FOLEY, AL (June 23, 2020) – Legends in Concert and the OWA Theater are ready to officially kick-off summer with a sizzling hot lineup of some of the biggest names in music history. Having been forced to close for the first time in its 36 year history due to a pandemic, the show is permitted to welcome back guests and prepared to provide a safe and healthy environment to experience a night of world-class entertainment. The longest-running and most-awarded show in Las Vegas history, Legends in Concert, brings the King of Rock and Roll, the King of Pop, the Princess of Pop and the Most-Heard Artist of the Decade, together on one stage, opening July 1. This show will feature not only the world’s greatest tribute artists, but also high energy dancers, back-up vocalists, a live band, magnificent costumes, elaborate theatrical sets, a full array of incredible special effects, and much more.
Fans will be “Lucky” to experience Katie Murdock’s impeccable portrayal of the Princess of Pop, Britney Spears, while being mesmerized by the stunning dance moves and vocals of “Man in the Mirror,” J. Lucas, as he pays homage to the one and only Michael Jackson. Elvis Presley also returns with hunk of “Burnin’ Love” Leo Days, back by popular demand, in his beloved portrayal of The King, Elvis Presley. Plus, the Park at OWA will not feature the only “Roller Coaster” on the property this summer, when Chad Collins delivers a hit-filled set from the Most-Heard Artist of the Decade, Luke Bryan.
“We are thrilled to re-open for our second summer at OWA with a fantastic version of our show designed for all musical tastes,” said Brian Brigner, Chief Operating Officer of Legends in Concert.

I assure you safety protocols are in place and will be performed frequently including social distancing practices. We look forward to responsibly welcoming guests back into our theater.”
