Contemporary country band Lonestar will make its Center for the Performing Arts debut with a February appearance at the Palladium.
Balancing traditional country and honky-tonk roots with a pop-rock sensibility, Lonestar has logged several platinum-selling albums and 10 #1 country singles during its 20-plus years on the scene. Those hits have included “No News,” “Come Crying to Me,” “I’m Already There,” “What About Now,” “My Front Porch Looking In” and the crossover smash “Amazed,” which achieved the rare feat of topping the Billboard Hot 100 as well as the country charts.
The band is distinguished by its members’ songwriting, which The Guardian called an example of “country’s greatest strength: picture-painting, story-based, tear-your-heart-out lyrics that are the most direct and lucid in popular music.”
The concert begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, at the Palladium. Tickets starting at $30 are on sale now at the Palladium Box Office, online at TheCenterPresents.org and by phone at (317) 843-3800. The event is part of the United Fidelity Bank Country Series and the Center’s 2017-2018 Season sponsored by Allied Solutions.
The current Lonestar lineup features original members Richie McDonald on lead vocals, Michael Britt on lead guitar and vocals, Keech Rainwater on drums, and Dean Sams on keyboards and vocals.
Their most recent album, Never Enders, was produced by Sams and comprises 10 original songs that bring the group’s trademark sound into the contemporary arena.
