The MSU Riley Center announced its lineup of show for the 2009-2010 season. It brings a variety of entertainment to the historic theatre.
The premiere Sept. 3 features Mississippi’s own B.B. King, nationally recognized as the “King of the Blues” and as a musician whose talents are renowned across nations and over decades.
“It is a great honor to have B.B. King perform here,” said executive director Dennis Sankovich. “We take great pride in having a living legend open our fourth season and look forward to significant attention for what is sure to be an incredibly memorable performance in our historic, fully restored Grand Opera House in his home state of Mississippi.”
Other artists include The Spinners, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Los Lobos, and
a live performance of Harper Lee’s "To Kill a Mockingbird,".
The Riley Center is offering first-time season ticket buyers $100 off their first season ticket order. This is a one-time special promotion. It continues to offer a “Pick 5” package, allowing patrons to select five or more shows receiving a slightly-lowered price and securing seating ahead of individual ticket buyers when they purchase at one time. “Pick 5” packages go on sale July 27.
