ASHWAUBENON — The Resch Expo will have its first practice as a live venue with a concert by In This Moment and Black Veil Brides for a leg of The In Between tour.
The hard rock double project at 6:15 p.m. on October 26 is the first concert announced for the new $93 million building inaugurated in January next to the Resch Center. DED and Raven Black will open.
This makes In This Moment one of the last bands to play at Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena (in 2017 with Hollywood Undead) before it was torn down in 2019 and one of the first to play at Resch Expo, which now stands where the 60-year-old arena once did.
Tickets are $44.50 for general admission and $49.50 for reserved seating. They will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at ticketstaronline.com800-895-0071 and the Ticket Star box office at the Resch Center.
PMI Entertainment Group, which manages both Expo Resch and the Resch Center, plans to use the 41,000-square-foot Hall C, one of three at Expo, for concerts. Its capacity for such events ranges from 2,768 for various seated configurations to 4,271 for all-general admission shows.
PMI hopes the space will help fill the void for touring shows too big to play at the 1,000-seat Meyer Theater in downtown Green Bay but not big enough to justify the Resch Center Theater, a scaled-down configuration of 3 500 plus arena seats. the next door.
Life-size dinosaurs are coming to Resch Expo in June
The Resch Expo will also host Dino Stroll from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 26 and 27.
The tourist attraction features more than 75 realistic, life-size dinosaurs, some of which are 25 feet tall and 60 feet long. Animatronic dinos have moving body parts, including eyes and mouths, as well as breathing movements. There are also synchronized sounds and water sprays as part of the recreation of the Mesozoic era.
Guests will be able to touch some of the dinosaurs. Children can explore dinosaur skeletons, fossils and eggs. There will also be “roaming dinosaurs” and entertainment by the Dino Band.
Tickets are $20 and must be reserved for timed admission slots at bigtickets.com. Children under 2 and military and veterans are free. Masks are mandatory.
