Mule Days announced Friday that tickets for the Dave Stamey and Baxter Black Concert, scheduled for Thursday, May 22, have sold out. It’s been at least 10 years since a Mule Days concert has sold out prior to the event.
Mule Days Public Relations Manager Barb Laughon attributes the advanced interest to the event returning to its roots: moving the concert back to the Charles Brown Auditorium and offering good old fashioned Western music. “The fact that these two entertainers have lived the life that so many Mule Days contestants and guests have really speaks to the success of the ticket sales,” Laughon said, adding that both Stamey and Black have quite a local fan base. “These two men in particular really helped sell it.”
Executive Director Tammy Mandrell said that KIBS still has 20 tickets to the concert that will be given away over the next couple weeks. Mule Days Operations Manager DJ Loyd and President Dan Dean said there is still plenty of time for residents and visitors to get tickets to other shows, including the Opening Night Supper, which will feature Mamma’s Wranglers, a “high-energy, fun family” act that features music, dancing and more.
Tickets are available online at http://www.muledays.org  and at the Mule Days office located at 1141 N. Main St. in Bishop.
