NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 10, 2017) – Groundbreaking country music icon Tanya Tucker continues to dazzle audiences across the U.S. and Canada as she returns to the states after 15 shows in 21 days, completing her longest North American run in decades. Tucker performed for 11,000 fans with an average ticket price of $52.00.
The CMA-award winning artist and recent ACM Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award honoree impressed reviewers and buyers:
“Classic guitar twangs, matched by Tucker’s incredible rasp fueled register joined together for a match made in heaven, leaving each audience member feeling like they had been personally serenaded by the woman herself. Tucker regularly chatted with the audience and cracked jokes..”
–Savannah Bagshaw, Kelowna Now
“Legend in the house! Thanks to Tanya Tucker and her A+ band and crew for a great day at Club Regent Event Centre from load in to load out. Our team and the sold out venue of fans can’t wait to see her back again. Always a witty firecracker!
