The Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center in Paducah, Ky., presents a wide array of outstanding entertainment.
Tickets are now on sale for two concerts.
MercyMe will perform Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $37-$57.
MercyMe is one of the top contemporary Christian bands in the nation. Founded in Greenville, Texas, in 1994, the group first gained mainstream recognition with the crossover single “I Can Only Imagine,” which elevated their debut album “Almost There” to certified double platinum. Since then, the group released five additional studio albums, four of which have been certified gold, and a greatest hits album.
MercyMe unleashed “The Generous Mr. Lovewell” in May, giving the band the highest chart debut of their career, bowing in at No. 3 in the nation on Billboard’s Top 200 SoundScan Chart and No. 1 on the overall Contemporary Christian SoundScan chart. The album is the No. 1 selling record at Christian bookstores, has hit No. 1 on iTunes® Christian Albums chart (No. 5 overall), and boasts the No. 1 single “All of Creation,” which continues to hold the top spot on both the Christian AC and Inspo charts after six weeks.
In 2009, Billboard magazine named MercyMe the Christian adult contemporary songs artist of the decade and their “Word of God Speak” was named Christian song of the decade.
“Get the Led Out: The American Led Zeppelin” will be presented Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $23-$43.
From the bombastic and epic to the folksy and mystical, “Get The Led Out” has captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the big concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six accomplished musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin’s studio recordings with all the bells and whistles.
“Get The Led Out” re-creates the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin never performed live.
Tickets may be purchased by calling the Carson Center Box Office or by ordering online at www.the carsoncenter.org. Fees are not included in the listed ticket prices.
The Carson Center Box Office is located at 100 Kentucky Ave. in Paducah, with hours Mondays through Fridays 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
