Pop concert plans unveiled for Bradford Bulls stadium

Odsal Stadium will be transformed into a major concert venue, bringing some of the biggest names in music to the Bradford Bulls’ historic home.

The Super League outfit is in talks with high-profile bands and solo artists about performing at the ground, with the first three-day concert planned for May bank holiday weekend next year.

A stage will be built at the away end of the pitch, with capacity set at 25,000, as part of the club’s plans to redevelop the stadium over the next three years.

Bulls’ general manager Ryan Whitcut said: “We’re trying to make increasing use of the stadium, which is a vast bowl that lends itself perfectly to hosting pop concerts.

“We’re looking at the big names who have previously gone to Leeds or Manchester coming here to Bradford and performing as part of their UK tours. We’re still negotiating with the agents and management of the artists, but what I can say is that they will be big names who have never been to Bradford before.”

Since the club was taken over by Bradford restaurateur and businessman Omar Khan in September, strides have been made to open the stadium on non-match days.

The Trevor Foster Bar is open seven days a week and other events are now being held, with a new club shop open from tomorrow in the Coral Stand.

Mr Whitcut said: “For the initial gigs we have planned there will be a capacity of 25,000 and as we go into 2014, we’re looking at increasing that capacity.”

Mr Whitcut said improvements to the stadium’s access would need to be made. Mr Khan said he hoped concerts and other events planned at Odsal would bring “Bullmania” back to the ground.

Talks have also been held over potentially bringing speedway back to the stadium but those remain at an early stage. – The stadium once held a world-record rugby crowd when 102,569 fans watched a Challenge Cup final replay between Halifax and Warrington in 1954.

I've said this before, it's such a no-Brainer. As well as making money for the bulls, it'll be good for Bradford's hotels and restaurants too. Good work indeed.

Good job you remebered that. I suggest you put it in writing to Mr Khan, RFL and Bradford Council just incase they forget.

Just imagine thousands of people turning up at a stadium to watch an entertaining event. Oh wait, they do that now..... ;)

We need pro active imaginative leadership not just at the club but in the city as a whole.

this has been on the cards for years really, just needed someone to follow through with it.
all that space at low moor station could be used as a park and ride, and if a couple of other secure sites could be found for the same purpose there would be no objections from locals about parking.
when the odsal sports village was also on the cards i suggested a road by built off staithgate late just above the euroway junction for those travelling the motorway straight to the ground, how about one straight to a huge coach/car park?

OMG.... hope no-one suggests gareth gates.
that figure of 102,569 mentioned off the cup game is way off the mark too. thats only the ones recorded as paid, hundreds were round the back climbing the old sleeper fencing and obviously not counted. the true figure would make interesting reading and make the best the city park could offer look like a damp squib (mind you bulls figures do that on a wet windy day anyway)

Hopefully by next year the M62 will be sorted!!

I can see a battle of the bands taking place here - Black Lace, Smokey, Terrorvision - support acts of Tamsin Archer, Gareth Gates!! etc etc

On a more serious note it would be great. Bradford has always been the 'poor relation' to other Cities in Yorkshire, when was the last time that any band of serious note played live in the City, never mind outdoors, in fact has it ever happened?

Better make it a summer gig because Odsal in winter has to be one of the coldest places on earth - i remember when City played there. Portsmouth at home on a December evening is not for the faint hearted!

I would have thought that planning permission would be required. Twickenham is only allowed to stage a couple of concerts a year because it's in a residential area so I'd imagine the same would apply.

If they can get past that possible hurdle there's no reason why it would be a success. Huddersfield, Hull & Sunderland all manage to get major acts so there's no reason why Bradford shouldn't.

Haha, I live in an area with a nice high BD postcode. Regarding Keighley it might not the best place in the world but it's way better than the ghetto of Bradford considering the amount of money pumped into Bradford compared with the pittance pumped into Keighley.

Old Dave says...

I've been to concerts in fields of mud that were licensed to hold 100000. why would Odsal's terraces that are safe to hold rugby fans be unsafe to hold concert fans?

25,000 concert goers use the same amount of parking as 25,000 rugby fans so how would it be any different on that point?

The only thing is the noise, but the bowl tends to have that covered, and the lateness. Most gigs now have a 10.30-11pm curfew and the crowd is gone by about 12 midnight.

If they get the right acts, this could be great, but the sound of a 3 day "festival" style means there will be the usual 80s/90s retro acts. Although that could be good in some ways!

Yes, great idea except for one consideration, the possible damage done to the pitch That's why I suggested some time ago that the Bulls should invest, finances permitting in an all weather pitch like they have at Widnes. Apart from the first match there when there were problems with ice on the ground, there seem to have been no further problems and visiting teams have not, so far as I know, complained about the pitch. An all weather synthetic pitch would solve any potential problems of pitch damage from concerts.

I went to see Kings of Leon last year at the Stadium of Light and also the Rolling Stones at Don Valley in 2006, they cover the pitch with plastic boards that are raised from the pitch, thus protecting it, This is the normal practice for a staduim concert.

Why are you always on here posting negative rubbish? Doesn't matter what it is, it's wrong, won't work and foolish. When people aren't doing something, you whine and whinge that they're doing nothing, and when they are, you're whinging and whining that they're doing the wrong thing and it will never work. Your prolificacy makes us all sound like whinging, whining pessimists. It's boring. It's never witty or amusing or satirical or insightful. It's just boring.
Zing! He's got you nailed TVOR. ;-)

Great news - bring it on. Such initiatives to bring much needed recreation and finance to the city is welcome. I would certainly support it.

No proper bands/acts will want to play at that dump of a venue that is associated with a finance company that employs such dubious practice's.
You may get the manufactured shizzle like 1d and other x factor garbage.
I can't see serious bands giving it a second glance.
This all sounds like OK promising more than he can deliver. Again

Haha, I live in an area with a nice high BD postcode. Regarding Keighley it might not the best place in the world but it's way better than the ghetto of Bradford considering the amount of money pumped into Bradford compared with the pittance pumped into Keighley.
I live in Keighley and i can guarantee you that Bradford is far from a ghetto. Like all large cities Bradford has good and bad areas..take Leeds as another example...another city with similar problems and a far worse crime rate.

Don't people understand that this is an idea to generate more money to a club that, even after new owners have no money. They are wanting to invest what they have into the club but using the ground on more than just match days is very important to the future of the club. It is not set in stone that it will happen but the stadium location and position would make it ideal (as long as the noise stops at a suitable time) and from a strictly sound quality point of view Odsal will have unique acoustics compare to traditional modern stadiums. As for provident putting people off coming when it comes down to it money is money and we need it from any source possible. Do you think Hull City fans are put off by being sponsored by Cash Convectors? rather than moaning lets get behind the team and support the boys.
