BATON ROUGE -- The nationwide series of concerts called “Gridiron Bash” have been postponed, according to MSL Sports and Entertainment, creator and producer of the event.  Among the postponed concerts is LSU’s Gridiron Bash event featuring Kid Rock and Sara Evans that was to be held in Tiger Stadium next Friday night.

MSL said it will postpone Gridiron Bash until this Fall or the Spring of 2009.  The announcement comes on the heels of an NCAA interpretation of Gridiron Bash relating to student-athlete participation and the change this would cause in the format of the events at the 16 participating universities nationwide.

With the exception of three participating schools, including LSU, all of the Gridiron Bash events were slated to take place on April 18, the evening before spring games.  The Friday evening events were designed to kick off the 2008 football season and revolved around a fan competition with the winning school receiving $1 million for its general scholarship fund, a pep rally with the football team and coach, and live musical entertainment.

Refunds for tickets already purchased will be issued through university box offices and  Any text votes that have been placed in association with the fan competition will not be billed.
