7/28 Make some noise Knoxville, TN: Didi Benami and the American Idols Live at Thompson-Boling Arena! (PHOTOS)


Share

The American idols are in Knoxville, Tennessee- our very own Didi Benami’s hometown. Finally, a “home court” advantage for our favorite Idol! We are so excited!

We hoped to be where the action is but it’s too late for us. We couldn’t go- it is too far out now where we are, here in Massachusetts. We are hoping to hear from the loving people of Knoxville, sharing their story or two with us. So hang tight! We’ll place photos and videos here.

UPDATES: Didi Benami arrived in Knoxville, TN along with the Top 10 around 6am this morning when she tweeted: “HOME!! Yaaaay!”

> Star 102.1 FM were the first to call Didi at their home and they tweeted this: “@dbenami is on live with Marc & Kim and Frank RIGHT NOW.”

“Didi Benami, in town for Am. Idol tour, called…she listened to our show growing up. She was in middle school…no, we’re not old.”

> Didi is now at the Thompson-Boling Arena with the Top 10 doing press meetings from 1:30 to showtime at 7:30pm.

We just got word that the CITY OF KNOXVILLE declared today, July 28th: “DIDI BENAMI DAY” in Knoxville, TN!!!

ABOUT THE VENUE: Thompson-Boling Arena is a 24,535 seat multi-purpose arena on the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee. The arena opened in 1987. It is home to the Tennessee Volunteers (men) and Lady Vols (women) basketball teams. Since 2008, it has been home to the Lady Vol volleyball team.[1] It is named after B. Ray Thompson and former university president Dr. Edward J. Boling. The basketball court is named “The Summitt” after Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt. It replaced the Stokely Athletic Center. The mammoth octagonal building lies just northwest of the Tennessee River, and just southwest of Neyland Stadium. As an echo of its neighbor and a tribute to the brick-and-mortar pattern atop Ayres Hall, the baselines of the court are now painted in the familiar orange-and-white checkerboard pattern.
