Historic Theatres, Campgrounds, Wineries and More across America to Host “One-Man Rock & Country Music Show” in 2018

Phoenix, Ariz. - On November 28 and 29, 2016, independent touring and recording artist, speaker and radio talk show host, Scott Helmer set a new Guinness World Records title for "Most Live Music Performances in 24 Hours (multiple cities),"  by successfully performing twelve concerts in 24 hours during a race against time that stretched across California and Arizona.  Beginning at 9 PM PST on November 28 at Tin Roof in San Diego and concluding 24 hours later at Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix, Helmer's entire attempt was used to help twelve worthy causes raise money and awareness for their good work while making history at the same time.

Although It took the team of records managers at Guinness nearly a year to review the evidence and issue the new title, Helmer admits that was okay with him stating,  "I would have waited another year because once you actually receive the title and have it in hand, it's incredible and well worth the wait!'
