Wingnuts Announce Third Annual Community Benefit Concert

March 5, 2018 - American Association (AA) - Wichita Wingnuts News Release

WICHITA, Kans. - The Wichita Wingnuts are excited to announce their Third Annual Community Benefit Concert, which will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. Headlining the event is country music duo Big & Rich, with a number of supporting acts to be announced at a later date.

Spearheaded by Wingnuts co-owners Nate Robertson, Steve Ruud, and Gary Austerman, the Wingnuts Community Benefit Concert was created to allow the Wingnuts to develop a long-lasting relationship with dozens of non-profit organizations in the area and to help them raise funds.

Tickets for the concert will be on sale starting Friday, March 9 through 50 local non-profit organizations. Half of all ticket sales will go toward the non-profit of your choice. Tickets can be purchased online at https://wichitawingnuts.com/concert/ or in person at the Lawrence-Dumont Stadium Box Office.

"With the tremendous success our local non-profit partners have had the past two years, we are excited to announce our Third Annual Community Benefit Concert," Wingnuts General Manager Brian Turner said. "This event was devised to bring our community together to support 50 very different, but very important causes. It truly is an event like no other. Nowhere else can you enjoy some of country music's greatest entertainers at an affordable price, knowing half of your ticket cost goes to support the non-profit of your choice."

Last year's concert, held in April of 2017, featured country music stars Chris Janson and Billy Currington. A near-capacity crowd packed Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, raising valuable funds for Wichita-area non-profits and treating fans to a memorable show in a historic venue. The first Community Benefit Concert brought The Band Perry to Wichita, establishing a tradition of crowd-pleasing performers that continues into 2018.

Big & Rich, composed of Big Kenny and John Rich, is one of the most successful and entertaining duos in country music history. The band has produced a series of Top 20 hits, including classics such as "8th of November", "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", and the duo's #1 single, "Lost in This Moment." Big & Rich's latest album, Did It For the Party was released in September of 2017 and features the single "California."
