Attention country music fans: The Dirt Road Outlawz will be holding a special concert at the Millsboro Town Center on Aug. 16.
“We were thinking about something to prep a month ahead of time for the Millsboro Country Festival that’s coming up in September,” said Amy Simmons, executive director of the Greater Millsboro Chamber of Commerce. “We haven’t had a concert in here. We just thought it was something different to have.”
The bring-your-own-beer concert will be held from 7 to 11 p.m., with tickets costing $10 each. Attendees may also enjoy soft drinks and pretzel snacks at the Saturday-evening concert.
Simmons said she believes the concert will be a hit, as many community members are fans of the band.
“A lot of the people in this area like them. Sometimes some of the places they go get filled quickly, and not everyone gets to go see their show,” she said. “So if people wanted to see them, they would definitely get the chance to see them.”
But, Simmons said, the Chamber will only be selling 200 tickets to the concert.
“We’ve sold quite a few tickets so far,” she noted, adding that tickets are going fast.
The Millsboro Country Festival was created last year as a signature event, to replace the town’s former Big Thursday festivities. The daylong festivities include live music, food and a car show.
The Dirt Road Outlawz also performed at last year’s festival.
“They were really well received last year,” said Simmons. “They will be performing again this year. It should be a fun time.”
