It has just been announced that MacKenzie Bourg will be opening for the Rick Springfield show!!

What's better than seeing Rick Springfield in concert at the Heymann Center? How about having Acadiana's own MacKenzie Bourg opening for him???   AND, discounted tickets!!!

99.9 KTDY presents the KTDY Rick Springfield Labor Day Special: right now, special select seats, both balcony and floor, have been discounted to only $30!

MacKenzie Bourg, still reeling from his appearance on NBC's "The Voice", is ready to come home for a visit...

"Being in L. A. is great, but it's not at all like the LA (Louisiana) that I love" Mac told me today.  "I'll be home, taking a break from the studio, so it will be a welcome reprieve, AND I'll be able to play for my friends and family at the Heymann Center, so it's a really special trip home for me."

MacKenzie's new CD is a Kickstarter project, and he's excited to tell me that he is close to this goal of $15,000.  "Two thousand, two hundred dollars short, and the Kickstarter project time ends Tuesday.  Man, we are SO close!" he tells me, with a voice that started with a determined business-like tone and ended with a boyish excitement.  "I know that I have incredible fans, but this support just blows me away..... I think we'll have the fifteen (thousand) by close of the project on Tuesday."

You can help support Mac's independent album by donating to his Kickstarter program, which is a website that allows friends, fans and the common man to donate to art, music and peace projects.  Do it today, donate, the program ends Tuesday.

I asked about him opening for Rick Springfield, and I heard that boyish giggle again.  "Rick Springfield... I am excited to get to open for a "big name".  I am really amped-up to finally get to perform in the Heymann Center.  Growing up in Lafayette and always being in and out of there, it was always on my "bucket" list, so I feel that this is a great opportunity."

Get your tickets now at the Heymann Center box office or through

It's Rick Springfield and MacKenzie Bourg at the Heymann Center, September 5th!
