Transforming Kinnick Stadiuminto a concert venue for Saturday’s Back Porch Revival country music show — featuring the likes of Tucker Beathard, Big & Rich, Thomas Rhett and headliner Blake Shelton — is taking a Herculean effort that includes forklifts, unique sound checks, goal post removal and a 246,000-pound crane.

It’s all part of an effort to pack 58,000 fans into the stadium for the venue’s first-ever concert.
