Area concertgoers will be treated later this year to a concert by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. The Wildey Theater in Edwardsville has announced two shows by the classic rockers will be held December 28th and 29th.

The band has been active for almost 50 years. Wildey Theater Manager Al Canal tells The Big Z they have a big local following.

The band is known for such songs as “If You Wanna Get To Heaven,” “Jackie Blue,” “Chicken Train,” and “Standing On The Rock.” Tickets go on sale today (Wednesday), and Canal notes the last time they played the Wildey it was a sell-out. You can get tickets at the Wildey box-office in Edwardsville, by calling 618-307-1750, or online at
