    Re: Sequence of verbs

    day, date, time. This is when advertising an upcoming event, or giving somebody precise details about, say as in your example, an arrival time.

    However, in conversation, and the concert was this week, then you might say, "It's 8 o'clock this Thursday." (It would be understood this is NOT 8 a.m.)
