  • Alan Jackson is scheduled to play at the Arkansas Music Pavilion Sept. 14.

Don't rock the jukebox ya'll, play a country song, because the Walton Arts Center just announced that Alan Jackson will play at the Arkansas Music Pavilion in Fayetteville on Sept. 14. That's a Friday, so you know it's gonna be a boot-scootin' big time up there.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. and they're $35-$102.

The news elicited some excitement on the WAC Facebook page, but also prompted a request for some more rock from one Dawn Williams, who wrote "Awesome... but can we PLEASE get some rock 'n roll artists booked as well! We're not all country here in NW Arkansas!! Great White, Winger, Tesla, Enuff 'Znuff, Night Ranger, Cinderella, Foreigner, John Corabi, Kix, Poison, Def Leppard, Scorpions... they are all touring. Just say'n..."

A lineup with Night Ranger, Scorpions and Def Leppard would be incredible if improbable, but hey, it never hurts to ask. Until that magical day, the AMP will tide over rock fans with Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Aug. 19 and The Avett Brothers on Oct. 16.

The AMP's country offerings continue Aug. 17, with the Taste of Country Festival, featuring Miranda Lambert, The Pistol Annies, Randy Houser, Chris Knight, Adam Hood and Amanda Cramer

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
