Charlottesville Pavilion officials have announced the 2007 Budweiser Concert Season line-up.

So far, four national acts have been locked in, with more to come.

The season kicks off on April 19th with a 'Stop Global Warming College Tour,' featuring Robert Randolph and The Family Band. That show is free.

And the rumors are true, Bonnie Raitt is coming to town on April 22nd with proceeds going to the Charlottesville Free Clinic. OAR will be here May 5th. Vince Gill, Amy Grant, and the Del McCoury Band will perform on July 15th. Finally, John Prine is scheduled for August 18th.

Pavilion Officials also announced the first half of 20th anniversary of Fridays After Five schedule, which kicks off April 20th, with the country rock band, Sons of Bill.

While last year was the first full schedule, this year will be the first season the Pavilion will fully be without its growing pains.

"The big thing is that this is the first season where we are complete. There should be no construction fences, no bulldozers sitting in the background. Our permanent restrooms are going to be done. Our concession plaza is going to be fully open," said general manager, Kirby Hutto.

Tickets begin to go on sale March 23rd. You can buy tickets online, by calling (434)951-2246, or by stopping by Live Arts, Plan 9, or Starr Hill.
