Daily’s Place Announces Summer Concert Lineup

Serena Summerfield

The Daily’s Place Amphitheatre is set to open next to EverBank Field in downtown Jacksonville in May.

The new venue is slated to host a lineup of musical acts, including the Doobie Brothers and the Dave Matthews Band.

Outside the construction site that will eventually become the multi-million-dollar amphitheater, the smooth sounds of the Doobie Brothers’s music greeted members of the public Friday.

Bold Events President Mark Lamping said the concerts will provide a needed boost to downtown activity.

“We want to do as much as we can to have more people work downtown; to have more people visit downtown; to have more people live downtown,” he said.

So far, Daily’s Place has scheduled a cross-section of classic rock and 1990s alternative bands including Chicago, Foreigner and Third Eye Blind.

Lamping said people can buy tickets to individual shows or reserve one seat to see them all.

“We are selling a special ticket that if you buy in the Terrace Suite, you receive tickets to every Daily’s Place show, you receive food and beverage show and the average price on those will be $3,625,” he said.

Tickets for the first show  are expected to go on sale as
