Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota 2012-13 season announced
Her Van Wezel debut, in February, is the foundation gala centerpiece of the performing arts hall's eclectic 2012-13 season.
Single tickets for Crow and all the other upcoming shows, which range from pop vocalists and classical orchestras to contemporary dance companies and Broadway blockbusters, go on sale Sept. 8.
"She's just the coolest lady," Mary Bensel, executive producer of the Van Wezel, said of Crow. "She's a celebrity who supports wonderful causes and we're so thrilled to have her for our gala."
R&B singer John Legend, hip-hop artist/actress Queen Latifah and actor John Lithgow are also among the Sarasota premieres during the Van Wezel's 43rd season.
Glen Campbell, the singer of such classic recordings as "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Southern Nights" and "Galveston," is scheduled to perform Nov. 4.
"It was really important for us to get him," Bensel said. "His agent say he's doing brilliantly and that this is so good for him, to see his fans and play his music."
