Saturday’s Eli Young Band concert at SIU Arena will be the first concert event where beer will be sold at the venue. Governor Bruce Rauner approved a measure allowing alcohol sales at campus events last summer, and the SIU Board of Trustees approved the plan back in December.

Prior to now, alcohol had only been sold to people in club areas at the Arena and suites at Saluki Stadium. Plans are in still in place to sell beer at both Saluki football and basketball games later this year.

Saturday night’s concert also features local favorite “Murphy 500” as opening act, along with Logan Mize.  Tickets are still available at siusalukis.com.
