BENNETTSVILLE — The Marlboro Civic Center Foundation is celebrating its 20th anniversary this season and will bring country music star Clint Black to its stage on Thursday, Feb. 25.
Tickets for the show go on sale next month, with civic center members able to reserve seats on Dec. 1 and tickets available to the general public starting Dec. 8.
Promoters say Black’s career is one of the most storied in modern music. He surged to stardom in 1989, reaching No. 1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-platinum debut, “Killin’ Time.”
He followed that with the triple-platinum “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” and then a string of platinum and gold albums throughout the 1990s. Black wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three dozen chart hits, including “A Better Man,” “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Summer’s Comin’,” “Like the Rain,” and “Nothin’ But the Taillights,” part of a catalog that produced 22 No. 1 singles.
Along the way, Black has sold more than 20 million records worldwide and racked up 57 charted singles, 31 top-10 hits and 22 No. 1 smashes. His recordings have led to honors from the Country Music Association, The Academy of Country Music, The Grammys and the American Music Awards, as well as membership in the cast of the Grand Ole Opry and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Built in 1917 as “The Opera House,” the facility was transformed with a $1.2 million renovation into the present 320-seat Marlboro Civic Center and reopened to the public on Nov. 19, 1995.
All seats for Black’s Feb. 25 performance are reserved and tickets are $50.
The theater box office will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays beginning Dec. 1 for members and Dec. 8 for the general public. For more information, call 843-454-9496.
