Date Set For 14th Annual ‘Darius And Friends’ Benefit Concert
Darius Rucker will return to the Ryman Auditorium for his 14th annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert on Monday, June 5. The show will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and will serve as the unofficial kick off to CMA Fest.
Rucker’s “Darius and Friends” concert, which has raised more than $3 million to date, is part of the star’s commitment he made to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 15 years ago after taking an inspiring tour of the hospital.
Now, a decade and a half later, that effort has become an annual tradition. Friends performing with Rucker in past years have included Lauren Alaina, Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Charles Kelley of Lady A, Ashley McBryde, A.J. McLean of the Backstreet Boys, Brad Paisley, Kenny Rogers and Tommy Thayer of KISS, among many others. The lineup for the event will be announced in the coming months.
Tickets to the 14th Annual Darius & Friends benefit concert start at $69 with VIP package options up to $249, available via AXS.com. Pre-sale access begins tomorrow, April 18 at 10 a.m. CT, with tickets on sale to the general public this Friday, April 21 at 10 a.m. CT.
