Country star Gary Allan will perform this summer at the Corn Crib as the first of many concerts hosted by the Normal CornBelters.
The performance will be part of the 2014 DuPont/Pioneer Summer Concert Series. The series is hosted by the Illinois Corn Farmers and this will be the second announcement they have made thus far about artists performing this summer.
The first announcement was of Tim McGraw. He will perform as part of his Sundown Heaven Town tour on Sept. 12.
Allan will play at the Corn Crib on June 20. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. The show will begin at approximately 7 p.m.
Allan’s latest album was his ninth studio album titled “Set You Free.” It was released Jan. 22, 2013. The album’s three singles include “Pieces,” “It Ain’t the Whiskey” and “Every Storm (Runs out of Rain).”
Country star Jamey Johnson and central Illinois native musicians Zach Linley & The Rebel Daredevils will complete the lineup for the evening. These two bands will perform a set before Allan takes the stage.
Tickets to the general public went on sale April 4 at 10 a.m. Tickets are priced at $44 for reserved seats and general admission field tickets. VIP pit tickets are $59. Parking is available at the Corn Crib and is $10 per car.
A person looking to purchase tickets can stop by the Mid-Illini Credit Union Box Office or call (309) 454-BALL during normal business hours.
“We hope it can show that it is a great atmosphere to hold an event, to hold a concert,” Mike Rains, community, public and media relations manager, said.
“The acoustics here are great, so it’s definitely going to be an exciting event for everyone in attendance.”
