Crown to Perform Third From Last Tonight at DCI Prelims in Indianapolis
Championship weekend is here and Crown will take the field inside Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN, tonight (Thursday) at 10:19 pm. Crown will perform third to last on the first of three nights of competition. The Blue Devils and Bluecoats will follow Crown tonight in this Preliminary performance.
Fans who cannot make it to Indianapolis for Championship weekend can see the top fifteen World Class corps perform live in theaters across the country Thursday night beginning at 6:30 pm ET. To find a theater near you and purchase tickets to Big, Loud & Live 13 go to fathomevents.com.

Performance orders and times for Friday night's semi-finals and Saturday's finals performances will be announced after the shows each night so look for times on the Crown Facebook page.
Crown has been in a heated battle on the field with the Blue Devils and Bluecoats throughout the summer. Each corps has added new elements to their shows as the summer has progressed. Both the Blue Devils and Bluecoats debuted new endings to their shows two weeks ago in Atlanta, GA, at the DCI Southeastern Regional. Crown waited one more week and revealed a new ending to the show Relentless last Saturday in Allentown, PA, at the DCI Eastern Classic.
The new ending has brought crowds to their feet in thunderous standing ovations not only at Allentown but at shows in Chester, PA, Buffalo, NY, and at their most recent performance in Massillon, OH. There they finished only .15 points behind the Bluecoats of Canton, OH, who have been leading the world class field for most of the summer with their show, Downside Up.
