The tour includes 10 different college towns across the Southeast in states such as Missouri, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia.

Having toured consistently since his junior year at the University of Arkansas, the 27-year-old Oklahoma native has spent the past six years building a fan base that enables him to routinely sell out clubs and theaters across the United States.

“Ben has an audience base that skews from high school age through college and late twenties,” David Allgood, executive manager at the Bama Theatre, said. “Tuscaloosa has a good demographic for that.”

The concert is produced and promoted by Red Mountain Entertainment, a Birmingham-based company that focuses on the production of music festivals and events in less traditional venues, such as outdoor city 
centers and parks.

Allgood said Red Mountain has plenty of experience in Tuscaloosa, since they have produced a wide number of shows at the Bama Theatre and the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater over the years.

“We just rent the theatre for them,” Allgood said. “They are in charge of producing and putting everything together.”

Betsy Kiser, marketing director at Red Mountain, said the Bama Theatre has a full capacity of 1,064, and it is expected for the show to sell out.

“We felt that the intimate setting of the Bama Theatre would be a better experience for Ben Rector’s fans to get up close and personal with his energetic live performance,” she said.

“The Walking in Between” is Rector’s fifth and most recent album, released in August 2013. That same year, he sold 100,000 records and two million 
singles online.

Tickets for Ben Rector’s Tuscaloosa concert can be found on Ticketmaster for $20. The next concert of his Fall 2014 Tour will be at The Lyric Oxford in Oxford, Mississippi, followed by a stop in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Friend and fellow musician John McLaughlin will be accompanying Rector as special guest.
