play songs from their new album at Thursday's show.
Following Coachella, the band will embark on a summer stadium tour with co-headliners Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, a pairing inspired by Grace's duet with Chesney on their CMA Award-winning single and video “You and Tequila,” which was nominated for multiple Grammy and ACM awards and was recently certified platinum for sales of over one million downloads.
There is no opener scheduled for this concert. The venue at Ford Park will open at 7 p.m, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will take the stage at 8 p.m.
