Over the years, Irsay — the billionaire owner of the Indianapolis Colts — has built up one of the most impressive collections of iconic rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia, which will also be on display. Among his more high-profile purchases in recent years are Ringo Starr’s first Ludwig drum set in 2015, Prince’s Yellow Cloud electric guitar in 2016, and Kurt Cobain’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” guitar last year for $5 million. Three weeks ago, Irsay added Eric Clapton’s “The Fool” 1964 Gilbson guitar, which he purchased during a November auction for $1.27 million.

Guy, Wilson and Gilbbons, as well as REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and J. Geils Band’s Peter Wolf, will play with Irsay’s band, which features some of the rock world’s top musicians, including drummer Kenny Aronoff (Paul McCartney, John Mellencamp), guitarist Mike Wanchic (Mellencamp), bassist Mike Mills (R.E.M.) and guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Though the event is free, space is limited and fans must register in advance at Additionally, when they register, attendees are encouraged to donate to Kicking the Stigma, an initiative launched by the Colts and the Irsay family, to raise awareness about mental health.

Irsay has held similar concerts previously, including playing a Colts Kickoff Concert in September at Lucas Oil Stadium to herald the start of the Colts’ season. Performers at past shows have included Mellencamp, John Fogerty, Stephen Stills, Vince Gill, Robert Randolph and Natalie Merchant.
