Free postgame concerts for the Tampa Bay Rays haven't been a thing for a couple of years now. But that'll change next week.
Ticketholders to the Rays' afternoon game against the Chicago White Sox on July 21 can get in free to a concert that night by Howard Jones and Men Without Hats at Ferg's Sports Bar, across the street from Tropicana Field.
Any fans with a ticket to that day's game can present it at the main gate for free entry, until the Ferg's courtyard hits capacity. Considering tickets are $24.50 otherwise, that's a decent deal.
Jones is best known for a string of '80s hits, including Things Can Only Get Better, No One Is To Blame and Everlasting Love. And if you haven't heard Men Without Hats' iconic hit The Safety Dance, well, where have you been the last 40 years?
The game starts at 1:10 p.m.; click here for details. Gates for the concert open at 4 p.m., with the music scheduled to start at 5 p.m., "or as soon as the baseball game ends," according to a press release.
