The legendary Marshall Tucker Band will be in concert in Hannibal this Friday night at Clemens Field in a fundraiser marking the 100th anniversary of the Hannibal YMCA.

Tickets are $37 for Field Seating and $27 for Grandstand Seating and are available online, at the YMCA or by calling the YMCA at 573-221-0586. The gates open at 6pm and the concert begins at 7pm with up and coming Black Jack Billy opening things up.

 

The Marshall Tucker Band, currently on tour across the United States and Canada, got its start back in 1973 in Spartanburg, South Carolina and has seen a few changes over the years in the band but the founding member and lead singer, Doug Gray, still leads the band.

In 1973 they got their big break in opening for the Allman Brothers Band and the rest is history.  Their signature hits include “Heard it in a Love Song”, “Fire on the Mountain” and “Can’t You See”.  Recently, the band suffered a loss when band member Stuart Swanlund passed away on August 4th.

Hope you don’t miss this opportunity Friday night and also help out the Hannibal YMCA at the same time.
