  Idol kissee in concert this week in Enid

Enid's quarterly Calendar of Events available here NEW for July, August & September

Perhaps the most celebrated unsuccessful audition in American Idol history belongs to Enid native Benjamin Glaze, and you have the chance this week to see him in concert. Plus there's a state championship on the line, and a chance to win a Louis Vuitton purse. Come stake your claim for fun this week in Enid.

Ben Glaze in concert

Ben Glaze Enid

Remember this past season of American Idol when Katy Perry kissed a contestant? The lucky recipient of that kiss was Enid's Ben Glaze, and he'll be performing Saturday night at the Moose Lodge. Glaze did not earn a Golden Ticket after the kiss and a shaky audition. However, he does not blame Perry for not qualifying, saying he was glad to be part of the Idol process and he should have calmed himself regardless of the kiss. Glaze comes from a musical family, and his sister Brieanna Glaze, will be his special guest on stage at the non-smoking Moose Lodge. Don't miss this special night of music. Admission is just $10, and you must be 21 to purchase alcohol.
