Be part of a special tribute to the man considered to be the greatest country singer of all time - George Jones.

His music continues to inspire artists of all genres. Award-winning singer/songerwriter Duane Steele and his band will take you on a journey of Jones’ life through stories and songs. Steele will sing the hits of Jones that spanned five decades including his duets with Tammy Wynette to the No.1 country song of all time “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. You’ll also hear the stories of Jones’ life which echoed the country songs he sang - filled with success, failure, hard-drinking and heartbreak. The Legend of George Jones is a must-see for Jones fans and country fans alike.

Juno award-winning recording artist Clayton Bellamy will take you through an evening of songs and stories from one of the greatest singer/songwriters who ever lived: Tom Petty. Petty sold millions of records and topped the charts with
songs like “Learning To Fly, “American Girl” and “Don’t Come Around Here”. From The Heartbreakers, The Travelling Willburys, to his solo material and collaborations with Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty’s
music has moved generations of listeners. The Legendary Life of Tom Petty is a fully immersive concert and multi- media experience that will take you on a journey through his incredible story, starting with his humble beginnings in Florida to becoming one of the greatest rock and roll icons of all time. Petty’s life is told through powerful music and more powerful stories from the heart-warming to the heartbreaking, delivered passionately and expertly by Bellamy
and his talented band. There is simply no better way to experience the music of Tom Petty live! A must-see for Petty fans and rock fans alike.
