Tickets for the general public may have only gone on sale Monday morning, but by noon that day the fifth annual Dustin Lynch & Friends Benefit Concert was already completely sold out, according to officials with First Vision Bank.

The concert has been held for the last four years in the Tullahoma High School auditorium – Lynch’s hometown stage.

This year’s concert will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 11, according to Lynch’s publicity team.

“It’s always exciting to have a student who has lived out their dream to be able to come back home,” said THS Principal Kathy Rose. “THS is Dustin’s home and we are very excited to have him back with us.”

There are two basketball games scheduled for the same night; however, that should not present too much of a conflict, as the basketball games take place on the opposite side of the building from the concert.

Mayor Lane Curlee confirmed to The News via email Tuesday evening that the general admission tickets had sold out within 15 minutes Monday morning.

The reason, he said, was an increase in the number of pre-sale tickets that were sold at the high school.  

“Every year Dustin requests that THS students and teachers be given the first chance to buy tickets at a [two-day] pre-sale, which took place last week,” he said. “A higher-than-usual number of tickets were sold then.”

That doesn’t mean there are no more opportunities to see the concert, however; one option still exists for those willing to shell out a few extra bucks.

According to Curlee, there are still six concert sponsorships available for those interested.

The sponsorships constitute a $250 VIP package, which includes two tickets to the show as well as two passes to an exclusive pre-show, backstage reception.

Those who purchase the sponsorship package will have a short meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Lynch, Curlee said.

Anyone looking to take advantage of the sponsorship package are encouraged to contact Curlee via email at lcurlee@lighttube.net.
