Sheryl Crow, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Weezer to Perform at 34th Albertsons Boise Open Presented by Chevron
The 34th annual Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron announced the concert lineup for this year’s event to be held August 24 – 27 at Hillcrest Country Club. The first event of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron features four days of PGA TOUR golf with three concerts at Hillcrest in the evenings following the first three tournament rounds.
Last year, the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron set the Korn Ferry Tour charity record delivering THREE MILLION DOLLARS to charities. The event will continue its rich history of supporting charity by adding to the nearly $33 Million raised since the inaugural event in 1990. A portion of the money raised for charity will once again come from the Mondelez Tickets Support Charity Program where 100% of all event ticket sales support local charities. Through the Mondelez Tickets Support Charity program, all ticket purchasers will select the local charity their ticket purchase will support.
The concerts will kick off following golf on Thursday, August 24th with nine-time Grammy winner, Sheryl Crow. Crow’s first nine studio albums have sold 35 million copies worldwide; seven charted in the Top 10, and five were certified for Multi-Platinum sales. Most recently, the full-length documentary film based on Crow’s life and career, entitled Sheryl, premiered to critical acclaim at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival ahead of its network premiere on SHOWTIME.
Following golf on Friday night, rock and roll legend Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will take the stage. Formed in 1979 and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classic “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.”
On Saturday night, American rock band Weezer will rock the stage with their numerous chart-topping megahits “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song),” “Say It Ain’t So,” “El Scorcho,” “Hash Pipe,” “Island In The Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans,” and more. Weezer has won Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards, and more throughout their career and sold 10 million albums in the U.S., and over 35 million records worldwide.
“We are excited for another entertaining year of exciting PGA TOUR golf by day and amazing concerts at night at Hillcrest Country Club,” said Jeff Sanders, CEO of Jeff Sanders Entertainment, the company that promotes and operates the event. “Last year the event set charity records and thanks to our amazing sponsors Albertsons, Chevron, over 100 additional major sponsors and 800 loyal Boise volunteers, we hope to do that again while hosting the most fan friendly and affordable event here in Boise.”
