GAVIN DEGRAW & MATT NATHANSON
Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated recording artist Gavin DeGraw and acclaimed singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson highlight a day of music and fireworks at the Viaero Event Center on July 3rd. The concert is part of a new North American Summer tour featuring DeGraw, Nathanson and opening act Mary Lambert. Tickets for the 6:00 p.m. concert are $33 (plus fees) and go on-sale to the public on Friday, March 28th at 10 a.m. at www.kearneyevents.com or by calling the box office at 308-338-8011.
The Viaero Event Center has traditionally hosted the Kearney community fireworks show on July 3rd in conjunction with the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce. The Viaero Wireless July Jam concert will end just prior to this year's fireworks and all concert-goers will be able to exit the building in time to watch the fireworks show. The parking lot will remain open for people to watch the fireworks even if they choose not to attend the concert. It's another level of entertainment that the Viaero Event Center administration was looking to provide for this day of celebration in Kearney.
When the music starts on the Viaero Event Center stage, fans can expect to hear DeGraw perform songs from his acclaimed fourth studio album, MAKE A MOVE, including the hit single "Best I Ever Had" and his latest smash "Make A Move." The album has garnered rave reviews since its October 15th release with People Magazine describing the album's first single "Best I Ever Had" as "the kind of switch-up that brings fresh energy." His other hit singles include "I Don't Want to Be," "In Love With a Girl" and "Not Over You."
Matt Nathanson has long been a fan favorite with his vivid songwriting, infectious melodies and dynamic live shows. His latest album LAST OF THE GREAT PRETENDERS has been hailed as the 'Album of the Week' by USA Today adding "he has a way of drawing people into his stories." The album features the song "Heart Starts," the catchy theme to Lifetime's Series Celebrity Bucket List of which Nathanson was recently featured - as well as the hit single "Kinks Shirt" which continues to climb on the HAC chart and is also being heard on America's Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, The Billy Bush Show and Rick Dee's Countdown.
