Don Williams Plays Pure Country at the Victory Theatre



Unlike many mainstream country acts touring today, Don Williams did not take the stage with a bang and a flash. The legendary performer had no need to. Seated on a stool and backed by an able but low-key band, Williams held the audience in the palm of his hand for well over an hour simply on the strength of his still rich and steady baritone. The “gentle giant” of country music entertained with a mix of classics and more recent songs, frequently accompanied by his appreciative audience as they sang along with their favorites. “Don Williams gives his fans exactly what they want: remarkable music that resonates with true emotions,” said General Manager Ben Bolander.

Newcomer Lyndsey Highlander opened for Williams and won over the audience with her spare but heartfelt renditions of country standards and original music.

The Victory Theatre continues a slate of summer and fall events that include The Price is Right Live! stage show October 26, and the Evansville Philharmonic’s “Cirque de la Symphonie” November 2 and 3.

The Victory Theatre is managed by VenuWorks of Evansville, LLC.
