Lance loves Austin with free Sheryl Crow concert

By Tim Maloney, European Editor

With Sheryl Crow's new disc "Wildflower" being released later this week on September 27 and a short concert tour slated to start in mid-October, her fiancé Lance Armstrong, the retired seven-times Tour de France winner turned guitar tech has decided to organize a free concert by Crow in Austin to thank his hometown, aptly entitled "Lance Thanks Austin", scheduled for Sunday, October 2, at Auditorium Shores in Austin at 4pm.

It's a special day for Lance, as it's the ninth anniversary of the diagnosis of his testicular cancer and he will also be able to welcome participants in third Tour of Hope, a cross-country cycling event that Armstrong participates in to raise awareness for clinical trials. But most of all, Lance wants to return the love from the good folks of Austin, who have supported him since he moved to the Texas capital in 1990."It has been an honour for me to call Austin home," said Armstrong, "And it's always nice to see the folks of Austin over in France at the Tour. It is my pleasure to say thanks to my fellow residents for their continued support."
