Pat Patrick, the chamber's president and CEO, recalls that the concert was intended to reinvigorate the stadium as a music venue and serve as a fundraiser for the chamber. However, about a month before the concert, the chamber came to realize that with the city's rental fee, concession costs and lackluster ticket sales the concert just wasn't going to cover its costs.
