In just a few short weeks, Fayetteville will be full of folks from all over the world visiting during the annual Walmart shareholders meeting on Friday, June 1.

As usual, the world’s largest retailer has booked a few concerts in the days leading up to the event, and Walmart spokesperson Dianna Gee confirmed that Carrie Underwood, Aerosmith and Cheap Trick will perform during the festivities at Bud Walton Arena this year.

Underwood and an unnamed “special guest” will perform at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, and Aerosmith and Cheap Trick will perform at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30.

Gee said tickets were made available to Walmart associates over the weekend, but that they are technically “sold out.”

“It’s our 50th year, so there’s been a lot of excitement by the associates around that,” she said.

If, for some reason, the Walmart associates don’t claim their tickets, Gee said the public would be admitted for the shows.
