Officials of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren announced the details surrounding the tournament’s Friday concert event. The Concert @17 presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort will feature American rock ‘n’ roll legend, former lead guitarist of the Eagles, and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Don Felder.
The second-year event will be held Friday evening, Aug. 25, following the first round of tournament competition at the official PGA TOUR Champions event’s famed 17th hole.
Tickets for the 2023 Ally Challenge are now on sale. The tournament is open to spectators from Thursday (Aug. 24) to Sunday (Aug. 27) and ticket prices start at $10. For a complete listing of ticket options visit theallychallenge.com.
Access to The Concert @17, and the Ally Community Concert featuring Miranda Lambert, require the purchase of a valid tournament ticket for the day each concert is hosted, or a weekly ticket option.
“The Concert @17 presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort has been a great addition to tournament week at The Ally Challenge,” said Erin Stone, the tournament’s director of business development and community engagement. “Providing a first-class experience for our spectators is a primary goal of the tournament, and to bring classic rock guitar hero Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles, to the famed 17th hole at Warwick Hills on Friday night is a big win for our fans and music lovers alike.”
The 2023 Ally Challenge will take place the week of August 21 – 27 at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club.
The Ally Challenge will be one of the premier Regular Season events on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2023, which will give way to the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, a season-ending, three-tournament series used to determine the TOUR’s season-long champion.
All three rounds of The Ally Challenge will be broadcast on the Golf Channel. For more information, visit theallychallenge.com.
Don Felder, a true American rock and roll guitar hero, is very much looking forward to building upon his rich legacy as one of the most innovative riff-generating songwriters of the modern rock era while continuing his growth as a featured touring and recording solo artist.
To that end, Felder finds himself most decidedly back in the driver’s seat with the release of his first solo album in seven years, American Rock ’N’ Roll (BMG). American Rock ’N’ Roll consists of 11 high-energy rockers mixed with touching, thoughtful ballads. ARnR also boasts a who’s who of A-list guest contributors including Slash, Sammy Hagar, Peter Frampton, Mick Fleetwood, Joe Satriani, Orianthi, Richie Sambora, Alex Lifeson, and many, many more.
What’s next for Felder? Extensive touring is most definitely already locked into place to get behind the majestic sounds and broad shoulders of American Rock ’N’ Roll. In the meantime, let us continue to admire the essence of Don Felder, a man who continues to push boundaries and expand horizons. It’s the only way that he can travel down that road.
