GREAT WHITE Working Out Details For Kansas Concert

Lawrence Journal-World is reporting that "organizers are working out details for an Aug. 22 concert in Russell [Kansas] by GREAT WHITE, the 1980s band whose pyrotechnics are blamed for starting the Feb. 20 fire that killed 100 — including the band's guitarist — at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, R.I.

"The concert would be at the Plains Amphitheater, a bowl-shaped plot of land with no permanent stage and no seats. Organizers say the concert could draw as many as 10,000 fans.

"City Council members and emergency officials objected to having the concert on city property, but organizers Richard Hogan, Brett Holt and Gerald Brown, all of Russell, received permission to have the concert at the amphitheater, which is on property owned by the AmericInn motel." Read more.
