Big Concerts Returning to The Ralph

It’s been more than 13 years since a concert has been held at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but they’re bringing back the tradition in a big way.

One Direction will headline a show on September 3.

The last concert at The Ralph was Dave Matthews on June 20, 2001. *N Sync also appeared that year. More than 30 concerts have been held at The Ralph – previously Rich Stadium – since 1974, including Elton John, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones and The Who.

“We couldn’t be happier that the first show at Ralph Wilson Stadium in over a decade is superstar group, One Direction,” Live Nation President of Connecticut & Upstate NY Jim Koplik said in a news release. “We expect the show to be a huge success and open the door for future concerts at the Ralph.”

Tickets will go on sale November 1, but Bills premium seat holders will have pre-sale opportunities.
