CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Rock legends Aerosmith will round out the musical entertainment at this year's Greenbrier Classic PGA golf tournament, resort officials announced Thursday.
The Greenbrier announced on social media Thursday morning that the multi-platinum artists -- known for hit songs "Dream On," "Janie's Got a Gun" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" -- will perform July 6, a Saturday, at the West Virginia State Fairgrounds in Fairlea.
They join a Fourth of July weekend entertainment slate that already included country superstar Kenny Chesney.
Greenbrier owner Jim Justice said it made sense to bring the band, sometimes referred to as "America's greatest rock 'n' roll band," to the resort during the holiday weekend.
"What could be better than having the most legendary American band of all time rock the 4th of July weekend at America's Resort?" Justice said in a statement. "Aerosmith has provided the soundtrack of American summers for decades, just as The Greenbrier has been the ultimate summer retreat for generations -- and both have never been better!"
While the last three Greenbrier Classic concert series have featured three concerts during the week of the golf tournament, officials have trimmed this year's concert series down to two acts.
Chesney will perform July 4, a Thursday.
In addition to the Aerosmith performance, tournament officials also announced Thursday they have lowered the ticket prices for this year's event.
Grounds badges for the Greenbrier Classic tournament, which runs July 1 through July 7, had been selling at $199. On Thursday, officials lowered the price to $159.
Justice said the price reduction was made to entice more people to attend this year's event.
