CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Toby Keith, Rod Stewart and Bon Jovi will headline The Greenbrier Classic Concert Series from July 4 through July 7 in Lewisburg. The concert series is part of The Greenbrier Classic PGA golf-tour stop, which takes place July 2 through July 8 at The Greenbrier resort.
The announcement was made through The Greenbrier's Facebook page. Resort officials were to hold a news conference, as well.
The series kicks off Wednesday, July 4, with country music superstar Keith. On Friday, July 6, Stewart performs with special guest Lionel Richie. Bon Jovi closes out the series on Saturday, July 7.
Keith has a dozen platinum-selling albums spanning two decades and scores of hits, including "Should've Been A Cowboy," "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" and his latest, "Red Solo Cup."
Stewart, a music icon for several decades, arrived on the scene in the early 1960s and has been a mod rocker, a rock star and, more recently, a crooner of old standards, which earned him a Grammy Award in 2005. His catalog includes "Maggie May," "This Old Heart of Mine" and the disco classic "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy."
Lionel Richie was the lead singer of soul superstars The Commodores and later an R&B and pop sensation. He had a number of hits in the 1980s, including "Hello," "Dancing On The Ceiling" and "All Night Long," and has maintained a strong following internationally.
Bon Jovi, best known for songs like "Living On A Prayer," "Bad Medicine" and "It's My Life," is one of the most successful rock bands in American music, with 11 studio albums. The Grammy Award-winning band has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.
