Musician and Guinness World Records Holder Extends Marathon Concert Tour to Help Fundraise for Cause He Believes in Most
Phoenix, Ariz. - Armed with a portable stage, lights and sound for crowds up to 500 people, Scott Helmer's "One-Man Rock & Country Music Show" is bringing the concert to them and giving equine therapy organizations of all sizes across America the opportunity to raise money and awareness for their important work with one of his fun and exciting concerts right at their own facility (photos). Originally planned to end on December 31, 2019, Helmer’s concert tour will now run through December 31, 2020, and his team have already begun booking new dates.
“We’ve had such an incredible response that I’ve decided to extend my tour for another year so that many more equine therapy programs across the US can participate,” says Helmer.
Available dates and routing are first come first served and space is limited. Equine-assisted activity and therapy programs and organizations that would like to fundraise for their cause in 2020 alongside Scott Helmer’s "One-Man Rock & Country Music Show," which is suitable for all ages, can learn more and register at his EQUINE THERAPY FUNDRAISER BOOKING REQUEST page.
Since 2012 Scott Helmer’s special fundraising concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their families, equine-assisted therapy, suicide prevention, first responders, pet and animal rescues, food banks, historic places, special needs children and adults, and more. Helmer has also opened for artists like Heart, Eddie Money, 3 Doors Down, Jeff Bridges, Big Country and Eric Burdon & The Animals.
For 2019 the singer, songwriter, musician, talk radio host and Guinness World Records holder for "Most Live Music Performances in 24 Hours (multiple cities)” has decided to focus all of his time and effort on supporting the one cause that resonates most with his own story and helps the widest range of individuals that he has a personal connection with: equine therapy.
Helmer's entire mission of using his music and comeback story to make a difference was born after making mistakes in his own life, facing time in prison and being seconds away from committing suicide. Learn more at his website.

As an added bonus and fundraising tool Scott Helmer, together with support from Godin Guitars and Seagull Guitars will be donating one of his brand new guitars used during the show to the equine therapy organization so that it can be raffled or auctioned off at the end of night.
“I’m going to try and give a guitar away at every show to really help supercharge the fundraising totals for each equine therapy program,” says Helmer.
