Blue Highway has raised the bar in bluegrass originality ever since they first burst onto the scene in the 1990’s. Well, after their upcoming fan appreciation event, they may also be known for raising the bar in delivering the band’s fans with the ultimate experience.
The award-winning, Blue Highway will be hosting their first ever “Fan Appreciation Concert” on Saturday, April 30th, at Emory & Henry’s McGlothlin Center for the Arts in Emory, VA. The luxurious, $20 million venue welcomes Blue Highway as its first outside concert.
This will truly be the ultimate Blue Highway experience. When fans purchase their tickets, they will also be voting for which songs will appear on the band’s setlist. Any song from the band’s ten albums are fair game! In addition to truly being an all request show, a handful of lucky fans will receive the honor of getting to introduce their favorite Blue Highway songs on stage.
The event will completely immerse fans in the world of Blue Highway. Fans will choose whether they would like to sit in sections such as “Marbletown” (Front Row), “V-Bottom Boat” (Orchestra), “Sycamore Hollow” (Mezzanine), “Keen Mountain” (Balcony), or “In The Gravel Yard” (Floor Box Seats), all Blue Highway songs. All fans will also be eligible to win many special door prizes throughout the concert, including some one-of-a-kind Blue Highway items.
There are special lunch and dinner tickets available as well, featuring a gourmet all-you-can-eat buffet. Tickets will be available tomorrow, March 11, at 10:00 a.m. on the band web site.
Fans can also participate in workshop events with the band the day preceding the event, on Friday, April 29th.
The Blue Highway Fan Appreciation Concert includes a matinee and an evening performance. Each performance will include two one-hour sets with an intermission. For tickets and more information, be sure to visit bluehighway.com.
This special event will be a first of its kind in the band’s twenty-two year tenure, and I, for one, am very excited about this ultimate Blue Highway experience!
