Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss to play Family Circle


REO Speedwagon comes to the PAC

Willie Nelson will be bringing his smoked-out tour bus to the Family Circle Stadium on May 8, and bluegrass greats Alison Krauss and Union Station (with Jerry Douglas) and rowdy Americana act The Devil Makes Three will be joining him. Tickets are $36.25-$92.60, and they’re on sale now via Ticketmaster or by calling (800) 745-3000.

Lest you think only the Red-headed Stranger could bring the Lowcountry back to the days before earbuds and downloads, the classic rock band REO Speedwagon (“I Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Take it on the Run”) is playing the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on May 10. That band, for what it’s worth, is nearly 50 years old. Tickets are $49.50-$70.25. For more information or to buy tickets, visit northcharlestoncoliseumpac.com.
