‘Pure” Dolly Parton on display at Tobin Center concert

December 11, 2016 - 4:30pm

Hello, Dolly!

Country music icon Dolly Parton made a grand entrance at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday to the refrain of Louis Armstrong’s signature hit and delivered a show that out-dazzled her glitzy dresses, rhinestone guitars, high heels and big hair.

She headlined the third annual benefit concert for the Tobin Center’s Generation NEXT Education Initiative, a gig which has seen Sir Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie in that role. She topped them both for emotional richness beyond the expected hits and mega starstruck nostalgia for the 1,752 in attendance.
