Did A TV Station In Rockford, Illinois Just Leak A Major Concert Announcement?
Rockford’s WIFR may have let slip a top-secret concert announcement! If rumors are true, it looks like the BMO Harris Bank Center is about to host one of the biggest country bands in the world, AGAIN.
But how did this information get out? And who is responsible for this scoop of the century? Let’s investigate.
Phase 3 of BMO Center Construction Officially Underway
First things first, let's talk about what was supposed to be the main news story of the day: the official start of Phase 3 of the BMO Harris Bank Center construction.
The project includes updates like escalators, a grab-and-go shop (like inside United Center), the traditional box office "kind of" going away, and more.
The big changes prior to Phase 3 helped some big events get planned inside to BMO Center in Rockford.
Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live and sold-out performances like country band Old Dominion and Bert Kreischer were huge wins for nearby restaurants, shops, and Embassy Suites Rockford Riverfront.
It appears WIFR leaked a major announcement regarding a concert at The BMO Center that may have been meant to be kept under wraps until a later date. Either that or their information is inaccurate.
Did WIFR-TV Leak A Concert Announcement Before It Was Time?
The news report focuses on the updates inside "the big orange box" but, at the end of the story, squeezed in a concert announcement all nonchalantly.
According to the report, the country band Old Dominion is returning to BMO Center.
Country Music Band Old Dominion was said to be booked and coming in the fall months.
This is odd because Old Dominion was just in Rockford on February 10. Usually, bands/acts as big as OD don't return to the same venue in the same city in less than a year.
Did WIFR let the cat out of the bag a little too early or is the show information fake news?
