On Saturday, Southern Ground Amphitheater in Fayetteville will feature the late-60s Grammy Award winning band, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap. Opening for Gary Puckett is Atlanta-based group, R&B, Inc.

Between 1968-1970, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap had six consecutive gold records. This west-coast, American pop band sold more records than any other artist in 1968 and had the ladies swooning to such classics as “Young Girl,” “Lady Willpower, “ and their version of the Bee Gees hit, “To Love Somebody.”

Shortly before 1970, they went on to record two other Top 20 hits including “Over You” and “Don’t Give in to Him.”

A few tickets still remain, and range from $15 - $25. The next show will be The Charlie Daniels Band on Saturday, August 9.

Tickets to all shows are available via the website at SouthernGroundAmp.com and at the Historic Courthouse in Downtown Fayetteville.

The Southern Ground Amphitheater is owned by the Downtown Development Authority and managed by the Main Street Tourism Association of Fayetteville.
