Dan + Shay Perform Private Concert in Orlando for Diamond Resorts Members


The exclusive show was the country duo’s first since signing on as Diamond Celebrity ambassadors

LAS VEGAS, NV (July 19, 2018) – Diamond Resorts™, a global leader in the hospitality, vacation ownership and entertainment industries, provided members an exclusive opportunity to enjoy a private concert by country music stars Dan + Shay on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Florida.

The award-winning, platinum-selling duo, who have four No. 1 singles at country radio, including their latest multi-week No. 1 “Tequila,” joined Diamond Resorts as celebrity ambassadors in May 2018. The duo’s brand-new self-titled third album, which recently made its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, is now available.

The first concert in the Diamond Resorts partnership was a hit with more than 250 members in attendance. The duo performed all of their hits, including “How Not To,” “From the Ground Up,” and “19 You + Me.” They closed out the night with a standing ovation-worthy performance of “Tequila.”

“It’s a small venue, it’s personal,” Diamond Resorts member Deborah Lefort said after the show. Lefort, who attended with her husband and family – all Dan + Shay fans – said it was their first time attending a Diamond Live concert and they loved getting to enjoy the intimate performance as a family. “They were very cordial, they were friendly, they were great to the whole audience. It was wonderful.”

Dan + Shay are scheduled to perform several additional shows this year and at many of them, Diamond Resorts members will have an opportunity to meet and take photos with the stars. Attending members will also be treated to heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks, before the private performance.

“These guys know how to put on a show,” said Mike Flaskey, Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Resorts. “It was an incredible experience for our members to see them perform in such a cool space in downtown Orlando. Dan + Shay are one of the most popular names in country music today and we are so honored to have them as part of our Diamond Resorts family.”

Dan + Shay represent Diamond Resorts alongside a roster of celebrity ambassadors, including country music artists Cole Swindell, Lee Brice, Jana Kramer, Lauren Alaina and Lee Ann Womack. Each is scheduled to perform several shows throughout the year at Diamond’s most desirable destinations across North America.

In 2018, Diamond Resorts expects to hold more than 100 Diamond Live events, including comedy shows, live culinary experiences and private concerts. To see the full 2018 Diamond Live concert lineup, visit
