NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On Thursday morning, the general manager of LP Field asked the Sports Authority Board for permission to build a small stage in the north end zone, as part of ongoing improvements.
The plan is still in its early stages, and all ideas have not been worked out. But the wanted to get approval for when they decide whether they want to build the stage before football season.
"It will increase the fan experience that comes into the stadium. With the many upgrades that are in construction at this particular time, we think that this will only add to it. And that's dependent, there's a lot more discussion that needs to be had before this actually becomes a stage," said LP Field General Manager Walter Overton.
The stage would be used for performances for before, during halftime, and after the games.
In October, the Tennessee Titans proposed a $25 million plan to make upgrades to LP Field. Construction is underway to install new speakers, LED video screens and scoreboards on each end of the field, and more elevators.
All improvements were scheduled to be finished in time for the 2012-2013 season.
