Darius Rucker to play flood benefit show in Columbia Friday


Darius Rucker caused a ripple in the Twitterverse Thursday when he tweeted that he would be in Columbia Friday.

A fan asked him if he was planning on doing a benefit concert in Charleston for flood relief, and the country star replied, “Columbia tomorrow.”

The tweet garnered several dozen favorites and retweets before being deleted.

Rucker is in fact performing in Columbia Friday, but it is a private show benefiting One SC Fund, which helps October 2015 flood victims, his publicist said.

Gov. Nikki Haley asked Rucker if he would perform, and tickets for the show at Spirit Communications Park Ballroom were sold through corporate sponsorships, his publicist said.
