NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — For the first time, Geodis Park will play host to something other than a soccer game. Shania Twain will host an inaugural performance at the stadium, marking her return to Nashville for the first time in five years.
Thousands of fans will descend upon the stadium including Brittany Hale, who will be making the seven hour drive from West Virginia.
“‘You’re Still the One’ was actually me and my husband’s wedding dance song,” said Hale. “So that one is extra special to me. I said I’ll probably Facetime him or go live whenever that one comes on.”
Businesses are also bracing for the Shania Twain takeover.
“I think it’s going to look like one giant bachelorette party,” said bartender and server at Smokin Thighs, Abigail Teffeteller.
The Wedgewood Avenue business has stepped up staffing in preparation of the crowds.
“People are trying to make reservations, saying that they’re going to be nine women coming in for the Shania Twain concert and they want to get dinner real quick before,” said Teffeteller. But she warns seating at the restaurant will be first come, first serve.
In a press release, Nashville Soccer Club’s CEO Ian Ayre said, “hosting top artists for concerts was one of the key focuses for our stadium design and it is fantastic to see this come to fruition.”
The show starts at 6:30 p.m., gates open at 5 p.m. and parking lots opens at 4 p.m. Parking must be purchased in advance of your arrival to Geodis Park. There will be designated ride-share drop-off and pick-up areas, and attendees can only bring a clear bag or a small clutch.
