Friday will be a big night at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington where country music star Toby Kieth is performing.

Keith was originally scheduled to perform in St. Paul, Minnesota Friday, but when a conflict came up Keith's "American Ride Tour" shifted gears and moved the act to Bloomington.

Fans are encourage to come to the Coliseum early and participate in a free tailgate party across the street.

"Knowing that Toby Keith's fan base is a tailgating crowd we decided to work with B-104 to put on a tailgate party on the north side of the building off of Front Street in the Butler parking lot from 3:30 to 7:30," said Traci Andracke, the assistant general manager of U.S. Cellular Coliseum.

"There willl be entertainment out there for 3 hours, we'll have all sorts of beverages and food for sale, as well as the Toby Keith official karaoke truck will be out there."

As of about 3 o'clock Friday afternoon there were still tickets available for the concert.
