October 6....Shenandoah in Concert -
When country music lovers talk about the greatest groups in the genre, Shenandoah is always at the forefront of any discussion. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the Grammy winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. It all began when the guys got back together to perform a benefit concert for a friend battling cancer. “We saw how folks reacted,” Raybon says of the response to their reunion. “And then Jerry Phillips, son of legendary Sun Records producer Sam Phillips, said ‘You guys need to make a run at this. People still love what you do. You can tell by the reaction.” Shenandoah recorded nine studio albums and placed 26 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The boys from Muscle Shoals have left a potent legacy at country radio with such enduring hits as “Ghost in This House,” “I Want to Be Loved Like That”, “Rock My Baby,” “Janie Baker’s Love Slave,” “If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)”, written by Raybon and McGuire and “Her Leavin's Been a Long Time Comin,” in which former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Troy Aikman was in the video (also written by McGuire). Reserved seats; Floor, first 5 rows $35; remainder of floor $30; standard balcony $25. Purchase by visiting cactustheater.com or call 762-3233. Doors open at 6:45; show at 7:30 pm.

October 7….Tribute to Rock Royalty: Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Bob Seger - In the pantheon of rock 'n' roll, few performers approach the level of all-around individual artistry achieved by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Bob Seger. Each of these artists began their storied careers in the early ’70s....achieved solid gold status in the ’80s....and were elevated to rock royalty in the ’90s and into the new millennium.
Today, we pay tribute to these great artists - known not only for their legendary live performances - but for the indelible mark they've each left as songwriters and storytellers. In this Cactus tribute - anchored by The Rhythm Machine - we'll trace the careers of these three rock pillars. You'll hear Bruce Springsteen gems "Born To Run" and "The Rising"; sing along to Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and "Refugee"; and recount the timeless appeal of the Bob Seger masterpieces "Night Moves" and "Turn The Page"....plus many, many more.

October 7 - 8….Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Presents Beethoven “Eroica” - The first of two exceptional classical composers featured in this robustly beautiful program, Beethoven’s Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43 depicts the great composer’s version of the Greek figure and his interaction with humans on earth through contrasting somber and energetic sounds. Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite is one of the most beloved and iconic selections in the classical music repertoire due to its gorgeous storytelling of a pioneering couple’s wedding. Finally, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3was inspired by the ideals of the French Revolution and was originally dedicated to Napoléon Bonaparte, but after the leader declared himself emperor in 1804, Beethoven violently scratched out the dedication, leaving holes in the paper. The heroic undertones and beautiful melody will conclude this first masterworks concert in ideal fashion. To reserve tickets visit www.lubbocksymphony.org.
