GRANITE CITY — Former rodeo rider Moe Bandy will be singing his heart out.
On Saturday, Bandy will be performing at 6 p.m. at Tri City Speedway, 5100 Nameoki Road. The show is a benefit for the Legendary Mustang Sanctuary, and mustangs from the sanctuary will be on display in the corral beginning at 2 p.m.
The Legendary Mustang Sanctuary’s goal is to find the horses adoptive homes. Government agencies round up wild mustangs from across the country and bring them in to be cared for, tamed and adopted.
“We are really excited about the Moe Bandy concert at Tri-City Speedway,” sanctuary owner Kathy Lewis said. “Ron Young Productions heard of us and wanted to do a benefit concert. The show is going to be great and all the proceeds from the event will come to the Mustang Sanctuary to cover the costs for the horses and the needs for the grounds and equipment such as sand, hay, shelters and panels and, of course, the trailer to transport them.”
Bandy rose to fame in the 1970s, achieving success on the country charts through the mid-1980s with hits such as “It Was Always So Easy” and the No. 1 hit “I Cheated Me Right Out Of You.” He also released several albums with singing partner Joe Stampley.
Bandy opened the Americana Theatre in Branson, Mo., in 1991, where he frequently performs.
Tickets for the concert are $20 for general admission and $40 for VIP passes and are available at ACE Printing on Airline Drive in East Alton, Andy’s Automotive in Alton and Wood River, Alton’s Atrium Hotel and Alton’s CVB; and Tri-City Speedway in Granite City.
