Singer/Songwriter Ben Wells is keeping busy this summer on his “Untuck Ya Shirt” tour. Now Ben has announced he will be stopping by a few baseball parks, which is sure to be fun for the fans as well as Ben. Along the way he will have the chance to perform his songs, sing the National Anthem and even get a chance to take to the pitchers mound!
The tour gets started with the “Pre Tour Kickoff Party” at Renegades in West Palm Beach, FL (June 7th). Then June 12th Ben and the band hit the road to Valdosta, GA (hometown of country rocker) to start their 11 night, 9 city, 7 state tour. The third stop of the tour will be in Myrtle Beach, SC at the Boathouse, home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Pelicans are an advanced A affiliate of the Texas Rangers celebrating their 15th anniversary season. On June 14th Ben will have the honor of throwing out the first pitch of the game verses The Carolina Mudcats (Cleveland Indians). On June 16th Ben will get the chance to sing the National Anthem at the Hickory Crawdads game verses the Delmarva Shorebirds in Hickory, NC. Ben is an enthusiastic baseball fan and is excited about the opportunity saying,
“I’ve never thrown out a first pitch to anything, this is definitely going to be a first, but I look forward to it. I for sure haven’t sang such an historic song in this type of atmosphere. It’s going to be a blast though. I might better start warmin gup now”
Ben will also be performing at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA on Saturday, August 31st. A big Atlanta Braves fan, Ben is more than excited to get this opportunity.
“It’s crazy, I’ve only been to Turner Field as a fan. Even though I’m still a fan, it’s unreal to kind of be standing on the “other side of the fence”. We’re going to rock it out, and you can bet we’re going to be LOUD. With the Braves’ lineup this year, I can only imagine where they’ll be standing come August. All the guys are excited, and we can’t wait to turn up and drink a few beers with some fellow Braves fanatics.”
This summer is sure to be one for Ben to remember. Do you want to catch Ben Well out on the road? Check out his website for more information and a full tour schedule. www.benwellsonline.com
