Two “Fan Jam” and two “SkyBlast” concerts will highlight post-game activities at Pittsburgh Pirates games, beginning June 1 with a visit from Kool & The Gang.
The band will create its own “Celebration” as the first of the two Fan Jam acts after the 7:15 p.m. game against the Cincinnatti Reds.
Blues Traveler will be the second in that series, performing after the 4:05 p.m. game June 15 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
SkyBlast concerts will follow when Third Eye Blind performs after the 7:05 p.m. game Aug. 31 with the St. Louis Cardinals. Neon Trees will be featured after the 7:05 p.m. game Sept 21 with the Reds. Both of those concerts also will feature Zambelli fireworks.
Details on tickets for those games, season tickets or a variety of other plans are available at 412-323-5000 or www.pirates.com/tickets.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
