As if prepping for the "American Idol" finale isn't hectic enough, Top 3 finalist and Munhall native Gabby Barrett will give a free concert at 7 p.m. today at the Rivers Casino outdoor amphitheater.

The concert on Pittsburgh's North Shore is open to all, although no one under the age of 21 is allowed on Rivers Casino property, including the parking garage and inside the casino.

Prior to the concert, Barrett will throw out the first pitch at PNC Park before the Pirates play the Chicago White Sox.

"American Idol" will film the short parade as Barrett travels from PNC Park to the amphitheater. Parade-goers are encouraged to make signs showing their support. Temporary road closures and the expected gathering of Barrett's fans will affect traffic on Casino Drive between 4:30 and 6 p.m., according to the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety.

It's going to be a busy day for the 18-year-old with the soulful, country voice.

Barrett will be at Primanti Bros. in the Strip District from 3:30 to 5 p.m. to sample the bacon, egg and cheese sandwich renamed "The Gabby" for the day in her honor.

According to her Instagram page, Barrett also will be at the West Mifflin Goodwill Store at 1 p.m.

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.
