Scotty McCreery To Play Special Benefit Concert in Wallingford, CT

Following the early success of Scotty McCreery’s See You Tonight Tour, the Platinum-selling country star has extended his first-ever headlining tour into the fall and will bring it to Toyota Oakdale in Wallingford, CT, on Thursday, December 4, for a special 1214 Foundation Benefit Concert.  McCreery serves as a National Goodwill Ambassador for the Newtown, CT-based foundation.  In conjunction with this show and Live Nation Concerts, McCreery will also host a VIP pre-show party to benefit the foundation as well.

The pre-show party will allow those who purchase VIP ticket packages an opportunity to hear Scotty perform in an intimate acoustic setting, have a meet & greet with the artist and enjoy appetizers and beverages prior to the show.

“When I realized we were coming to Connecticut, I knew I wanted to do something special to support the 1214 Foundation, and this was the perfect opportunity,” said McCreery.  “I am looking forward to the event and hope we raise some awareness for this remarkable organization and have a great time in the process.”  Since the 2012 shooting tragedy which devastated the town and shocked the nation, McCreery has made multiple visits to Newtown to meet with families there.

There will be two ticket options available for purchase beginning this Friday, Sept. 26, at 10:00 AM ET at oakdale.com and livenation.co. Tickets for just the concert itself are $55*, $45* and $35*.

A limited number of  the VIP Pre Show Party Package tickets - that also includes the concert -  will be available for $150*.

The See You Tonight Tour originally kicked off in January, making stops in more than 50 U.S. markets.  With his high-energy live show and allure of a seasoned showman, McCreery captivated audiences across the country, selling out more than 20 dates along the way, including at famed venues such as Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, TX, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, and House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC.

McCreery is currently touring in support of his No. 1-debuting sophomore album, See You Tonight, which features both his Top 10, Gold-certified hit “See You Tonight” and his currently climbing single, “Feelin’ It.” Concert-goers can also expect to hear fan-favorite songs such as “Trouble with Girls,” “Water Tower Town” and “I Love You This Big” from his record-breaking, Platinum debut album, Clear As Day, on Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records.
