Country rockers Pure Prairie League to hit High Point Theatre Stage on Thursday, Oct. 30

Leave a comment

Country rockers Pure Prairie League took their name from an obscure 19th century Temperance Union mentioned in the 1939 film Dodge City. But this distinctly American band, with its 40-year career and long line of top hits, escaped obscurity long ago. Although fan favorites right out of the gate it took a number of years before Pure Prairie League, formed by vocalist/guitar player Craig Fuller, had its first hit. But it couldn’t have picked a better way to start, and “Aimee” not only put PPL on the map, but went on to become perhaps the most well-known and beloved country rock songs of all time, according to the High Point Theatre website.

Catch Pure Prairie League at the High Point Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30. Tickets are $40 for Front Orchestra Reserved and $35 for Rear Orchestra/ Balcony Reserved.

Call the High Point Theatre Box Office during regular business hours: Monday- Friday, 12 noon -5 p.m. (EST), 336-887-3001.
