Gord Bamford performing in Lacombe

Tickets for the Drive-in and Fly-in Concert went on sale Sept. 16

  • Sep. 16, 2020 1:00 p.m.

Central Alberta’s Gord Bamford will perform at the Lacombe Regional Airport.

There are 175 tickets available for the Sept. 26 event, and they are being sold by the car or planeload starting at $75 per vehicle. Proceeds will go towards the Gord Bamford Foundation.

On its website, the foundation says it “provides funds for initiatives that include or involve music, education, health care, sports and multi-use facilities that benefit youth across Canada.”

The City of Lacombe says the foundation has funded approximately $400,000 worth of community initiatives within the region.

“If you have a truck, bring your lawn chairs, sit in the back of your trucks and enjoy some great country music,” Bamford said recently on Twitter.

Aircraft will be able to fly in for the concert, but organizers are asking that no fly-bys take place during Bamford’s set.
