It’s not too late to purchase discounted tickets for Secret City Festival
The deadline for early bird tickets to the 12th Annual Secret City Festival’s headline concerts has been extended through Thursday, June 5. This extension will allow the public to continue to purchase tickets to both the Friday night Eddie Money concert or the Saturday night Kix Brooks concert for the discounted rate of $18 each.
Friday night’s concert will feature 80s rocker Eddie Money as he brings his blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll sound to the UCOR concert stage. Opening for Eddie Money will be local band Jada Blade and Dez Money and The Faze. Dez Money is the son of Eddie Money, but he’ll bring his own unique style to the Friday night line-up. Concert goers can expect to hear hits from Eddie Money’s career including “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin,’” and “Baby Hold On.” Friday night’s concert is sponsored by Pro2Serve, CROET, and Classic Hits 93.1 WNOX.
Saturday night’s concert brings legendary country music artist Kix Brooks, formerly of Brooks and Dunn, to the UCOR stage. As part of one of the biggest duos in country music history, Brooks has received many industry accolades including two Grammy awards, 20 Country Music Association trophies, and 27 Academy of Country Music honors. After Brooks and Dunn announced their retirement, Brooks has enjoyed success on and off the stage as a solo artist, radio host, and actor. Nashville band, Phoenix Drive, will open the show. Saturday’s concert is sponsored by LDA Engineering and 96.7 Merle FM.
Both concerts begin at 7 p.m. and will go on as scheduled rain or shine. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with general festival seating. Bring your own chairs and blankets, as none will be provided. No backpacks or coolers are allowed in the concert area. All bags will be searched prior to entry with no exceptions.
Tickets are available at the extended early bird price of $18 through June 5 and can be purchased online at secretcityfestival.com, by phone at (865) 230-2956 or in person at the Oak Ridge Civic Center. Children 10 and under will be admitted for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
