Bob Knight headlines his own show in Indianapolis

Dana Hunsinger Benbow, dana.benbow@indystar.com


First, he made a private appearance at a Carmel retirement home. Then he paired up with Gene Keady at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. And last month, he made political waves appearing with Donald Trump in Indiana.

Finally, legendary Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight is going solo — for a public show —

The fiery coach, who led the Hoosiers to three national titles during an IU career that spanned from 1971-2000, will headline a show June 16 at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday and cost $35, $45, $55 or $200.
The show will start with a meet-and-greet with the coach for 40 guests (the $200 tickets), who also will get signed photos. The public show will include a "motivational speech" by Knight on his coaching days and philosophy, followed by a question-and-answer session.


INDIANAPOLIS STAR
Oh, the many layers of Bob Knight

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Victory Sports Education Program, which promotes the benefits of exercise, proper diet, physical fitness and wellness to encourage local Indianapolis area youth to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Tickets will be available at the Old National Centre box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, OldNationalCentre.com, Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Greetings!

On behalf of the City of Indianapolis, it is my pleasure welcome the Indianapolis Diesels, a minor league basketball team of the Premier Basketball League.

In addition to providing a great spectator sport and adding to the City’s rich sporting culture, the Indianapolis Diesels are committed to being a good community partner. I applaud their charitable foundation, Victory Sports Education Program (VSEP), which promotes the benefits of exercise, proper diet, physical fitness, and wellness to encourage local youth to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The VESP has adopted the 5-2-1-0 Everyday program which stresses better eating habits and more exercise as well as the No Bull project to address bullying with its consequences. I encourage schools to consider using these resources to enhance their own curricula. The well-being and success of our community depends on caring and engaged citizens and organizations.

I commend the Indianapolis Diesels for their dedication and service to their new home.

Best regards,

Gregory A. Ballard Mayor
