Tickets are on sale for a country concert featuring Lakeside High School graduate and musician Josh Kelley during Masters Week at the Evans Towne Center Park.
Country group Little Big Town is headlining the April 5 show, dubbed Par Tee @ The Park, at Lady Antebellum Pavilion.
During the show, Kelley will be present for the dedication of Lady Antebellum Pavilion’s stage, which is named for him. Kelley’s brother, Charles, and fellow Lady A band members Dave Haywood and Hilary Scott performed at the pavilion in October.
“We’re definitely excited,” said Columbia County Community Events Specialist Keela Colombraro. “We held off on doing the stage dedication to when he could actually be there.”
Country act Eric Paslay is also scheduled on the concert lineup.
While the show starts at 5 p.m., gates to the park will open at 4 p.m.
General admission is $20, and VIP tickets cost $30. Those who purchase VIP tickets are closer to the stage, Colombraro said.
There will be 4,000 general admission tickets and 500 VIP tickets available Friday, she said.
Patrons can’t bring coolers or food into the park, said Colombraro, adding that food and alcohol vendors will set up on site.
People are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs.
Not only does the concert give residents on spring break an opportunity for local fun, it also showcases Columbia County to visitors in town for the Masters Tournament, Colombraro said.
“We definitely would like to appeal to the travelers ... and let them see what Columbia County has to offer during Masters Week,” she said.
Tickets are available at www.
The park also will be the venue for a rock concert on May 3.
Bands Seether, Chevelle, Black Stone Cherry and New Medicine are performing at the pavilion.
Tickets cost $30 if purchased by Saturday, and are $35 or $40 on the day of the show, which is sponsored by 95 Rock.
A limited number of “pit-area” tickets cost $55.
