Dwight Yoakam and The Cadillac Three
Due to structural issues, the Dwight Yoakam concert, formerly scheduled to take place at the Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion in Portsmouth, has been moved to Chrysler Hall. The City of Portsmouth will keep the venue closed for the entire remainder of the year while the roof undergoes work. Previously purchased tickets to this concert will be honored at the door. Visit www.pavilionconcerts.com for more information regarding the relocation.
First becoming popular in the mid-80’s, Dwight Yoakam has recorded more than twenty albums and compilations, charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and sold more than 25 million records. He has recorded five Billboard #1 albums, 12 gold albums, and nine platinum albums, including the triple-platinum “This Time.”
