CHARLESTON — Landau Murphy’s only scheduled Charleston area public performance in 2013 is a benefit for the Community Music Association and Junior Achievement of West Virginia.
“The Landau Spring Fling at the Municipal Auditorium will include lots of new songs along with your favorite Landau tunes, plus some other surprises that Landau’s fans have never seen before including a “Murphy Meets Motown” section of the show. But you’ll still get to experience the same warm, fun, friendly Landau that won America’s hearts and represents West Virginia so well”, commented Murphy’s manager Burke Allen. As a special added bonus, The Charleston Ballet will also make a brief appearance at the concert.
Murphy’s recent appearances took him around the world. He was part of an Armed Forces Entertainment tour of Europe to perform for members of the U.S. Military and their families, which Murphy called a “huge honor.” He appeared on “China’s Got Talent” program and is in discussions to headline his first tour of China this year, including a stop at Shanghai’s Mercedes Benz Arena.
Murphy toured Florida and Oklahoma, where he performed at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Murphy’s upcoming performances include the honor of singing the National Anthem and doing the halftime performance for the sold out Oklahoma City Thunder/Miami Heat NBA finals rematch and concerts his schedule includes Las Vegas, Beverly Hills, the Sands Casino in Michigan and Hollywood Casino in Columbus.
Murphy will perform his first-ever concert at the Charleston Municipal Auditorium Saturday, April 6, 2013, at 7 p.m.
“I’m honored to help raise funds for Junior Achievement of West Virginia and for my friends at the Community Music Association, and am really looking forward to coming back to Charleston to play at the Municipal Auditorium”, said Landau.
