LANDAU EUGENE MURPHY JR. ONCE AGAIN HELPS THOSE IN NEED IN THE WEST VIRGINIA COALFIELDS
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the landslide winner of NBC’s hit television show America’s Got Talent, will again heed the call to perform a benefit concert for his fellow West Virginians. This time, the benefactor is the Boone County Community Foundation. The benefit concert will be held Friday March 9th at the Madison Civic Center in Madison, West Virginia, near Landau’s home in Logan, WV.
Previous concerts by Murphy in West Virginia have all been quick sellouts, and show organizers in Boone County expect the same for Murphy’s concert there, encouraging fans to secure their tickets quickly.
Landau tickets go on sale Saturday, Feb. 25th at 10am at Madison Volunteer Fire Department, 1 Firehouse Square State Street in downtown Madison and The Grapevine on State Street in downtown Madison. You can order tickets via phone by calling (304) 369-4683. Tickets are $35.00-$40.00 in advance, $45.00 at the door day of show. Other ticket outlets will be added soon.
Murphy and his 16 piece Sweet Lippz Big Band has been performing to sell out audiences and standing ovations since Landau won the America’s Got Talent crown. The tour is in support of Landau’s Columbia Records debut CD release “That’s Life. The album, produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell, features Landau’s unique and timeless take on classics from the Great American Songbook. It debuted at #1 on both the Billboard and Amazon Jazz charts.
The former car washer and father of five from Logan West Virginia captured America’s heart with his music, his humble, gracious nature and his message to dream big and never give up. Over 14 million people each week watched and voted as Landau climbed to the top on America’s Got Talent on national television. Since his million dollar win, Murphy has headlined at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, been nominated for “Outstanding New Artist” at the NAACP’s Image Awards, received The West Virginian of the Year award and has honored his country by performing the National Anthem for ESPN at Madison Square Garden and prior to nationally televised WVU football and Marshall University basketball games.
Known for his assistance to numerous charitable causes along his tour route, ranging from homeless shelters to children’s hospitals, Landau has designated a portion of this March 9th concert to benefit the Boone County Community Foundation.
