Little River Band at The Villages July 10

This Saturday, July 10 brings American Top 40 hit makers, The Little River Band, to The Villages Amphitheater in Fayetteville. In their heyday from 1977 to 1982, the group, originally from Australia, cranked out 13 hit songs that played on eight-tracks all across America.

Their smooth harmonies and strong melodies made them the soft rock kings of the late 70’s. This is one of those shows that will have audience members slow dancing in the aisles and singing along to every song in the set. Standout hits include “Reminiscing,” “Cool Change,”,“Lady,” and “Lonesome Loser.”

Amphitheater Director, Brian Wismer commented on the group, “The Little River Band is one of those groups with a ton of hits that you just didn’t know were theirs. The audience will be saying ‘I didn’t know they did this song!’ after every song. We are especially excited to have them in Fayetteville,” said Wismer.

Some tickets still remain and are available at the Train Depot and also via the website, www.VillagesAmphitheater.com.

Also appearing at the Villages later this summer are The Family Stone on July 31 and Grand Funk Railroad on Aug. 28. The 2010 concert series is presented by Mercedes-Benz of South Atlanta.

The Villages Amphitheater is owned by the Downtown Development Authority and managed by the Main Street Tourism Association of Fayetteville.
