It’s okay if this news makes you rush to your closet to iron your flannel, adjust the brim of your cowboy hat and dust off your cowboys boots in expectation.
WYRK 106.5 FM announced the Darien Lake shows included in this summer’s Batavia Downs Casino 2013 Country Mega-ticket package on Friday evening, and the lineup is simply star-studded. Here’s the rundown according to WYRK.com:
Sun, May 26: Pennzoil presents Tim McGraw with Brantley Gilbert and Love & Theft.
Fri., July 12: Brad Paisley with Chris Young and Lee Brice
Sun., July 21: Ford F-Series presents Toby Keith with Kip Moore
Sat., Aug. 17: Jason Aldean with Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett
Sat., Sept. 7: Farmers presents Rascal Flatts with The Band Perry
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 9, but the pricing details have already been released. The Gold Ticket, which includes a seat in the 200-300 level, runs for $450, while the Silver Ticket (400-500 level of seats) runs for $350. If you’re satisfied with lawn tickets for the quintet of shows, the cost is a reasonable $150 ($30 per show before fees.)
Which of these country acts are you most pumped about? Can you sing along to Kip Moore’s “Beer Money”? Jealous about how gracefully McGraw (and Faith Hill) age? Worried about what’s happening with Miss Mayberry these days? Enticed by the notion of jiggling Jason Aldean’s earrings on a dirt road?
All fair questions, local country fans. Expect further coverage from Buffalo.com’s country queen Kat Przybyla in the coming months.
