Darius Rucker isn’t letting the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic stop him from raising money for an organization near and dear to his heart: St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The “Wagon Wheel” singer is turning his 11th Darius & Friends benefit concert into a virtual affair. This year’s show, which features Darius, Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence, will take place on the Grand Ole Opry stage on July 30 at 7 p.m. CT. Fans will be able to view the show via a pay-per-view live stream. The annual concert has raised more than $2 million for St. Jude over the years.
“Even though we can’t all get together for a normal concert right now, it’s important that we continue to support St. Jude and the amazing work that they do,” says Darius. “I hope we can bring a fun night of music to everyone watching from home while also raising money for this important cause.”
Tickets to the pay-per-view event start at $15 with VIP options offering limited-edition and signed posters priced at $50 and $100, respectively. Tickets go on sale on July 10 at 10 a.m. CT.
