PHOENIX — National touring and recording artist Scott Helmer has opened for iconic acts including Heart, Eddie Money, Big Country and 3 Doors Down, and when he embarks on his next United States tour in May, he will once again provide opening support for some of the biggest names in music.
In addition, he will headline shows at more than 50 historic vaudeville theaters across the country. Helmer has now announced that he will also be adding performance dates at campgrounds, ranches and resorts along his tour route.
Bay Harbor Motor Coach Resort in Bay Harbor, Mich.; Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Mont.; and Cozy Creek Family Campground in Tunkhannock, Pa.; are just three of the venues that have already booked Helmer to perform at their properties.
Helmer will perform solo-acoustic at these types of venues for a flat fee of $250 and crowds can expect an upbeat and energetic two-hour show consisting of rock and country favorites, in addition to his own material. The show is perfect for all ages and fans will get to see what he does on arena and theater stages across the United States, in an intimate, up close and personal setting, the release noted.

Helmer will be touring with full production sound and lighting suitable for crowds up to 200 people. Venues expecting larger turnouts should be prepared to provide the necessary equipment to present a bigger show. Campgrounds, ranches and resorts wishing to book Helmer for a solo-acoustic performance at their property any time between May 1 and May 1, 2015, should contact booking manger, Marissa Daly, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with their desired dates.
Helmer’s upcoming tour will be in support of his new CD, Wake Me When It’s Over. The contagious, radio-friendly rock album was written and performed by Helmer and his photographer-musician brother, Rich Helmer. Its songs describe journeys of pain and loss, but ultimately point towards a pathway of hope, he explained.
“In 2008, I made a huge mistake and lost everything. Without the help of my family and a few close friends, I would have been living on the streets,” Helmer said in explaining of his reasons behind the campaign. “So from my own experience, I know just how important a support system can be to help out with even the most basic of human needs; food, shelter and most importantly, hope.”
