“In a year of rebranding and rebirth for the Lincoln Amphitheatre and during the State of Indiana’s bicentennial year, it’s fitting that we have such an iconic American band perform at the Lincoln Amphitheatre,” said Marc Steczyk, Lincoln Amphitheatre’s director. “Tickets are almost sold out for this show, so I would suggest getting your tickets soon – this is going to be a very special night!”

The Marshall Tucker Band is making its stop in Lincoln City as part of its “Long Hard Ride” tour. One of the major southern rock bands of the ‘70s and ‘80s, The Marshall Tucker Band was formed in Spartanburg, S.C., in 1971. Over the years, their style has combined rock, country and jazz, and they are best known for their largest hits “Can’t You See” and “Heard It in a Love Song.” For additional information about The Marshall Tucker Band, visit www.marshalltucker.com.

The next performance at the Lincoln Amphitheatre will be on Saturday, Sept. 3, as the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra brings its 72-instrumentalist ensemble to the Amphitheatre’s performance stage on Labor Day weekend for a special patriotic presentation. Their performance will include selections from their coming season, an Armed Forces Salute, the “1812 Overture” with cannons, “Ashokan Farewell” with historian Gerald King reading the Col. James Shanklin letters and Dean Dorrell as Abe Lincoln reading the Gettysburg Address.

The evening will open with a performance by the Celebration Singers.
