Island View offering free concerts

By MARY PEREZ

GULFPORT --Island View Casino doesn't have a venue to present national musical acts but that didn't stop management from scheduling a free Summer Concert Series that kicks off Friday night and runs monthly through September.

The stage will be set up near the parking garage west of Emeril's Gulf Coast Fish House and north of U.S. 90 on the front lawn of Island View. The gates open about 6:30 p.m. and The Gin Blossoms take the stage at around 8, said Wade West, Island View director of marketing.

Known for hits like "Hey Jealousy," "Follow You Down" and "Found Out About You," The Gin Blossoms will release a new album soon. Tickets for a show like this would run well upward of $40, depending on how close you get to the stage, said West. The Island View is presenting the Friday concerts free as a gift to the community, and West said, "I don't know that anybody has done this on the Coast."

He's hoping signs on Interstate 10 will draw people off the highway. "Maybe they haven't thought of coming downtown to Gulfport," he said. "We can accommodate quite a few thousand," with parking in the west and surface lots and shuttles and a sky bridge from the south parking garage.

The concert area will be fenced in, said West. Admission is restricted to those 21 and older in that section, but the stage can be seen from other areas on the property for those who bring children.

Food won't be sold but will be available in the casino.

"Entertainment is a big draw on the Coast," West said. "Gulfport is doing a good job coming back. This just brings more attention to the actual beach area."

That's awesome! I've never been to that one. Sounds like a great reason to go.

I just looked at 2 websites that said 6/6, too late for this one. I caught em back in 2004 at the Grand. I hope they keep this going. Heres the upcoming shows.

Kool & the Gang 7/11

Better Than Ezra 8/15

Ronnie Milsap 9/12

at least they are offering a variety, there won't be the same drunk or stoner there week after week. well maybe if they are within staggering distance.
not much left around there though.

I hope it does well. Maybe let a local band open up that is a similar genre to the headliner?

Gotta think big.
