The Country music star Randy Owen and the rest of the Alabama band members bid farewell to the music industry eight years ago when they played their last tour. This Friday at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, they will play their first full concert since their farewell tour, and proceeds for the concert will go to tornado relief.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. with special guest Jon Pardi opening the show. The Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra will perform with Alabama in four pieces.
“Alabama chose to come back and play for Tuscaloosa because of the extent of the pain and disaster the community experienced after the tornado hit last spring,” said Alabama’s publicist Fletcher Foster. “The history of Alabama goes back thirty years. No other band in their format is as relevant as they are today. This is not only because of their number one records, but because of their professionalism and humanitarian work for places like St. Jude Hospital and now for the people of Tuscaloosa.”
