Staff Report

According to Larry Wilson, an executive with SMG, the booking company retained by U.Va. to bring performances to Grounds, it’s not likely that Charlottesville will see another Rolling Stones-type concert anytime soon. “Large stadium shows like this one are rare these days, few and far between,” he said.

However, Wilson said, we will see smaller concerts and family shows, which are currently being planned for the new John Paul Jones Arena, when it opens next fall.

Exactly what those performances will be remains a secret. “It’s up to the acts themselves to make the announcements,” Wilson said. But he predicts we’ll be hearing something within the next couple of months.

And if Wilson’s taking suggestions for the next big act he should entice to Charlottesville, several people who attended the Stones concert said U2 would be a great follow-up.
