Lovett Auditorium will be the venue of yet another world-renowned artist. The Gaither Vocal Band will perform in Lovett Auditorium at 6 p.m. on March 14 in Lovett Auditorium.
The Vocal Band was created when Gaither and a few other musicians were playing music together before one of his shows. They decided to play what they were singing for the audience, and the audience went crazy. Ever since then, the Gaither Vocal Band has been spreading the gospel through ear pleasing harmonies and powerhouse vocals, according to the Gaither music website.
The group is made up of Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, David Phelps, Adam Crabb and Todd Suttles.
Gaither has performed gospel music since the late 60s. He has won six Grammys and several Gospel Music Awards. He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1983.
“The artistic history and creative achievement they represent still commands an undeniable respect despite the diminishments of time and reversals of age and experience that the returning members bring with them,” said a reviewer of the Gaither Vocal Band on AveryFineLine, a gospel music review website.
There are various options for tickets for the concert. Buying VIP platinum tickets will get concertgoers seats in the first, second and third rows closest to the stage. These tickets cost $68.50.
The Artist Circle tickets are $37.50 and will be seats in the first half of the lower level.
Reserved seats are the back half of the lower level and the entire balcony, priced at $27.50. Other prices include a senior ticket (ages 60+) and child ticket (ages 2-12), at $24.50.
There is also a group discount price, that is $22.50, which is the same as getting two free tickets. Tickets are available to purchase through Ticketmaster.
The Gaither Vocal Band is a long-awaited act for Lovett Auditorium and tickets might go quickly.
“It’s been one of our most requested groups,” said Shelley Todd, director of the CFSB Center. “Our area has a lot of older fans of the band, as well as church groups that want to see them. They have never played in our area so we’re really excited to have them performing here with all the requests we’ve had for them.”
The Gaither Vocal Band will make their western Kentucky debut on March 14.
