For the first time ever, an old hanger at McClellan Air Park will be turned into a concert venue.

The Jackson Sports Arena is now home to the Jackson Sports Academy, a volleyball and basketball complex for local youth, but on New Year’s Eve the band Switchfoot will headline the building’s first concert.

“If all goes well tonight you can expect more shows in the future at this venue,” said Joe Whalen, the concert’s promoter.

The hangar can hold up to 7,000 people for a concert.
