The Dicks Sporting Goods Open draws a big name for this year's Party on the Green.

Three-time Grammy award winner Rob Thomas will perform Friday Night at the tournament.

Thomas was the lead singer of Matchbox Twenty, but has recently branched out into a solo career.

Including a string of smash hits, like his latest, Someday.

"He does a lot of things in various communities as far as charity events and when he took a look at this opportunity here and we took a look at him, it was just a perfect match. So we are really excited to have Rob Thomas performing at our Friday night concert," said Dave Pessagno of the Dicks Sporting Goods Open.

Tickets go on sale February 27th at 10 am at the Broome County Arena Box office, Ticket Master and Dicks Sporting Goods Stores.

The concert is Friday, June 25h at En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott.

A $30 tickets gets you a full day of golf, and admission to Rob Thomas.
