And yeah, Carolina Kickoff is a stupid name for this -- ECU'ers are upset of course that it isn't being called East Carolina Kickoff.
Is it at ECU? If you google Carolina Kickoff you get something from UNCCH that they've apparently done for decades.

Yeah it's what they've called the new yearly concert series at Dowdy-Ficklen -- this year is Eric Church.

Athletic department isn't the one managing it, but they at least should have dropped the suggestion to not call it Carolina Kickoff. They may have though.

Regardless of the university situation which is important, it makes sense to decipher Eastern Carolina anyways in my opinion, residents are particular about calling what's east of 95 Eastern Carolina.

The name itself is bad but the fact that UNCCH actually has something called Carolina Kickoff that apparently has existed 70+ years makes it much worse.

Just seems so strange to see Kid Rock opening for anyone especially Eric Church, this should be a weirdly interesting show without question. Kid Rock on his own sold out Walnut Creek last summer with ticket prices for almost all seats no higher than $20. On this Carolina Kickoff show, the cheapest seats are $40 and that is for way up in the top level of the bleachers. Most decent seats are $100 and up.

I can see a good amount of people leaving after Kid's set.

I would agree they could have picked a better name, however I've lived here 30 years and never heard of Carolina Kickoff...at Chapel Hill or elsewhere. I suspect many others have also never heard of it. Wouldn't be enough to keep me away from the concert though.

I love the line up. Kid has changed his image and some of his newer stuff is good. If he doesn't play this it is an opportunity missed:

That detour doesn't make much sense.

Ugly as the drive may be, it's the next street up that connects Memorial to Downtown LOL
