Concert Advisory for August 20th

Dear Concert Goers:

There are many great concert venues in the NEPA area providing a diverse array of musical talent.  Some of the hottest shows that have come through this summer include chart topper Pat Benatar, Country singer Sammy Kershaw, along with Southern Rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The concert venues are also diverse in the setup and arrangement of each location.  Ranging from the outdoor amphitheater of Montage Mountain in Scranton to the classic nostalgia of the Kirby Center in Wilkes Barre.  One of my favorite venues this summer has been Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, great location with outdoor patio and center stage located on the horse track.   There is no bad seat in the house as the venue provides a friendly and accommodating atmosphere.

Now I am a Country gal loving all the good classic Honky Tonk Country to the Modern Mixture of Today and if you are like me, checkout Randy Travis on August 20th at 8pm at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.  The tickets are inexpensive with the highest only being around $20.  Can you beat that price for a legend such as Travis?!  I know that show is where I will be next Friday.

Randy Travis made his debut to the music scene in the early 1980s.  From the beginning of his career he has had many chart-topping hits such as:  “Forever And Ever Amen,” “Diggin’ Up Bones,” “If I Didn’t Have You,” “Out of My Bones,” and the latest with “Three Wooden Crosses.” *

My favorite Travis song is “Three Wooden Crosses,” the song is able to connect with all different people in various life situations.  The story told through the song is emotional and thought provoking, “Travis begs to wonder why there are only three wooden crosses and not four alongside the highway,” As the song says, “ I guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you, It’s what you leave behind you when you go.”

I am hoping Travis will grace the audience with the sweet deep melody that captures his talent.  Hope to see you at the show!

Well bloggers I am off to see what concert will be marked on my calendar next.

Keep those ears entertained,
