March 17, 2006 - Knoxville's celebrated free outdoor concert series, Sundown in the City, will return to Market Square in downtown Knoxville opening on Thursday, April 13 with a concert by rock legends Little Feat. Knoxville's own Garage Deluxe will open for Little Feat.

Sundown in the City began on Market Square in 1997 with a single concert and has grown over the years to a weekly event that attracts thousands of people to Knoxville's center city. The series has been cited as one of the major catalysts in helping to spark Knoxville's growing downtown revitalization.

Last year's concerts drew capacity crowds estimated at 8,000 - 10,000 people every Thursday evening.

"Sundown's an exciting event, and we're especially proud of it," says Ashley Capps, President of A. C. Entertainment, which created and produces the series. "It's not just a concert, but a community celebration. It's helped to demonstrate the tremendous spirit and vitality of our city - and that spirit has been contagious. Plus, it's a lot of fun."

This year, Sundown in the City will once again run for 12 weeks, every Thursday night beginning at 6:00 p.m. from April 13th through June 29th.

The shows in the twelve-week series are:
