AUTOMATIC ENTERTAINMENT – The legendary Pointer Sisters will perform at the Columbia Theatre on May 21. The 7:30 p.m. concert replaces Boyz II Men, who had to postpone their concert until Sept. 24.
HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts is bringing the Pointer Sisters to the stage on May 21. The 7:30 p.m. concert replaces the originally scheduled group Boyz II Men.
“We were recently informed by Boyz II Men that they are postponing their American spring tour until next fall. For Columbia, that means that the concert originally scheduled for May 21 will be moved to Sept. 24,” said Columbia Theatre Director Donna Gay Anderson. “Tickets originally purchased for May 21 will be valid for the September date.”
Ticket buyers with concerns should contact the Columbia Theatre box office at 985-543-4371, Anderson said.
“The good news is that because May 21 has opened up, we were able to schedule the legendary Pointer Sisters to perform on that date. Those tickets will go on sale to the general public Jan. 20,” she said.
The Pointer Sisters have celebrated 36 years in the music industry, with five gold albums, one platinum and one multi-platinum album to their credit. They are best known for their hits from the 80s that include “Neutron Dance,” “Automatic,” “He’s So Shy,” “I’m So Excited,” and “Slow Hand.”
Tickets for the Pointer Sisters are $58, Orchestra; $64, Loge; and $48, Balcony and are available at the Columbia box office, 220 East Thomas Street, 985-543-4371, or online at columbiatheatre.org.
Box office hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and one hour before performance times. Southeastern students may purchase half-priced tickets, while supplies last, at the box office with university I.D.
