Lt. Dan weekend at the North Charleston Coliseum

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band are back hosting their 6th annual Lt. Dan Weekend in the Lowcountry.

This year the concert is set to begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20 at the North Charleston Coliseum.

The concert is a way to raise money for the Independence Fund, a 100 percent volunteer nonprofit organization that supports the nation's most severely injured veterans.

The weeklong event starts off at the Palm Key Retreat on Knowles Island. More than 100 severely injured veterans and their caregivers are expected to attend. Their travel was made possible through donations to the Independence Fund.

The theme of the retreat will be the art of healing, according to organizers, with activities focusing on painting, drawing, photography and music to heal both the emotional and physical wounds of war. Along with art therapy, there will be a full week of events, including kayaking, fishing, and yoga.

The party in the park will be held Friday evening at Riverfront Park. The event will give veterans and the band the chance to interact with the community with live music, food and other activities.  

Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 29 at 10 a.m. and will be available through ticketmaster.com. Tickets can also be purchased by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or in person at the North Charleston Coliseum.

Reserved seat ticket prices start at $25. VIP tickets for the concert are $125 and include premium seating as well as access to a catered pre-concert reception at the North Charleston Convention Center Ballroom.

Tickets will be discounted 10 percent through Memorial Day. All proceeds from the LDW5 events will go directly to the Independence Fund.
