Temptations, Colvin headline PAC lineup
Francis Marion University’s Performing Arts Center is offering some real temptations in its 2019-20 entertainment season.
That includes the actual Temptations, who’ll bring their famous sound and style to the PAC on March 7. Also on the schedule recently announced by PAC Director Bud Simmons are Grammy winners Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin, fellow Grammy winner and songwriting legend Jimmy Webb, the red-hot Texas Tenors, and Gin Blossoms.
Simmons said additional shows may be added to the season at a later date.
Tickets for all six shows went on sale July 1.
Ticket prices range from $37 to $57 for mid-tier tickets. For a limited time, patrons can purchase a special “Tempting Trio” ticket for just $99. The Tempting Trio offer is available through July 15.
The Temptations are an undeniable music icon. They are on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Artists of all time, are the recipients of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Their timeless music has produced platinum albums and chart-topping hits across the decades, and remains as relevant today as it’s ever been. The new jukebox musical “Ain’t Too Proud,” based on the Temptations’ story, opened on Broadway in March and was nominated for 11 Tony Awards. It won the Tony for Best Choreography.
Singer Shawn Colvin, who’ll be at the PAC on April 25, stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. Colvin has won three Grammy Awards and been nominated for six others.
The Texas Tenors, the most successful music group in the history of America's Got Talent!, will bring their inspiring three-part harmonies to the PAC on Feb. 15.
