A Grammy Award winner will perform New Year’s Eve in Columbus.
Charlie Wilson, who was the lead singer for The Gap Band, an R&B/funk hitmaker in the 1970s and 1980s, then overcame drug addiction, homelessness and prostate cancer to become a solo star, will help local fans say farewell to 2018 and welcome 2019 when he appears Dec. 31 on the Columbus Civic Center stage.
Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the show is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., concert promoter Mike Blackwell told the Ledger-Enquirer on Friday. Tickets, priced at $59, $79 and $89, will go on sale Oct. 19 at the civic center’s box office and at TicketMaster.com.
