COUNTRY SUPERSTAR ALAN JACKSON IS COMING TO WICHITA’S INTRUST BANK ARENA
SATURDAY, AUGUST 10!
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson will bring a night of hits to Kansas with a concert at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita on Saturday, August 10, 2019! Tickets go on sale TBD.
Jackson is again teaming up with CID Entertainment to offer VIP Experiences at many of his 2019 shows; fans can choose from four experiences with a variety of perks including a backstage tour, the opportunity to watch the show from a custom barstool by the soundboard, access to a pre-show party, a signed poster, and more!
Alan Jackson’s concerts find the country icon performing hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans, songs that continue to draw new crowds as a younger generation discovers his music. Jackson’s repertoire stands the test of time; it has impacted a field of artists who cite Jackson as an influence. It’s these same songs – many written by Alan – that earned him his place alongside country music’s greatest names and cemented his place in its history with membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous, including his debut hit “Here in The Real World”…signature songs such as “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many, many more.
Newcomer William Michael Morgan will be Jackson’s special guest. The chart-topping hit, “I Met a Girl,” put the Mississippi native on the map, and his talent, music and voice are keeping him there. A timeless sound and honest lyrics landed him a major label record deal at 19, gave him that #1 gold smash, and earned him a Top 5 debut album. A few years older – and hundreds of shows wiser – William Michael’s music embodies the man he’s become: a hard worker and big dreamer, single dad and hopeless romantic, pure country stalwart unafraid to embrace the here and now.
Jackson’s Wichita concert will continue his tradition of “keepin’ it country” for people far and wide as he brings nearly 30 years of hits to Kansas!
