Bellamy Brothers coming to town

This Saturday night,Fayetteville welcomes the classic American pop and country duo, The Bellamy Brothers. That night, they will treat fans to a staple of over 14 no. 1 hit songs and strong melodies from their catalog spanning the 70s to today. Opening act is the local band “Sons –n- Britches”.

The Bellamy Brothers were influenced early in their career while touring with R&B acts like Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd and Little Anthony and the Imperials. Later, the duo benefitted from time spent around the blossoming country/rock scene in Atlanta. After moving to the West Coast in the early 70s, the Brothers developed their own sound and scored perhaps the biggest hit of their career in 1976 with “Let Your Love Flow.” That song reached No.1 on the U.S. and European pop charts.

The Brothers continued to produce No.1 hit after hit in the years that followed on the country charts, including “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” “Sugar Daddy,” “Dancin’ Cowboys,” “Redneck Girl,” “Old Hippie,” and many more. The critical accolades they continue to receive keep them consistently touring to growing audiences worldwide.
Good seats still remain, and range from $15 - $25. This is the last concert of the summer concert series, but stay tuned for a special concert announcement coming soon for an event in October.

Tickets to all shows are available via the website at SouthernGroundAmp.com and at the Historic Courthouse in Downtown Fayetteville.
The Southern Ground Amphitheater is owned by the Downtown Development Authority and managed by the Main Street Tourism Association of Fayetteville.
