Bossier City’s (insert new name here) entertainment arena is going into a major musical throwback mode in 2020, booking classic rock bands — or what’s left of them — and Cher.
The so-to-be-renamed CenturyLink Center will host Cher on March 10, 2020. The 73-year-old has been on the stage since 1963, formerly with her ex-husband, now deceased Sonny. The pop icon and original fashionista draws an eclectic crowd and is the only artist to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in six consecutive decades, from the 1960s to the 2010s.
Then, the arena takes a hard left turn to classic rock, bringing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour” to town on March 21, 2020. It’s the third year of the band’s farewell tour, and special guest Travis Tritt will join them here in Bossier City.
Lynyrd Skynyrd has been around almost as long as Cher, with a 40 year tenure and 60 albums under their belts.
Journey will return to the Center With No Name on Saturday, August 29. They’ll bring The Pretenders along for the ride.
And then, on Oct. 14, 2020, the latest version of the reunited Doobie Brothers will take the stage at the Your Name Goes Here Center. They’re calling the show their “50th Anniversary Tour” and this time around Michael McDonald will join Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, and John McFee for the first time in 25 years.
Doobie fans will either rejoice or reject that news.
