JOLIET – The Rialto Square Theatre has lined up another big name in country music as it begins booking shows again.
Ronnie Milsap, who was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014, will perform Dec. 2. Milsap is the second show booked since VenuWorks took over management of the Rialto on Sept. 1.
The Rialto three weeks ago announced that rising country star Kacey Musgraves will perform Dec. 15.
“They’re both Christmas shows,” interim General Manager Timothy Berry said. “We’re bringing in the holiday spirit.”
Milsap has had 35 No. 1 hits and received six Grammy awards for best male country vocal performance. He reached the height of his popularity in the 1970s and 1980s.
Tickets go on sale Friday, and prices range from $34 to $69.
Berry said tickets for the Musgraves show are going “extremely well. We’re over two-thirds of the way sold on that. There are still plenty of good seats left.”
Tickets are available at the Rialto box office or by calling 815-726-6600. They can also be bought from Ticketmaster at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
