Late Monday night, Walmart confirmed what we learned yesterday, thanks to a comment by a reader: Carrie Underwood (May 29) and Aerosmith (May 30) will perform in Bud Walton Arena as a precursor to the company’s annual Shareholders’ meeting.
Tickets (rather quietly) went up on Ticketmaster late Sunday night and were available to associates for free. Several who went through the process informed me the ticket-getting procedure was quick and painless, if you were an associate in the know.
As a result, Walmart tells me all tickets for the shows have been claimed and, unlike in years past, the public can’t expect to wait outside Bud Walton and gain access to these concerts.
Something else we learned – Cheap Trick will serve as the opener for Aerosmith on May 30. Carrie Underwood will have a “special guest” but we’re unsure who that will be at this point.
To nonassociates hoping for a chance to see Aerosmith… Sorry.
