In addition to the regular season, the Clay Center will also offer two add-on shows. The first is 10th season "American Idol" winner and country singer Scotty McCreery on Feb. 23. The second will be blues legend Buddy Guy with young music sensation Jonny Lang on Feb. 24.
Noticeably absent from the Clay Center's spring schedule are 1970s and 1980s pop acts, which have been a staple of Clay Center schedules for years.
Rosano said they weren't consciously avoiding booking the popular retro acts. It's just that they hadn't locked in one they felt was a good fit for the Clay Center. He said they expect to have at least one '80s act to announce in the next few months.
Season-ticket packages are on sale now. Based on seating, they are $89.25 for area C, $126.75 for area B or $160.75 for area A.
Current season ticketholders have until 5 p.m. Jan. 20 to renew and receive priority seating. They also have the opportunity to buy tickets to Scotty McCreery and Buddy Guy/Jonny Lang before they go on sale to the general public.
Tickets for Scotty McCreery are $30, $35 and $40 with premier seating, located in the orchestra pit, for $45. Tickets for Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang are $30, $45 and $55 with premier seating available for $75.
