[UPDATE 6/5/19 – The Events page on Kodi’s website, which listed his upcoming performances, appears to have been deleted. There are no updates on Kodi’s social media about this, so it looks like his live performances may still be up in the air. The Shamrock Irish Pub, for example, still lists the Midnight Satellites as performing June 7 and July 5, but it’s possible Kodi may not join them. Keep this in mind and consider contacting the venue if you’re interested in attending any of the previously scheduled shows.]
The internet has been buzzing about Kodi Lee, the 22-year-old singer who received the first Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent this season. His beautiful voice, impressive piano skills, and story of living with blindness and autism brought viewers to tears.
We won’t see Kodi Lee on AGT again until the live shows. But fans may be able to see him perform live before then! Kodi is scheduled to perform at various venues around Southern California. Since he appeared on television, seats to the shows have become highly coveted.
Kodi’s Performances Are In Demand
Paul Little, who owns the Shamrock Irish Pub in Murrieta, told TMZ that Kodi’s June 7 appearance with cover band the Midnight Satellites has inspired a flood of reservations. The Old Town Blues Club, meanwhile, increased its capacity from 75 to 200 ahead of Kodi’s July 6 appearance.
However, there has apparently been some uncertainty about whether Kodi is allowed to appear at these venues under his contract with AGT. Heavy contacted Gourmet Italia Restaurant about his scheduled June 2 show, and was informed that it had to be canceled. It was also apparently uncertain whether he would appear at the Shamrock on June 7.
The Show May Go On For Kodi
Kodi Lee’s contract with AGT may not actually be a problem for his upcoming performances. TMZ has reported that, according to sources at the show, there’s nothing in his contract keeping him from performing shows. The only requirement is that he shows up for scheduled filming and events.
Kodi’s website has an Events page which lists various scheduled shows for the rest of the year. Below are the appearances he has scheduled for this summer.
7th – Shamrock Irish Pub – Murrieta, CA
9th – Gourmet Italia – Temecula, CA
16th – Gourmet Italia – Temecula, CA
22nd – Miramonte Winery – Temecula, CA
5th – Shamrock Irish Pub – Murrieta, CA
6th – Old Town Blues Club – Temecula, CA
13th – Maurice Car’rie Winery – Temecula, CA
3rd – Old Town Blues Club – Temecula, CA
Kodi’s website has more information on each of these shows. If you’re interested in attending one of the performances, it may be a good idea to check in with the venues directly to confirm whether Kodi will be appearing. And if he is, get your tickets fast! They are selling out quickly.
We can’t wait until the live shows to see more AGT performances from Kodi Lee. Until then, it’s nice to know that some fans may be able to see him in person.
