Fayetteville Flyer, AR
May 15, 2012
In just a few short weeks, Fayetteville will be full of folks from all over the world visiting during the annual Walmart shareholders meeting on Friday, June 1.
As usual, the worldâ€™s largest retailer has booked a few concerts in the days leading up to the event, and Walmart spokesperson Dianna Gee confirmed that Carrie Underwood, Aerosmith and Cheap Trick will perform during the festivities at Bud Walton Arena this year.
Underwood and an unnamed â€œspecial guestâ€ will perform at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, and Aerosmith and Cheap Trick will perform at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30.
Gee said tickets were made available to Walmart associates over the weekend, but that they are technically â€œsold out.â€
â€œItâ€™s our 50th year, so thereâ€™s been a lot of excitement by the associates around that,â€ she said.
If, for some reason, the Walmart shareholders donâ€™t claim their tickets, Gee said the public would be admitted for the shows.
