With their classic mix of heartfelt lyrics and the sounds of early rock and roll, classic punk, country-folk, and deep-fried Southern soul, Lucero returns to the Levitt Shell July 15 for the ticketed Orion Shell Yeah! Benefit Concert Series.
The historic venue, in partnership with chef Kelly English and a team of local, Memphis chefs will curate a unique, picnic style dinner dubbed “Tasty Compositions” for each concert to help enhance the magical experience being back on the lawn after more than a year.
Presented by Roadshow BMW, the series will be limited capacity with safe, social-distanced pod experiences on the Shell lawn.
About Shell Yeah!
“The Shell is one of the places in Memphis that has always been an epicenter of authentic moments and organic experiences for me,” said Chef Kelly English. “I am proud to be a part of its story and to work with a truly diverse group of restaurants to bring it back from slumber.”
Formerly called “Stars of the Shell”, the Orion Shell Yeah! Benefit Concert Series at the Levitt Shell has featured artists like Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Emmy Lou Harris, Ben Folds and other incredibly talented regional and national acts.
“Proceeds raised through the Orion Shell Yeah! Benefit Concert Series at the Levitt Shell fuel our mission of building community through music that is accessible for all Memphians,” said Levitt Shell Executive Director Natalie Wilson. “This vital series powers the continued preservation of the Shell and the return to FREE, live music from our historic stage in the Fall. In fact, it allows us the opportunity to gift Memphis with a rich diversity of music from all over world.”
In year’s past there have been one-to-two fundraising concerts, but this year, the Levitt Shell will offer six Shell Yeah! Benefit Concerts. Stay tuned for the line up which will be announced soon.
