Concert For A Cure Ready to Rock in August

Cabell Huntington Hospital and St. Mary’s Medical Center will host the second annual Concert for a Cure Saturday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m. at Barboursville Park Amphitheater located on County Road 31/6 inside Barboursville Park.

The concert raises awareness and honors survivors of all forms of cancer. Thunderstruck: America’s AC/DC and Resurrection: A Journey Tribute will perform. From Louisville, Ky., Thunderstruck recreates the spirit and energy of a live AC/DC show through meticulously following the tones and structures of each song’s original studio and live versions. Featuring some of Nashville’s hottest musicians, Resurrection faithfully recreates the experience of a 1980s Journey concert.DSC1272
