FOLEY, AL and LAS VEGAS, NV (February 12, 2019) – Legends in Concert, the longest-running show in Las Vegas, has announced an all-new residency at OWA, in Foley Alabama’s Gulf Coast region. OWA is a world-class, award-winning entertainment destination owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. OWA’s design celebrates its rural roots and the area’s natural beauty. The intimate 430-seat Theater will be located in Downtown OWA, immediately adjacent to TownePlace Suites by Marriott and steps away from Tanger Outlets in Foley. Set to debut summer 2019, the acclaimed production boasting an incomparable cast of music legends, will bring its 35-year continuously operating musical tribute spectacular to its newly constructed venue in the heart of Baldwin County.
“Legends in Concert was our first choice to be the primary year-round theatrical attraction to headline our new multi-million dollar theater in the heart of Downtown OWA,” said Cody Williamson, president and CEO of Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority, the division of Poarch Band of Creek Indians that owns and operates OWA. “With their unparalleled collection of seasonally rotating featured artists and other renowned theatrical production ingredients, we are confident Legends in Concert will not only delight visitors, but also be a crucial component to OWA, and the continued growth of Baldwin County and the Gulf Coast’s tourism industry.”
Known as the pioneer of live tribute shows, Legends in Concert made its Las Vegas Strip debut in 1983 and to this day, the multi-faceted show continues to evolve its collection of live tribute artists. From artists such as Elvis Presley to Aretha Franklin, Garth Brooks to Michael Jackson, each legendary performer not only looks like the star they portray but uses their own natural voices to pay homage to their iconic music counterpart. The show will feature a variety of elaborate theatrical sets, magnificent costumes, and a full array of incredible special effects, and much more.
“Building on our show’s three and a half decades of success, we are thrilled to bring the legendary production to another fast-growing, family-friendly destination, while also expanding the powerful long term multi-year agreement with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians,” said Brian Brigner, chief operating officer of On Stage Enterprises, producers of Legends. “Along with regional partnerships including other outstanding Baldwin County businesses soon to be announced, we are very excited to have Tanger Outlets join us in welcoming Legends in Concert at OWA. Shoppers at Tanger will be able to receive special discounts to our Legends series and we will be promoting their outlet stores in creative and fun ways, not only during our performances but through periodic appearances at the Tanger Outlet.”
Since its debut in 1983, Legends in Concert has earned countless entertainment industry awards including “Show of the Year,” “Entertainers of the Year,” “Grand Slam,” the prestigious “Show of Shows” awarded by the International Press Association, and was most recently awarded the 2018 “Casino Production Show of the Year,” at the sixth annual Casino Entertainment Awards, presented by The Global Gaming Expo (G2E).
