INDIANAPOLIS -

The Colts are offering fans the first ever "kickoff concert" in downtown Indianapolis set for September 6th.

The Gin Blossoms will play the show on Georgia Street, which was home to Super Bowl Village and several concerts during the 2012 festivities.

The event is free and open to the public, and runs from 6:00 to 10:00 pm on Georgia St. between Illinois St. and Capital Ave. The Colts cheerleaders and mascot Blue will attend, and there will also be giveaways.

The Gin Blossoms' hits include "Hey Jealousy", "Found Out About You", "Allison Road", "Until I Fall Away", "Til I Hear It From You", and "Follow You Down." The concert will be held on the west block of Georgia Street in conjunction with Indianapolis Downtown Inc. and Emmis Communications.

The Colts will host the Oakland Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium two days after the concert, on Sunday, September 8, for their regular season home opener. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
