Officials of the True Blue Music Concert, an event originally set to feature Scott Stapp this Saturday, have made the decision to postpone the performance to a later date, according to an announcement on the True Blue Music website. 

Per the scheduling announcement, “Due to an increase in COVID-19 case numbers amongst our community, and a lack of event ticket sales, we feel it is best for all parties involved if we reschedule.” 

“We are still holding a free to all ages party,” said True Blue Music event director Paul Wilkes. According to Wilkes, the event will start at 4:30p.m. and include three bands, a dunk tank and other games.

Menomonie was set to open its arms to Grammy-winner Scott Stapp, the man who composed and performed the hit single “With Arms Wide Open” as Creed’s lead vocalist over two decades ago. 

The concert will take place on the corner of Sixth Avenue and South Broadway Street in the municipal parking lot located across the street from Diablo Blue at 108 Sixth Ave. W.

Promoted by Fusion Events and Downtown Menomonie Inc., the event will raise funds to further the progression of Menomonie’s urban district. Downtown Menomonie Inc. is “a non-profit, charitable organization that works together with downtown property owners and business owners to build a strong and vibrant downtown commercial district,” according to their website.  

Stapp recorded his third studio album, “The Space Between the Shadows,” in 2019. The album includes “Purpose for Pain” as its lead single. He is also known for major hits such as “My own Prison,” “Higher” and “One Last Breath.” 

Other sponsors include The Heights, The Den, Classic Rock 92.1 and Real Rock 92.9 the X. 

General student admission to see Stapp play will be $16. You must be 21 years or older to purchase alcoholic beverages at this event.
