Reba is about to take the stage in Charleston on Thursday | WCHS Network | News • Sports • Business
CHARLESTON, W. Va. – One of the most successful female artists in history, Reba, will be in Charleston Thursday night for a performance.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center (CCCC). Veronica Ratcliff, director of marketing and sales at CCCC, told 580-WCHS there were fewer than 100 tickets left for the show Wednesday afternoon.
“I think you’re going to go from his older fan to his younger fan here. It will be a wide range of ages to see this show. Reba spans generations,” Ratcliff said of Reba’s fan base.
Reba has sold over 56 million albums worldwide and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. According to the CCCC, she has won 15 American Music Awards; 13 ACM awards; 9 People’s Choice Awards; 7 CMA awards; 2 GRAMMY awards; an ACM Career Achievement Honor; and is one of only four artists in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.
Ratcliff said his shows always bring energy.
“It’s high energy. She has been playing for quite some time and has a whole catalog. When you do a little research and look at the setlist, I don’t think there’s going to be a song that you haven’t heard, don’t know the lyrics to, or can’t sing,” Ratcliff said.
Ratcliff added that it was the first time Reba had returned to Charleston in 20 years. Last time she was here she was co-headlining with Brooks & Dunn.
Ratcliff encouraged anyone interested in tickets to stop by the CCCC box office or buy online.
This concert comes less than a week since the CCCC hosted Keith Urban.
