COLUMBIA — Organizers of Tuesday's Lucinda Williams concert have made arrangements to let audiences cool off.
There will be several tents in the park for people to take shade, as well as misting stations, Thumper Entertainment director Jessica Brown said. In addition, the company will be serving free cold water so that everyone can stay hydrated during the event, she said.
Although a heat advisory will be in effect through Thursday evening, Thumper Entertainment does not expect a low turnout for the concert.
Brown said there has been no decrease in ticket sales due to the heat. She expects approximately 1,500 people to show up to the concert, which starts at 6 p.m.
"We do know that it will be pretty hot," Brown said. "We still anticipate to have a great turn out."
The company has been selling tickets for nearly a month and plans to have plenty of tickets at the door Tuesday.
General admission for the concert costs $28, and VIP tickets cost $48, according to previous Missourian reports.
