Calumet Theatre reschedules country star Joe Nichols performance
CALUMET — Country superstar Joe Nichols performance at the historic Calumet Theatre has been rescheduled from Aug. 14 to Saturday, Nov. 14. The date change is necessitated by current State of Michigan Safe Start Phase 5 restrictions, which currently allows only 25% audience capacity for venues like the Calumet Theatre. Advance ticket sales have already far exceeded those limitations, and are still selling at a rapid clip heading towards a near to complete sell-out performance. All tickets purchased for the original show date will be honored for the Nov. 14 performance.
Joe Nichols is a certified hit maker, racking up six Number Ones and eight Top 10s, including chart-topping modern classics like “Brokenheartsville”, “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off”, along with “Yeah” and “Sunny and 75”. He’s a three-time Grammy nominee, an ACM, Billboard, CMA, and CMT Award winner.
Growing up around friends who were into anything but country, he was different. Nichols was pulled in by the realness of singers like Merle Haggard and Marty Robbins, Don Williams, Keith Whitley and George Strait, and that connection would inform his whole career. “Hopefully the stuff we’re doing lasts a lot longer than today’s typical country record,” he says. “But I think the irony is that retro sounds are actually what’s fresh and new right now. All we had to do was what felt natural.”
Special Opening Act: Chad Borgen & The Collective
This performance sponsored by Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground with additional support provided by the Michigan Council for the Performing Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment For the Arts.
