To our Friends & Family in Kentucky,
While we'd love nothing more than to see you all at Kroger Field next month, it is with everyone's best interest in mind that we are rescheduling A Concert For Kentucky to Saturday, April 24, 2021.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and we've worked closely with the University of Kentucky and all artists involved to find the best date possible. We are excited to share that Willie Nelson & Family, Sheryl Crow, and Yola will all be performing on the rescheduled date.
All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date, and please contact your point of purchase for any further ticketing questions.
We can't wait to see everyone next year at A Concert For Kentucky, and in the meantime please stay healthy at home.
