Sheryl Crow was recently diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, but it won’t affect her performance at Dix Stadium on Sept. 8, said Valoree Vargo, director of donor services at Kent State.

“We’ve talked to the promoters and talked to the folks and everything is fine,” Vargo said. “We’re really excited about it. It’s the first time in many, many years that we’ve had an event like this at Dix Stadium.”

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster. Students can buy tickets for $20 and $30 to be on the stadium floor. General admission is $35 for a seat in the stands and $50 to be on the standing room floor.

There will also be a tailgate party for the concert from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. outside the stadium on the day of the concert.

Vargo said Kent State is expecting between 15,000 and 17,000 people to attend the show.

Sheryl Crow will perform with Los Lonely Boys and another band that can’t be announced until the end of July, Vargo said.

“But I promise it will be a very exciting band for students,” she said.
