Idols Unite! Lee DeWyze and Friends Concert Hits Pala Casino
This Friday, June 5th at 7:30 pm at Pala Casino Spa & Resort’s Infinity Showroom, headliner DeWyze will take a break from his current tour promoting the recent Vanguard Records release “Frames,” to raise money for a good cause.
DeWyze will be joined on stage by Blake (beat box) Lewis, runner up for Idol’s season 6, Elliott “the crooner who needed a makeover” Yamin, who took third on season 5, and Didi Benami, who was apparently on season 9, but I stopped watching after Kris Allen started that whole white-boys-with-guitars era in season 8.
Proceeds for “Lee DeWyze and Friends: American Idol Reunion Concert” benefit Oak Grove Center for Education Treatment & the Arts; a non-profit, 24-hour residential, educational and therapeutic treatment center, located in Murrieta, that treats 76 at-risk children who live on campus and 90-100 day students who attend its non-public schools. Oak Grove also operates a second campus, Oak Grove at the Ranch, in Perris, that serves an additional 50 students. For more information visit Oak Grove Center.
Tickets for “Lee DeWyze and Friends: Americal Idol Reunion Show” are only $15 per person but, being a casino, you must be 21 years of age or older to attend. Discounted 4-packs of tickets are also available, as well as special meet-and-greet opportunities. Click here to purchase tickets.
Although Taylor Hicks is not involved (SOUL PATROL!!!!), you still have to admit that this is a show that any American Idol fan should be clamoring to attend; assuming you are of age, of course. American Idol’s days may be numbered, but the dream is still alive, people. Keep on dreaming, Dawg, and make it your own.
