LOGAN – The Aracoma Story Inc. presents Logan County native and America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. for a night under the stars at the Logan Homecoming Concert Friday, August 12th. Gates will open at 8:00pm and show time is 9:00pm. The show is sponsored in part by Robert Noone Legal Services, specializing in foster care and adoptions.
Tickets are available at Gatti’s in Fountain Place Mall, The Aracoma Story Office by calling (304) 752-0253 or online at www.landaumurphyjr.com. Tickets are just twenty dollars in advance and twenty-five dollars on the day of the show. A very limited number of gold circle VIP seats, including a backstage reception with Landau and the band, will be available for fifty dollars.
Landau and his band will be singing songs from: his upcoming new album, his PBS special at The Grove in Hollywood, and his upcoming performance Labor Day weekend with the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra. Landau will also perform his new hit single Come Home to West Virginia, which hit the Top 10 list on the iTunes Jazz chart following its release. Due to the support of Landau fans from all over the country, over half a million dollars in donations and pledges have been raised for Rebuild West Virginia flood relief efforts.
After a summer tour that included stops in Boston, Hartford, Seattle, Phoenix, Reno, Miami, Hollywood, Washington D.C., Annapolis, Maryland, and Reston, Virginia, Landau is especially excited to come home to Logan to celebrate his 42nd birthday this week! Joining him will be Landau’s good friend and former lead vocalist of the Motown legends the Temptations, Glenn Leonard. Leonard performed on 10 albums with the Temptations including their chart topping “Reunion” album and tour, singing lead on “I’m on Fire,” “Go for It,” “The Best of Both Worlds,” “Open Their Eyes,” “Ever Ready Love,” and the popular holiday hit “Silent Night.” Glenn was proudly inducted into the R&B Hall of Fame in 2013. When Glenn was asked to join Landau in Logan, he said, “We always have a great time and I’m looking forward to performing with him in his hometown for his birthday.”
The concert will be held at Chief Logan State Park located at 376 Little Buffalo Creek Rd in Logan, West Virginia, at the Liz Spurlock Amphitheater. Showtime is 9:00pm.
Landau is available for advance phone interviews prior to the show.
