Country group Lonestar plays Chumash Casino
Multi-platinum country music group Lonestar will play the Chumash Casino, Thursday, Sept. 9.
The Texas-bred band, known for merging its country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and has officially reunited with original lead singer Richie McDonald. The band’s four original members—keyboardist Dean Sams, drummer Keech Rainwater, lead guitarist Michael Britt, and McDonald—performed their first concert together overseas earlier this year and have just embarked on a U.S. summer tour.
The group’s hits include “No News,” “Come Crying to Me,” and “Amazed,” a No. 1 country and No. 1 pop hit that kicked the doors open for country music at pop radio in the ’90s.
Tickets are $25, $35 and $45. For tickets and more information, call 1-800-Chumash.
