The Charlie Daniels Band to perform only New England concert
The Charlie Daniels Band will perform Thursday, May 29 at 8 p.m. at the Warner Theatre in Torrington in its only New England concert this spring.
Charlie Daniels is known for his many musical genres, from his Dove Award-winning gospel albums to his Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits.
Still considered a “road warrior” at age 76, Daniels has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career, and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need.
Hits include “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “Long-Haired Country Boy,” “Uneasy Rider” and “Simple Man.”
Lynard Skynyrd tribute
Opening act will be the Artimus Pyle Band. Artimus Pyle was a member of Lynard Skynyrd, where his powerful and distinctive double bass drumming helped define the legendary Skynyrd sound. The band performs many well-known hits such as “Freebird” to “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The show is presented by Infinity Hall. Tickets range in price from $36 to $86. For tickets, call the Warner box office at 860-489-7180 or go to www.warnertheatre.org.
