Tickets are now on sale for Catie Turner’s Hometown Concert as she makes her East Coast solo debut in Middletown this May.
With her first single “Prom Queen” dropping Friday, Mar. 1, and a summer release for her EP, Turner is coming home. She will be performing Saturday, May 4, at the Middletown Community Park. Gates open at 2 p.m. and tickets cost $10.
Turner won the hearts and minds of Bucks County residents, then the nation in her beautiful American Idol performances last year. Though she did not win the competition, the Langhorne native placed seventh and toured through the summer with other top contestants.
Middletown Parks & Rec made the announcement Thursday and stated the concert is a fundraiser. A portion of the funds will go towards the Middletown Community Foundation. Also, a food drive will collect non-perishables for the Emergency Relief Association.
Known for her quirky humor, acoustic guitar, and original songs, Turner has developed a large following. Her new single is an introspective piece weaving a story familiar to outsiders.
The now nationally recognized artist visited WBCB 1490 last March for Speak Your Piece. Turner spoke with host Pat Wandling about her love for music and beginnings.
Concert-goers should bring a chair or blanket to camp out in the grass. Shuttles will run from Maple Point Middle School to the venue from 2 to 7 p.m. Hungry attendees will be able to purchase food from concessions.
“Nothing But A Nightmare” will open for Turner and she is scheduled to perform at 4 p.m. The Middletown Community Park is located at 2600 Langhorne-Yardley Road. Tickets are available online here.
