Vintage Southern rock group The Marshall Tucker Band will perform at the Crossroads Arena in Corinth on Nov. 8.
“After continued requests from Crossroads Arena fans and friends, we are bringing a Southern rock show to Corinth,” Crossroads Arena General Manager Tammy Genovese said in a statement.
Tickets go on sale Aug. 3.
Genovese added that it will be a “fun night for Corinth and surrounding area.”
The Marshall Tucker Band formed in the early 1970s and has many well-known songs including, “Heard It in a Love Song,” “Can’t You See” and “Fire on the Mountain.”
While they have been referred to as one of the original Southern rock groups, the band also plays jazz, blues and country.
The band was founded in Spartanburg, S.C. and opened shows for the Allman Brothers. The Marshall Tucker Band influenced other successful groups such as Alabama, Travis Tritt and the Kentucky Headhunters.
“Huge local band” Prowler will be the opening act, Genovese noted.
