Eugene an up and Coming Country Hotspot

4 Nov

All country fans should be delighted not only did Matthew Knight Arena bring them Miranda Lambert but coming in February Brad Paisley and the Band Perry will make their debut in Eugene. This concert will be the second country music concert in the past 6 months and not the last either. Before the opening of Matthew Knight Arena last year, Eugene didn’t have much of a country music scene but now can offer country fans a chance to see big name singers in town.

Brad Paisley’s 2012 concert tour Camobunga is presented by Chevy and includes performances by the Band Perry and American idol winner Scott McCreery. The concert will be on Friday, February 10th 2012 at Matthew Knight Arena at 7p.m.Ticket prices are reasonable ranging from $25 to $60, especially since there isn’t a bad seat at the arena. Tickets to this world tour performance will go on sale November 4th at 10 a.m, so all you country music lovers better be ready!

Paisley defined his tour as, “Camobunga :n; : //kam,bunga/ – The name of a live musical tour experience. A mind blowing blend of country, fiery 60′s surf guitar acrobatics, futuristic special effects, retro heart and soul, and mind altering liquid beverages. The spirit of the deep woods meets the breakneck excitement of the California coast.”

Paisley’s current album “This is Country Music” hit #1 on the Billboard’s Top Country Albums as well as making his sixth consecutive nation’s country best-seller. Not to brag but Paisley is a grammy winner and nine time male vocalist of the year recipient. The successful country star will be sure to give Eugene an unforgettable performance and make it an unforgettable evening.

I’ve been very impressed with how many performances and concerts Matthew Knight Arena has been able to bring to Eugene, for the first time I can say Eugene might have a decent music scene in the making. Bringing big name stars to Eugene allows for both students and the Eugene community can come together to enjoy music that otherwise would of been in Portland or other areas around the state. It makes me so happy to be able to look at a concert schedule and see Eugene, OR listed amongst larger music hot spots like Tacoma, WA and Las Vegas. The arena has allowed for so many new opportunities and will continue to provide the community with such experiences.
