I believe the only people who don't love Al Green are the people who have never heard Al Green.
For the rest of us, there's good news.
The fine folks at the Westobou Festival have confirmed that Al Green will close the festival with a concert Saturday, Sept. 25 at Bell Auditorium. Ticket prices have not been set yet, but they are scheduled to go on sale July 1.
I was fortunate enough to see Green perform last year. I'm here to tell you, Augusta is in for a treat. He still has an incredible voice, incredible presence and, of course, incredible songs. I'm posting his 2005 Kennedy Center Honors performance of the classic Let's Stay Together.
