With spring training right around the corner, there’s no better way to warm up for baseball season than Tempe, AZ’s annual Innings Festival.
Taking place Feb. 25 and Feb. 26 at Tempe Beach Park, the two-day extravaganza marries baseball and rock and roll to create an unforgettable weekend where fans can see their favorite music and sports stars all in one place.
That being said, this year has quite a few bona fide All Stars raring and ready to go too.
Just a few of the biggest rockers on this year’s lineup include Green Day, Eddie Vedder, Weezer, Black Crowes and Marcus Mumford.
On the other side of the diamond, the most notable former MLBers in attendance include strikeout king Randy Johnson, DH legend Edgar Martinez, third baseman extraordinaire Matt Williams, center field virtuoso Mike Cameron (who also hit four home runs in a game) and hard throwing phenom Dontrelle Willis.
And even though we’re approaching the bottom of the ninth for ticket buying options, we’re happy to report Vivid Seats still has inventory available.
At the time of publication, the lowest price we could find on two-day passes was $737 before fees — while that may seem high, be aware that those are VIP tickets that include VIP access, dedicated entry and air conditioned restrooms.
Saturday passes can be snagged for $462 before fees.
$108 before fees was the best price for just Sunday.
All prices are subject to fluctuation.
