TUPELO – Ballard Park will host country artist Gary Allan during the inaugural Sundown in Tupelo Festival.
The event is slated for July 10, and organizers plan to feature six concerts with Allan taking the stage at 10 p.m.
“Gary is a great performer,” said Charles Scott, the festival’s co-founder. “Anyone who’s seen his live show knows that. It’s why we got him.”
Tickets will be $49, though there will be 500 tickets for $39 available to those who subscribe at the festival website, www.sundownintupelo.com. Ticket sales are expected to begin Monday, April 27.
Allan recently released “Hangover Tonight,” and his hits include “Man to Man,” “Tough Little Boys,” “Nothing on But the Radio” and “Watching Airplanes.” Learn more about the singer at garyallan.com.
