Wanna work at the Ford Amphitheatre?
Hey kids, how would YOU like a job in the rock concert industry? Sounds glamorous, right? Well, not exactly...
The Ford Amphitheatre is hosting a job fair this weekend for ushers, ticket-takers, guest services reps and the like. In other words, it ain't exactly like you'll be in charge hat maintenance for Kenny Chesney (above) or walking Gwen Stefani from her trailer to the stage, arm in arm.
But hey, you might get to see some concerts for free -- and this summer's lineup at the Ford Amphitheatre is a great one. Chesney, Coldplay, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, Jimmy Buffett, Kid Rock, Marilyn Manson, Depeche Mode, Brad Paisley, Dave Matthews Band and more.
The job fair is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 28, at the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa. Arrive via the Orient Road gate, then follow the signs to park and enter through the VIP entrance. The job fair is open to folks 18 and up; bring an ID for on-the-spot hiring. For details, call (813) 600-1021.
