GULF SHORES, AL (WBRC) – The release of free concert tickets to promote tourism to the Gulf Coast has been delayed.
Originally, the tickets were set to be released on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. Now, the release has been pushed back two day to Friday morning at 10:00 a.m.
The purpose of the concerts is to get more people to visit the Gulf Coast after the BP oil spill caused several vacationers to cancel their yearly plans. Officials hope the extra incentive will help business in the area to thrive despite the meager summer income.
When the tickets become available, they can be obtained at frontgatetickets.com.
