Promotional schedule includes concerts

PITTSBURGH -- The Pirates have released their 2012 promotional schedule, which is highlighted by two SkyBlast dates, two "FAN JAM" postgame concerts and a Joel Hanrahan bobblehead giveaway.

The two SkyBlast dates are scheduled for Aug. 11 and Sept. 29. The band Lifehouse will perform on the latter date, following a home game against the Reds. The Pirates have not yet announced who will take the stage after the August game.

Daughtry (July 7) and another soon-to-be-announced artist (June 9) will be on stage for the pair of "FAN JAM" postgame concerts. Five Zambelli fireworks nights have also been scheduled.

The Hanrahan bobblehead giveaway will be on May 12 and is the only bobblehead on next year's promotional schedule. The "Free-Shirt Fridays" promotion will be returning, and special giveaways have been designated for Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend.
