Al Green comes to Charleston

Al Green"An Intimate Evening with Al Green" will be making one of his few stops in the South at the Charleston Music Hall on Saturday (July 26).

The American gospel and soul music singer recently released a new album Lay It Down. Rolling Stone gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars, and had this to say:
Lay It Down sticks to the classic Seventies template: slow-boiling ballads, awash in strings and brass, with Green cooing oaths of fidelity and hinting at more immediate satisfactions.

The Post and Courier reminds us that this isn't the first Green's been here:
Green headlined ChazzFest, a local popular music festival held at Family Circle Cup Stadium on Daniel Island in September 2006, and played to rave reviews. He drew a large, diverse crowd and, by all accounts, gave them all they came to get.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m.

Get tickets at Etix, prices range from $75 to $200.
