The concert serves as the ceremonial kick off to the The Salvation Army’s Christmas fundraising season, as well as for Downtown Dazzle, the annual celebration of the holiday season in Downtown. Dazzle is presented by the Downtown Council, Visit KC, the City of Kansas City and the neighborhoods and attractions of Downtown KC.
Downtown Dazzle serves as a collective that’s designed to promote shopping, dining, entertainment and the Downtown lifestyle during the holiday season… through Dec. 30. Dazzle represents an active partnership with the shopping, dining and entertainment districts and neighborhoods of Downtown Kansas City, including The City Market, Crossroads Arts District, Crown Center, the historic 18th & Vine District, Power & Light District, Union Hill, Union Station, West Bottoms, Westside and the KC Streetcar.
The fourth annual RTRK spectacular will feature the Plain White T’s, The Mowgli’s and New Politics – currently on tour together in the 3 Dimensional Tour – on the KC Live stage beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The concert is free and open to the first 6,000 attendees, so fans are encouraged to register and arrive early.
The concert marks the official beginning of The Salvation Army’s important Christmas campaign, this year chaired by Dr. Troy Nash, managing director for public sector consulting at Newmark Grubb Zimmer in Kansas City. Dr. Nash, a longtime volunteer and supporter of The Army, is ready to share his passion with the rest of the KC community.
