Legends in Concert OWA celebrates dual Ribbon Cutting

Posted

FOLEY - On Thurs. Sept. 5, Legends in Concert OWA celebrated a dual Ribbon Cutting between the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce and the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, with loads of chamber employees and members, Legends officials, and OWA officials in attendance for the fun event. The dual ribbon cutting for Legends will not be the last joint event between the two chambers, said CABC Director Greg Alexander, and comes just weeks after the two chambers announced a partnership that will expand the Gateway Initiative south.

Along with the ribbon cutting, the CABC proclaimed Sept. 5 as Legends in Concert OWA Day.

Legends in Concert OWA began wowing crowds earlier this year when doors to the theater opened in June, and recently announced the start of the Fall lineup which includes Denita Asbury’s tribute to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Trent Carlini taking over as The King, Elvis Presley, Doug Brewin and Larry Turner as country music duo Brooks and Dunn, with Turner reigniting the stage a second time with the greatest hits from George Strait, and Tina Dawn as country/pop star Taylor Swift. Also returning to the stage by popular demand, Corrie Sachs will remain with the cast as Reba.

“One of the secrets to our success over the years has been changing the lineup four times a year so when guests come back again and again they’ll see a different show,” said Chief Operating Officer at On Stage Enterprises, LLC Brian Brigner. “We are currently the longest running show in Las Vegas with 36 years on the strip, and we’ve got over 25 years in other locations across the nation. We’re hoping to be here 25-plus years as well, that’s the goal … We’re grateful to have been welcomed as part of this community; everybody has been so amazing these last few months and we’re really looking forward to the future.”

Along with the lineup change, a holiday version of the show will begin running near Thanksgiving and going through the end of the year. The lineup for the holiday special will be announced soon.

With Legends’ success, OWA General Manager Steve Honeycutt discussed more coming to OWA soon.

“We absolutely love our partnership with Legends and that they wanted to bring this show here to OWA, we appreciate that,” he said. “One of the biggest questions about OWA is when is Paula Deen’s going to open. It will be sometime around mid-November, and Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar will be opening around mid-November too. This month we’re going to open our own candy store, Sweet Tooth at OWA, and we will be opening a Fall Festival at the end of September that will take place in the field by McDonald’s.”
