Coming here: Alabama Shakes, Sept. 6 at the AMP

Alabama Shakes


Soulful southern rock band Alabama Shakes are coming to the Arkansas Music Pavilion for a show on Friday, Sept. 6.

For those not familiar, the band has experienced one of the fastest rises to rock stardom in recent memory, blowing up seemingly overnight even before the release of their stellar debut full-length album, Boys & Girls.

Since the record came out in April 2012, however, the band has absolutely exploded. Instead of performing for hundreds in the watering holes of hometown Athens, Ala., the band now plays for crowds of thousands at venues like Red Rocks. And instead of delivering mail at the local post office, charismatic singer Brittany Howard is belting out “The Weight” during a Levon Helm tribute at the Grammy’s with the likes Elton John, Mavis Staples and T-Bone Burnett.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday, June 28. Cost is $38.50 in advance or $41.50 the day of the show. To purchase, call 479-443-5600 or visit Fly Golden Eagle will open the show.
