Entrance fee slashed for Wynona Judd Alive@Five concert

Concert-goers will save a little bit of money when they come to hear the commanding voice of country star Wynona Judd at Alive@Five on Thursday, July 18.

The concert, which starts at 5 p.m., will set attendees back $10 instead of the usual $15. The Dirty Gems and Roses & Revolutions are set to open the show.

This is the second time that the Downtown Special Services District, the organizer of Alive@Five, is lowering the price of admission — a means of boosting lower-than-usual attendance at Downtown Stamford’s popular summer concert series.

As one half of country duo the Judds (with her mom, Naomi), Judd was one of the most popular female country stars of the 1980s. As a solo artist, she sustained her popularity (three of her albums went platinum) while expanding her sonic palette (pop, roots rock, blues, gospel, Southern R&B). Judd launched her new band, The Big Noise, two years ago, and she plans to release a new LP this year.

    The new name around town for this event has been “Dead at Five”. No one wants to go with this lineup, the price to get in and of course we’ve all heard about the obscure security measures this year.
    Don’t get me wrong, after Boston, I’m all for some tighter security, some…but to go through all the insanity at the gate to get in for the ID checks only to get ID’d again once you’re inside? Way to treat the people like criminals!
    Whomever picks the acts should wake up–cater to your demographic, don’t just throw random people up on that stage?
    Oh and way to go with NOT hiring LOCAL bands this year to start the shows. No battle of the bands this year took a vital night of revenue out of the picture for the LOCAL bars and hiring out of state bands was just a slap in the face to the LOCAL talent around here (as well as their fans)!
    Either cancel Alive at Five next year and put the money towards something else, (hey how about bringing the music back to the Arts and Crafts on Bedford–you know, two days, two acts, a lot cheaper for DSSD) or come up with a hell of a way to make it up next year.
    Alive at Five has been getting worse and worse the last few years. Time to move on to something else.

    Hire better bands. That’s a big reason why no one is coming. Who the hell wants to see this old, washed up broad?”

    Totally correct. The line up is so poor its not funny. Plus the criminalization of the patrons is retarded.
