Original “Dukes of Hazzard” reunite on Webb Center stage

Return of the Dukes- BrochureThe boys are back in town! You know them best as Bo & Luke Duke from the hit television series The Dukes of Hazzard, but Tom Wopat & John Schneider are both multi-talented and versatile performers.  Now see them again in the “Return of the Dukes” on the Webb Center stage on Friday, March 1 at 7:30 pm.

Backed by a full band, Wopat and Schneider are live in concert swapping stories and singing songs from their solo careers. With a blend of Broadway, country and standards, the artists will entertain with songs such as: Boys are Back in Town, Let It Roll, Don’t Fence Me In, You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’, and more.

Tom Wopat’s expressive and flexible baritone singing voice has made him a Broadway star for over 30 years. He received a Tony Award nomination and shared a Grammy Award in 1999 for his role in the Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun, and received another Tony Award nomination in 2005 for leading actor in “A Catered Affair.”  Other Broadway credits include leading roles in City of Angels, Guys and Dolls, Chicago and Catch Me If You Can. Wopat also has emerged as a successful recording artist with a gruff, scotch-on-the-rocks style that has been featured on eight outstanding albums.

Alongside his acting career, John Schneider launched a country-music career in the 1980s, releasing nine studio albums and eighteen singles. A handful of songs reached the top of the Billboard country singles charts, including “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know,” “Country Girls,” and “You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight.” Schneider has appeared in many films and TV series, most notably playing Clark Kent’s dad on “Smallville.” Most recently, the performer has starred in several movies and is currently filming a Tyler Perry television series.

Tickets for this evening of song and storytelling range from $25-$45 for adults and $5 for 18 and under. For seating availability, call the Webb Center Box Office at (928) 684-6624 or visit the event page here.

    Looking forward to enjoying tonight’s show….It’s been 30 years since I was an acquaintance with John as an employee of Atlanta’s Eastern Airlines when he was just getting started. I’d have to define John as an old friend* vs dedicated fan. I was fortunate to visit Burbank in late 70′s with my Mom and had pictures (Kodak snapshots) taken that I treasure. I have since moved to AZ via MT. I hope to enjoy tonight’s show…
