A rainy weather forecast has forced a Tuesday Lady Antebellum concert away from their namesake venue in Evans.

SPECIAL
Proceeds from Tuesday's Lady Antebellum concert will go to the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta’s $5.9 million capital campaign to build a house larger house for families of pediatric patients on the campus of the Children’s Medical Center of Georgia.

The country trio, slated to perform at Lady Antebellum Pavilion in the Evans Towne Center Park, will instead take the stage at James Brown Arena to avoid predicted rains and possible severe weather, according to information released by Kicks 99, the concert sponsor.

All tickets that have already been purchased will be honored at the arena in downtown Augusta, according to the information posted on the Kicks 99 Web site. The concert time is the same – doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are still available for the show and can be purchased by visiting www.kicks99.com, www.augusta

or by calling the arena at (706) 262-4567.

The concert is a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta.

The group really wanted to do something to give back to the hometown of members Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley, both Lakeside High School graduates, said Kent Dunn, an event organizer and vice president and marketing manager for Beazley Broadcasting.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta’s $5.9 million capital campaign to build a house larger house for families of pediatric patients on the campus of the Children’s Medical Center of Georgia.

So they are a home-town

So they are a home-town group, they are an A-list act, but they only expect a few thousand people to attend?

Hoo, boy.

James Brown Arena seating

James Brown Arena seating capacity is about 8,500 and the Bell is around 2690.

Where does it state they only expect a few thousand to attend? Seem like moving it to the JBA there would be more seating available than the Pavilion.
