With Fremont Country Club’s grand opening set for March 6, the 1,000-capacity live music venue has begun announcing shows. Tickets for the April 27 Alkaline Trio concert went on sale earlier this week. And while the Fremont Country Club calendar will be filled mostly with touring club acts, a couple surprises may be in store.
What better way to get some attention and build recognition for a new club than by booking a couple big-time arena acts? We’re hearing Coldplay is already lined up, and one or two similar acts will likely follow. The club’s main booker is Michael Chugg, who has a long history of booking shows in Australia, New Zealand and Asia, including recent tours by Coldplay, Radiohead, Kelly Clarkson, Elton John, Robert Plant, Weezer and Keith Urban, so the club has the right connections.
