Cities 97 Basilica Block Party
The Cities 97 Basilica Block Party will rock the streets of downtown Minneapolis for its 20th year. This year’s party will take place from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. both on Friday, July 11 and Saturday July 12 on the grounds of the Basilica of St. Mary.
The concert started as the largest gathering of sweaty people in the state of Minnesota, but that changed in about a minute, when the temperature dropped 12 degrees as rains came through.
Mat Kearney grew up in Eugene, Ore., but he told thousands of music lovers at the Cities 97 Basilica Block Party that Minnesota has a special place in his heart.
Tickets for the 18th annual Cities 97 Basilica Block Party will go on sale to the public on Saturday.
The lineup for the Cities 97 Basilica Block Party has been announced Friday, with headliners including Train, O.A.R. and Cake.
