This concert announcement coincidentally came a few hours after we posted our list of musicians who turn back time: Merle Haggard (age 73) and Kris Kristofferson (age 74) will be playing at the Fabulous Fox on March 9 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $48, $58 and $68, and are on sale Friday, January 14, at 10 a.m. Haggard was a treat when he opened for Dylan a few years ago at the Fox; this show promises to be a can't-miss.
