Glen Campbell: THE GOODBYE TOUR
Friday, March 23, 8 pm
Tickets on Sale Friday, December 16th at Noon
Tickets start at $35 (plus applicable ticketing fees)

Glen Campbell is truly a living legend. He came on the scene in 1967 with the Grammy Award winning song Gentle On My Mind and continued with a string of hits which included By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Wichita Lineman and Galveston. Campbell’s striking good-looks and folksy charm made him an instant television success with his variety series, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour making Glen Campbell a household name and a true entertainment superstar. His latest album, Ghost On the Canvas, is the story of Glen Campbell’s life. With beauty, power, heartfelt emotion and deep spirituality, this set of songs traces the arc of Campbell’s 75 years: From dirt-poor, tiny-town Arkansas origins to Hollywood triumphs on the pop charts, TV and movies; from barnstorming days of youthful touring to hobnobbing with Elvis, Sinatra and the Duke; from troubled free-falls of addiction and bad life choices to personal and spiritual redemption. It is a privilege to have this Country Music icon grace our stage! This performance is not to be missed! http://glencampbellmusic.com/

Not your typical a cappella group, Straight No Chaser offers a refreshing spin on modern pop. Formed over a dozen years ago by a group of students at Indiana University, Straight No Chaser touts more than 20 million views on YouTube, numerous television appearances and wild success with the release of their 2008 and 2009 holiday albums, “Holiday Spirits” and “Christmas Cheers.” Straight No Chaser lives up to its name.

The group’s latest album, “With A Twist,” features their versions of such classics as Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” and fuses together timeless hits such as Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz.
