LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —

We're just two weeks away from Guns N’ Roses coming to War Memorial Stadium; it's the first major concert being held there in nearly 16 years.

Preparations will be underway in just one week when hundreds prepare the stadium for a concert versus a football game and that means covering the field to protect the turf.

They've already removed the goal posts to build the stage, which will take three days and 5,000 seats will also be brought in for field seats.

“The stage and steel will come in on August 1st and there's 18 steel trucks that come in that have to be unloaded, the stage has to be built, it's three days’ worth of building a stage,” said stadium Executive Director, Jerry Cohen.

Just recently the layout of the concert has changed, sections 4, 5, 27 and 28 are now blocked; some paid more than $200 per ticket for those seats.

Cohen tells KATV Ticketmaster will be re-ticketing some with comparable seats, but some who bought seats in sections not blocked off may have a different view of the stage.

"That was done through the Guns N’ Roses production people and the promoter which is Live Nation," said Cohen.

On Friday, Ticketmaster had tickets on sales for $30.

War Memorial Prepares to Host Guns 'N Roses

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - War Memorial Stadium is gearing up for the Guns 'N Roses concert Saturday.

Stage hands, steel workers and catering staff have been on site working every day. It's the first time in 17 years for War Memorial to host a big name concert

"Saturday night, they came in and laid the floor on the turf. They worked yesterday on odds and ends so they could start stage construction today," Jerry Cohen, Stadium Manager, said.

Cohen says it will take three days to build the stage which will be 144 feet wide and 77 feet deep. He says it is best to arrive early. Gates open at 5 p.m. Saturday and there are still tickets available at ticketmaster.com.

ITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Fans are gearing up for the highly anticipated Guns N' Roses concert coming to War Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

THV11 spoke with fans spanning multiple generations. They all said this is going to be one of the best concerts Arkansas has ever seen.

Mark Albert has been to 17 Guns N' Roses concerts over the years. He even saw them in 1987 when they were opening for Alice Cooper in Dallas. He's gotten backstage passes and met multiple band members personally.

"Meeting them back then was cool, but now they're more mellowed out," he said. "Back then anything could happen at any time with them."

Albert said he never thought they would come to Arkansas, but he has high hopes for the upcoming show.

"Production wise and definitely ticket wise, this is one of the biggest shows to hit Arkansas for sure," he said. "You just don't get bands with the originality they have and nowadays, other bands just don't live on like this."

The band certainly has a wide fan base filled with people of all different age groups. John Walls is in his early 30s and said he's been listening to the band for 20 years.

"I know every song and I listen to them all the time," he said. "My friends think I'm crazy, my wife thinks I'm crazy, and I just don't care."

He works at an Arkansas university and said he still sees college students coming in with Guns N' Roses shirts on. He expects younger people to be at the concert at War Memorial just like they were at the Guns N' Roses concert he attended just last week in St. Louis.

"My wife had gotten me the concert tickets for St. Louis and I was so excited because I had never seen them and it was a bucket list type thing," he said.

When he found out they were coming to Little Rock too, he decided he might as well just go to both! He said he's looking forward to an even more explosive show than he saw in St. Louis.

"The fireworks outside War Memorial are going to be beautiful and just crazy," he said. "I've seen what Razorback games are like here and I can only imagine what a Guns N' Roses concert will be like."

A marketing director for Verizon Arena said War Memorial's doors will open at 5 p.m. on Saturday and the opening act should begin around 6:30 p.m. Guns N' Roses should be ready to perform around 7:30 p.m.
