An Evening with Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

Last season’s special event with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt sold out so quickly, would-be ticket buyers had to be turned away months before the concert. So, when Lyle was invited back to Aggieland as part of his summer tour, his answer was yes! This very special season opening concert on August 27 will feature Lyle with His Large Band in the 2,500-seat Rudder Auditorium. A singer, composer, and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and tickets start at $26. Visit http://mscopas.org/lyle_lovett.html for more information and to purchase tickets.
