Atlanta-based act the Indigo Girls — Amy Ray and Emily Saliers — are on for a concert at Daniel Island’s Family Circle Magazine Tennis Center’s new Veranda (the area in the grand lawn area behind the Family Circle Tennis Center Clubhouse) on Sat. Sept. 26 at 6 p.m.
Advance general admission tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday (July 17) for $27.50 online at ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets will be available (if they don’t sell out beforehand) for $32.50 on the day of the show.
“The Indigo Girls are one of the top folk rock bands in America,” says concert manager and promoter Carter McMillan. “They are sure to put on a great outdoor performance, and the Veranda is the perfect venue for a fall concert under the stars.” The sturdy duo have been at it for nearly 20 years, frequently visiting Charleston venues. They return this time in support of their tenth studio album, Poseidon and the Bitter Bug, released in May in the Girls’ own imprint.
“I am overwhelmingly excited to be independent because it really is where the heart of music sits for me,” says Amy Ray in a recent press release. “I don’t have many regrets about the major-label life of the band because we certainly got a lot out of it. We were lucky enough to be on Epic when Pearl Jam and Rage Against The Machine were our label-mates and the company was developing bands with the intent of creating catalog artists. That has all changed, and it’s just not worth being on a major. It hasn’t felt worth it for a long time. Beyond that, it never fed my soul the way an independent career can.”
The Veranda can accommodate 2,500 fans with general admission floor and bleacher seating. Fan can access the venue through the main gate in front of the Stadium. Food and beverages will be available at all events.
