I’m sure all Frequency readers also faithfully read The Bulletin every day, so you probably all saw this in Saturday’s paper. But just in case, here’s a sweet deal for tonight’s Merle Haggard show that makes me wish my dad lived fewer than 2,300 miles away:
Is your dad a fan of country music?
Even if he isn’t, here’s a pretty cool gift to give him for Father’s Day: a sunny Sunday evening, lounging on the lawn at Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater and listening to country legend Merle Haggard, for free.
To celebrate Father’s Day, the amphitheater is offering one free general admission ticket for your dad when you buy one. All you have to do is head down to The Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District, bring your dad with you and buy at least one ticket, and you’ll receive one more on the house.
The deal will also be available at the venue box office before the show, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the box office opens at 4 p.m. General admission tickets cost $36 in advance and $38 the day of the show, plus additional fees.
It’s not absolutely necessary for dad to be with you if you purchase in advance from The Ticket Mill (simply tell the clerk you’re there for the Father’s Day special), but he must be with you if you buy at the box office before the show.
Les Schwab Amphitheater is located at 344 S.W. Shevlin Hixon Drive in Bend.
