Country artist Love and Theft will perform at Concerts For A Cure Spring Fling on April 22. The musical duo performance was announced Thursday night at DSU Live’s reveal party.
Love and Theft was originally a Nashville-based trio but now features members Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson. They debuted in 2009 with their album World Wide Open and their single “Runaway,” which made its way onto Billboard’s Hot Country Songs. Other notable songs include “Whiskey on My Breath,” “Angel Eyes” and “If You Ever Get Lonely.”
DSU Live has paired with Colleges Against Cancer this year, and all proceeds of tickets sold for Spring Fling will go to Relay for Life.
“Every year Spring Fling sales go to a charity,” said Alec Roman, Vice President of DSU Live. “This year we decided to go with a different charity and CAC asked if we could pair up, so everything from the ticket prices that every outsider pays or any ticket price that a student pays goes straight to them.”
Tickets go on sale in a few weeks and will be sold during dinner at the DUC. Tickets will cost $10 and will also include access to Relay For Life.
