Two high-profile acts – one a legendary county music singer and the other a popular actor and comedian – have scheduled performances at Bell Auditorium this year.
Country Music Hall of Fame member Loretta Lynn will take the stage at 8 p.m. on Aug. 23. Lynn, whose music career has lasted more than five decades, has a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award, among other honors. Her songs have covered a variety of topics and generated controversy over her prolific career, addressing divorce, the difficulties of blue-collar life, war and substance abuse.
Actor, producer and writer Kevin James will stop at the auditorium on Oct. 29, performing the stand-up comedy that led to roles in TV and movies. James starred in the sitcom The King of Queens and co-starred with Will Smith in the 2005 hit comedy movie Hitch.
Tickets for both performances will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. They can be purchased online at georgialinatix.com, by phone at (877) 428-4849 and at the Champion’s Box Office at James Brown Arena.
