With the opening of Aggie Park drawing near, fans who plan to attend the Aggie Park Kickoff Concert are asked to register at tx.ag/AggieParkConcertRegister.
The Sept. 2 concert headlined by Robert Earl Keen ’78 is free of charge, thanks to sponsors, but registering attendance will allow The Association of Former Students to accurately estimate the resources needed to help the audience have a safe and enjoyable experience.
The number of expected attendees will help determine resources such as the numbers of water stations, restrooms and event staff, so concert-goers are sincerely asked to help by clicking tx.ag/AggieParkConcertRegister and taking just a few seconds to RSVP.
Making the concert possible are sponsors led by Southwest Airlines, the Office of Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp ’72, the Office of Texas A&M President M. Katherine Banks, and Bob ’85 and Kelly ’86 Jordan. They and others will be recognized at the event.
A new Aggie opening act has joined the lineup: Julianna Rankin ’18, a New Braunfels singer-songwriter who has opened for acts such as Stoney LaRue, will start the show, followed by The Barn Dogs, a band of current A&M students, and prominent Texas singer-songwriter Max Stalling ’89. Headlining is Keen, a Distinguished Alumnus of Texas A&M, in his last Aggieland appearance as he bids farewell to touring this year.
Details for concert-goers on food, drink, parking and other questions have now been added to the Aggie Park website.
Details on these and much more are in the FAQ; please share the link with fellow attendees!
The concert will take place at The Stage at Aggie Park – one of the many new sites being created as Aggie Park’s development transforms 20 acres at the heart of A&M’s campus into a premier green space offering locations for gathering and recreation.

The development of Aggie Park is being entirely funded by private donations, with generous donors providing an estimated $35 million. The Association of Former Students is leading the fundraising effort as well as providing contractor and project oversight, and will turn the park over to Texas A&M University upon completion for generations of the Aggie Network to enjoy.
