Email this Post Print this Post

Plano’s Concerts in the Park series will head musically south of the Mason/Dixon line when the Atlanta Rhythm Section hits town on Saturday, October 3 at 7:30p.m.

This music series is being presented in Plano’s Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, 2801 E. Spring Creek Parkway. Tickets are available at http://planostages.tix.com.

Along with their contemporaries, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Atlanta Rhythm Section were considered legitimate successors to the Allman Brothers as kings of regional rock in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Skillful musicianship and strong
songwriting has always been great strengths of this band.

With 1978’s “Champagne Jam,” the band reached its commercial zenith. Top 20 hits over the years have included “So Into You,” “Imaginary Lover,” “Outside Woman Blues,” “Spooky,” “Homesick” and “I’m Not Gonna Let It Bother Me,” among others. To sample their music, visit www.myspace.com/arsatlantarhythmsection.

Everything about the Concerts in the Park is designed to be smooth and easy. The public is welcome to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to enjoy the show in comfort. Picnic baskets and coolers are allowed, as well. Alcohol consumption is permitted by those 21 years of age and up. Parking is free. No pets, please – only service animals are allowed.

Admission to “Southern Rock Night” is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (60 years and up), and $8 for children 12 and younger. Kids age three and younger are admitted free.
