BlackHawk, The Outlaws in concert

Sep 04, 2014

Multi-platinum-record-selling group BlackHawk joins southern rock/country rock band The Outlaws as the 2014-15 Sondheim Artist Series opens with the Rockin’ Country Tour at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.

BlackHawk exploded on to the country music landscape in 1993 with its debut smash hit, “Goodbye Says it All.” With a dozen top 10 hits including two No. 1 hits to its credit and album sales of more than 7 million records, BlackHawk continues to carve out its place in music history.

Known for its country hits, “Every Once in a While,” “I’m Not Strong Enough to Say No,” “Like There Ain’t No Yesterday,” and “That’s Just About Right,” BlackHawk continues to fill venues with its classics and to introduce new music to its fans.

For The Outlaws, it has always been about the music. For 40 years, the southern rock legends celebrated triumphs, endured tragedies and survived legal nightmares to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: It’s about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. It’s about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by its past. But most of all, it’s about pride.

The Rockin’ Country Tour featuring BlackHawk and The Outlaws together on the Sondheim stage will be opened up by Fairfield natives Steve and Michaela McLain beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Outlaws will perform first, followed by BlackHawk.

Tickets to The Rockin’ Country Tour featuring BlackHawk and The Outlaws are $32 for Zone 1, $28 for Zone 2, $22 for Zone 3 and $15 for Zone 4, youth and students. Tickets are available at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center Ticket Office, 472-2787 and online at www.FairfieldACC.com.

The convention center is offering discounted ticket “Pick Packages” and season tickets and has extended the $15 youth price to area college students, with identification.
