Hello, Dolly 

‘Vintage’ Parton at Alltel Arena on Tuesday.

  • 'VINTAGE' Parton: At Alltel.

Country music star Dolly Parton brings her “Vintage” tour to Alltel Arena at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6. Parton is touring in support of her new album, “Those Were the Days,” a collection of 1960s and ’70s folk-rock covers done in Parton’s infectious bluegrass style.

Alltel Arena will set the show up in a theater style. Tickets are $43 and $58 and available through all Ticketmaster outlets (www.ticketmaster.com, Harvest Foods stores, 975-7575) or the arena box office, 975-9000.

House of Blues is producing Parton’s latest tour, which has garnered critical raves for Parton’s stellar showmanship and the mix of her classic songs with ones from the latest Sugar Hill Records release, including “Blowin’ in the Wind” and the John Lennon hit “Imagine.”

Parton, in a press release, says, “Those songs now, it’s like they were written the day before yesterday. Whatever war it may be, someone is going off to die somewhere. I am not protesting anything. I am not political. But I am a patriot and peace-loving.” Parton also recently told the Associated Press, “People who know me will know I’ve chosen these songs to really kind of uplift and to give hope, like they were written for at the time.”

Other songs on the new release include Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” Johnny Mathis’ ballad “Twelfth of Never” and Tommy James’ “Crimson and Clover.”

Parton has won two Grammys and countless other awards. She began this latest tour in August.

The Grascals, a hot new Nashville act with a well-received debut album, will open the show.
