Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett aren’t the only ones who can have fun in the sun all year ’round.
On Oct. 15, Brad Paisley and Jon Bon Jovi are slated to kick off their shows promoting tourism on the Alabama Gulf Coast with their own installement of Concerts for the Coast. Paisley will perform Oct. 15, and Jovi will take the stage Oct. 17.The shows are free and open to the public.
The Concerts from the Coast series kicked-off with Jimmy Buffett & Friends: Live from The Gulf Coast on July 11th. The event hosted 35,000 fans on Gulf Shores’ public beach. The series continues with a performance by Hank Williams Jr. and Gretchen Wilson on September 25th at The Wharf in Orange Beach. This concert series was created to offer much-needed economic support to the troubled gulf area, drawing visitors from around the country and stimulating the local economy damaged by the oil spill.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of these two concerts that will enhance an exciting weekend that already features the return of our powerboat races,” said Herb Malone, president/CEO of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism. “We are extremely pleased that fans will have a weekend filled with exciting race action and capped off with two nights of phenomenal beachside music.”
