MTSU co-sponsors Sept. 3 ‘Friday Night Live’ concert downtown to wrap up 2021 series

The final 2021 “Friday Night Live” concert series in downtown Murfreesboro will include some True Blue flavor and participation.

Middle Tennessee State University, in collaboration with Main Street Murfreesboro, is co-sponsoring the free Friday, Sept. 3, event from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the Rutherford County Courthouse square. Featured performance will be by the band Good Rockin’ Tonight.

MTSU and Main Street Murfreesboro invite the entire campus community, alumni and supporters to come out with their lawn chairs to enjoy the music and atmosphere, and even cut a rug in front of the stage if so moved! During intermission this year the National Dance Club will have free dance lessons for all to join in the fun.

The home opener marks the return of the Beer Garden, Kids Zone and debut of MTSU chocolate milk, and, to celebrate the return of fans to a full capacity Floyd Stadium, MTSU will have a post-game fireworks show.

Current forecasts call for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of rain both days.
