The Soldier On Benefit concert will still go on! The Charlie Daniels Band & Marshall Tucker Band will be extending their sets and are very excited to raise money for our Albany Veterans! Skeeter Creek will be opening up the show! We just received the following from Bret Michaels team:
"Regrettably Bret Michaels will not be able to performance tonight at the Times Union Center due to continued illness and diabetes complications related to the Nora flu virus. His apologies to all the fans. His team is hoping that this will all be under control and Bret will be better in the next few days."
Refunds will be available at your original point of purchase as long as your ticket is not scanned. If you enter the concert, you will not be refunded. We hope to see you tonight as we support our Veterans!
Charlie Daniels, Bret Michaels and Marshall Tucker Band to play benefit concert on May 31st!
The concert, to be held at the Time Union Center features a triple bill of rocker Bret Michaels, The Charlie Daniels Band and Marshall Tucker. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales for the show will be donated to Soldier On, which is raising funds in order to build a housing center at the site of the former Ann Lee Home. Soldier On plans include a campus at the site, with housing, treatment services and job placement assistance.
“This is going to be a great partnership for the 18,000 veterans in the county, some of whom need these services,” said McCoy. “The fact that these great recording artists are coming to Albany in support of Soldier On affirms that this is an organization that deserves our support.”
The concert will be preceded by a daylong street festival in front of the TU Center from noon to 6 p.m. There will be live music from local favorites Skeeter Creek, EB Jeb and No2 Band. The festival will also feature a custom motorcycle show, bike builders and “The ride for Soldier On,” a motorcycle parade raising awareness to the cause. Contact for the Street Festival is Patrick Brisson firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-376-3998.
Tickets for the concert are on sale now and priced at $55, $45 and $35. A portion of all ticket sales will benefit the construction of housing for homeless veterans in the capital region. Click here to purchase tickets.
