PHOENIX — Golf and music fans alike got the news they were waiting for Friday when the Waste Management Phoenix Open finalized its 2017 Coors Light Bird’s Nest concert lineup.
The annual concert series is a huge draw for fans, as it keeps one of the wildest tournaments in golf partying well into the night at the venue within walking distance of TCP of Scottsdale.
The fun begins Wednesday, Feb. 1 with a country flair, when Jake Owen and special guest Chase Rice open the party. The country theme continues Thursday with Toby Keith and The Band Perry.
