Merle Haggard Tribute Concert
5/19/2017 – 8PM
Ben & Noel Haggard
Menard Sports Center
1001 S Clapp St. Wasilla
Tickets: $49 General, $99 VIP
Ben and Noel Haggard will be doing a tribute to the great legend, Merle Haggard, at the Menard Centre in Wasilla on May 19, 2017. Merle Haggard's sons will be performing a lot of his old and well-known songs, as well as a few of their own.
Merle spent a year or so in Alaska back in 1980 and this is a bit of a homecoming for the boys. It is exciting that they will be playing a tribute to him here!
Merle is well known for songs like "Mama Tried", "Okee From Muskogee" and "Fightin’ Side of Me", along with many others. He was very much for America, the American people and way of life and that was reflected in the songs he sang, which Ben and Noel will be performing.
Ben and Noel are both rising musicians in their own right and both traveled with Merle, playing in his band and helping out with the shows on the road. They are excited to be coming to Alaska to play for all Merle's fans and we are excited to have them!
The show starts at 8pm on May 19th. Tickets are available now at www.brownpapertickets.com and are $99 for VIP seating in front of the stage (these will include a meet and greet with the artists) and $49 for general seating. Get your tickets now and don't miss this great concert with Ben and Noel Haggard, sons of the great Merle Haggard!
