Landau is coming to town Saturday


This is Landau’s thirteenth “Home for the Holidays” tour and is sponsored statewide by West Virginia Adult Education and locally by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are available at www.landaumurphyjr.com or the box office the evening of the show


LOGAN Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. brings his “Home for the Holidays” tour to the Coalfield Jamboree on Saturday, December ninth.


Logan’s own Landau, the season six winner of NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent, will be joined by a few friends at the Coalfield in downtown Logan; American Idol performer Kamron Lawson and Holly Forbes from The Voice are scheduled to perform this Saturday at 7 p.m.


Santa Claus, recently announced on WVOW’s What’s Your Opinion, will be making a special appearance at the concert to “visit all the folks in Logan to see who has been naughty and nice this year”. Santa Clause can be heard every weekday afternoon on WVOW reading letters from local boys and girls live on the air.


This is Landau’s thirteenth “Home for the Holidays” tour and is sponsored statewide by West Virginia Adult Education and locally by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are available at www.landaumurphyjr.com or the box office the evening of the show unless sold out in advance.

"I’m happy to do this as my Christmas gift to the community." - Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

Landau’s tour will make several stops across West Virginia and Kentucky,but bringing the tour to Logan was very special to him.


“In all the other cities I play in, show promoters are happy to pay to bring in our Christmas show as a treat for their communities. They didn’t do that here, so I rented out the Coalfield Jamboree at my own expense to make sure people in my home area got to experience the big Christmas show without having to drive to Charleston or Huntington or fly out to see me in Atlantic City, Florida or Vegas. The people of Logan County have always supported me, long before I was on America’s Got Talent, so I’m happy to do this as my Christmas gift to the community,” said Murphy.


Landau still maintains a home in the Logan area and can often be found working out at the Chief Logan State Park Recreation Center, visiting local restaurants, or supporting local youth athletics when not on tour or recording out of town. Murphy just wrapped up recording tracks for his fifth album, this time featuring all original material, last month in Las Vegas, produced by Air Supply songwriter Rob Hegel.


For the Coalfield Jamboree performance this Saturday, Landau is making it extra special with a free red-carpet experience for all attendees.


“Come out dressed up and have your photo taken of your big night out on the town; this can be your Christmas party,” said Landau.


Fans are encouraged to bring a toy for Landau’s Kids Joy Toy Drive and receive a digital copy of his “Christmas Made For Two” full-length Christmas album. The 2023 Christmas tour will feature Landau crooning through an all-new show filled with Christmas classics and fan favorites from the Great American Songbook and the Magic of Motown.


Two special guests will join Landau for the Logan show only: fellow West Virginian; Kamron Lawson; the Beckley native who wowed the judges this season on “American Idol” and became a viral internet sensation when he auditioned and won the hearts of viewers all over America. Landau will also share the stage at the Coalfield Jamboree with Holly Forbes from NBC TV’s The Voice . Landau also plans to bring a surprise international artist to spread Christmas cheer and dazzle the hometown crowd.


Landau is a proud spokesperson for West Virginia Adult Education after earning his high school equivalency diploma with other adult learners. WVAE staffers will be on hand at all Mountain State tour stops to assist those interested in achieving their diplomas and to help collect toys for needy kids in conjunction with Landau’s Kids Joy Toy Drive.


Landau also assisted with a fundraiser last week for the reemerging Logan High School Marching Band, where he donated a portion of proceeds from all tickets sold to the band program.


Landau also stressed that he wants money not to be a factor for folks who would like to attend but can’t afford a ticket.


“We have a Secret Santa show sponsor who will supply free tickets to anyone in need, no questions asked. If you know a family who would like to attend but can’t afford tickets this year, call or text 304-989-3360, and we will make that happen. Merry Christmas!”
