“In 2018, we’re going to utilize the entirety of our one-of-a-kind campus to bring different music genres and styles to the community,” says Michael Goodmon, vice president of real estate, Capitol Broadcasting Company. “Between the Bulls’ championship season, our new music lineup, races and other new and exciting activities, it is going to be a busy and fun spring, summer and fall at American Tobacco Campus.”

All of American Tobacco’s restaurants will be open to serve concertgoers with sit-down meals or grab-and-go goodies.
