Indy 500 live entertainment schedule

May 6,  2005

Live music by talented local and internationally famous acts will mix with the roar of Chevrolet, Honda and Toyota engines at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the month of May.

Musical acts from a wide background of song and sound - from the Rev. Peyton's delta blues Wednesday, May 25 to three acclaimed Christian music bands Saturday, May 21 - will perform on the Coca-Cola Stage in the Pagoda Plaza, directly behind the Speedway's landmark Bombardier Pagoda control tower.

Highlighting the concert calendar is popular rock band The Black Crowes, which will headline the annual Miller Lite Carb Day concert Friday, May 27 on the Miller Lite Stage in the infield. The up-and-coming British rock quartet 22-20s will open for The Black Crowes.

Fans can enjoy live music while relaxing or ordering concessions or souvenirs. All concerts are included in the price of admission to the Speedway grounds each day.
