Country music star Ne LeDoux plans a concert Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Lander Community Center, 950 Buena Vista Drive, with proceeds directed to the "Build the Bleachers" fund for the Lander rodeo grounds.
Concert tickets are $30 in advance, available online at: landerwyoming.org (link to the Ned LeDoux concert under "Did You Know")
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction and two warm-up bands. The live auction starts at 8 p.m., with LeDoux playing from 8:30-10:00.
LeDoux's new album, "Sagebrush," recently was featured at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. He has opened for Garth Brooks in Nashville.
Born in Kaycee, LeDoux also has family roots in Lander. He is the son of the late country star Chris LeDoux.
The fundraising campaign is organized by the Lander Old Timers Rodeo Association, whose hosts hosts the annual July 3-4 Pioneer Days Rodeo, billed as the oldest paid rodeo in the state.l
Plans call for the arena and bleachers will be reconfigured to improve spectators viewing and audience safety.
The arean also is the host site for Lander's annual Fourth of July fireworks, as well as several other events each year.
Planners say the improved seating configuration will make the arena suitable for even more events.
The organizing committee seeks donated auction. To contribute, contact Sara Felix, Lander Parks and Recreation, 307-332-4647.
