LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 19, 2012) —GRAMMY-winning trio Lady Antebellum announced in early April that tornado ravaged Henryville (Ind.) High School would be the recipient of a private concert from their OWN THE NIGHT Prom Contest. The group is inviting the school’s juniors and seniors to the KFC Yum! Center on May 16 for a private prom event, followed by a post-party concert at 8:30 p.m. that will be open to the public.
All proceeds raised from the concert will go to Rebuilding Henryville, through the New Hope/Indiana Bankers Association for the benefit of the Disaster Relief Fund.
“The whole community, especially the students, is excited about Lady Antebellum coming and performing for Henryville,” said Monty Schneider, superintendent of West Clark Community Schools. “They missed so much with the school being destroyed that things like this help them feel whole again.”
Helping rebuild the community is the group’s biggest priority right now, said Lady A’s Hillary Scott.
“We were so moved by the stories from Henryville High School, but also from the students at their rival schools who raised their hands and said they wanted to help. It’s going to be an amazing day,” she said.
Tickets for the show go on sale to the public Friday, April 27 at 10 a.m. and are $35 and $25 reserved. Prices include facility fees. There is a ticket limit of eight per person on the first day of sales.
Tickets may be purchased at the KFC Yum! Center, the Kentucky Exposition Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center Ticket Offices. Tickets also may be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets, through Ticketmaster Charge by Phone at 1-800-745-3000, and online at www.ticketmaster.com.
