PITTSBURG — Travis Tritt is no stranger to country music radio. In the early ‘90s, he made a name for himself with honky tonk hits such as “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” but Friday, Tritt is coming to Pittsburg to slow things down.
“An Evening with Travis Tritt” at Pittsburg’s Memorial Auditorium will be an intimate performance. Tritt will perform Friday at Memorial Auditorium with the focus on his voice and his guitar.
While Tritt will perform some of his biggest hits — including “Best of Intentions” and “It’s a Great Day to be Alive” — the show will also feature personal stories, discussions on his musical influences and more.
The event marks a milestone for Memorial Auditorium Director Chris Patterson. Patterson took over as director last October, and said one of his goals was to bring more live music entertainment to the venue.
“In the coming months, I look forward to collaborating with Pittsburg businesses and groups to grow the live entertainment options at this special venue,” he said.
“An Evening with Travis Tritt” will be the first of such events under Patterson’s direction.
He’s no stranger to live music, working spent 12 years as a tour manager for acts like ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Luther Vandross, Deep Purple, Sinead O’Connor and more. He has also worked as a booking director, independent promoter and more.
Friday’s concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets range between $45 and $55. Seats are still available, but only a handful of seats remain on the main floor. Tickets can be purchased online at www.memorialauditorium.org, by phone at 620-231-7827, or in person at the Memorial Auditorium box office, 503 N. Pine St., Pittsburg.
