Multitalented country-music artist Sara Evans draws from her arsenal of chart-topping hits in her performance at the intimate Arena Theatre. Sara has specialized in old-fashioned country music since 1997, when her debut album started a snowball of multiplatinum successes and fans piled up like breaking-and-entering charges against Santa. After a sabbatical of scribing faith-based novels such as Love Lifted Me and hoofing it on Dancing with the Stars, Sara returned to her chart-topping perch with her latest album, Stronger, featuring the hit “A Little Bit Stronger.” Although striking enough to be voted one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2005, it’s Sara’s buoyant croon that breaks and mends hearts as she bellows anthems such as “No Place That Far” and “Born to Fly.”

At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
