Reichhold Center Will Present Al Green in Concert

The Reichhold Center for the Arts is celebrating its 30th anniversary with one of the biggest names in R&B. Al Green perform will perform at 8 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 11.
Mixing classic soul with neo-soul, Green is still in true form on his new Billboard hit CD "Lay It Down," featuring collaborations with Corinne Bailey Rae and John Legend. Leaving his gospel days behind, Green returns to the soul circuit with his all-time classics: "Let's Stay Together," "Tired of Being Alone" and "Love and Happiness."
The year 2008 has been great for Green. "Lay It Down" became his first album ever to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard charts. The R&B legend also received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards.
For many years, he focused on gospel music and preaching, but he never fully left his soul beginnings.
In 1995, Green was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2002, the nine-time Grammy Award winner received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Since early 2008, he has taken his masterful musical collection on successful tours throughout North America and Europe.
Tickets are $48, $68 and $98, and are available at Modern Music, UVI Bookstore, V.I. Bridal & Tuxedo, Urban Threadz, Essentric Shoe Boutique, Island Video (Nisky), Home Again (Red Hook) and the Reichhold Center Box Office at 693-1559.
