Tickets will go on sale through the Fox Theatre box office, through Ticketmaster (Ph: 800-745-3000), and online at olympiaentertainment.com this Friday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. Ticket prices are $38.50, $58.50, and $68.50.
A Prairie Home Companion performed at the Fox Theatre last February, with Detroit soul singers Bettye LaVette and Sir Mack Rice as featured guests. That show sold out in only one week.
This year's A Prairie Home Companion show, on May 7, will feature live performances and comical skits by Keillor, the Prairie Home cast, and special guests (who have yet to be announced). Keillor will weave local humor into the show and share his signature monologue, "The News From Lake Wobegon," with Detroit audiences.
