Information on each show is as follows:

Corey Smith
440 Foundry Pavilion at The Classic Center
Friday, August 24, 2018 
| 8 p.m.
The way Corey Smith sees it, he owes a debt to his fans. And it’s one he is determined to repay with his 10th album, While the Gettin’ Is Good. The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the singer-songwriter, a wildly popular touring artist who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall. The result is Smith’s most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the investment made by the fans who have supported him since his first album in 2003.

Brian Regan
The Classic Center Theatre
Sunday, September 23, 2018 
| 7 p.m.
Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theatres nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. Brian Regan can turn the most mundane situations- like going to the eye doctor to get fitted for glasses or trying to decide how many fig newtons to eat in one sitting- into side-splitting stand-up material.

Rock of Ages
The Classic Center Theatre
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 
| 7:30 p.m.
Broadway’s Best Party is turning up the volume to ten! Nominated for five Tony Awards®, ROCK OF AGES captures the iconic era of 1980s Hollywood. Featuring the music of hit bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, Whitesnake, and more, this Tenth Anniversary production will have you ready to rock!
