Singer-songwriter and Meridian native Steve Forbert will perform in a benefit concert on Thursday, Oct. 4, at the MSU Riley Center in Meridian. The performance will benefit LOVE's Kitchen, a charity that feeds the hungry and homeless.
Forbert has recorded over 25 albums, and recently released a new album, "Strange Names & New Sensations". He had a huge hit with "Romeo's Tune" in 1980.
"All of the proceeds from the event will actually go to operating expenses and the cost of food for LOVE's Kitchen," said LOVE's Kitchen executive director,
Tickets will go on sale Sept. 5 at the MSU Riley Center. The cost for A seating is $25.00; B seating tickets are $20.00.
