Shawn Meyer 'Veterans Tour' in two area shows

The American Legion "Veteran's Tour" featuring Shawn Mayer and special guest Dave Fintel, comes to the Clay County Regional Events Center in Spencer on Friday, March 27th. All proceeds from the concert will go the the 9th District American Legion, which serves Buena Vista County and the surrounding region.

Tickets are $16.50 and are on sale now at the Clay County Regional Events Center Box Office, on line at http://www.ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at Ticket Master at 1-800-745-3000 or at all Ticket Master outlets.

A second concert will be in Cherokee, at the Gathering Place, on April 17 at 8 p.m. Cost for the Cherokee performance will be $25, and seating is limited. You can buy tickets now at the Bookvine or The Copper Cup in Cherokee.

Both concerts will feature "Nashville Star" finalist singing sensation Shawn Mayer, formerly of May City, with opening act Dave Fintel of Paullina, who is affectionately know as "the singing farmer."

Monies raised from this benefit will help assist veterans and their spouses when an unexpected financial crisis arises, and will also support various programs at the VA hospitals in Sioux Falls, Omaha, and the Veterans' Home at Marshalltown. Funds may also be used for youth programs and veteran's activities, or to help deceased veteran's families.
