Grand Opening Of New Arena Is Next Month

The Louisville Arena Authority is making plans for next month's opening of the city's new downtown arena.Authority Chairman Jim Host says final touches are being applied to the riverfront facility in anticipation of an October 10 ribbon cutting. "Vice-Chairman (Larry) Hayes and I took an inspection tour that lasted a long time Friday afternoon. We went through every single inch of that place, to look for any last minute changes that we felt needed to be made. we didn't find anything major at all," he said.Host says the authority will soon launch a communications campaign on traffic and parking around the arena.A concert by the Eagles will be the first official arena event on October 16. Public tours of the facility will be held October 19 and 20. They're free, but tickets must be obtained. They will be available starting October 11 at Ticketmaster, the Kentucky Exposition Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center.
