The Guess Who set to rock Southern Ground

On Saturday night, Fayetteville will receive a raucous visit from Canadian rockers The Guess Who at the Southern Ground Amphitheater. Opening act will be CTW from Jonesboro.

The Guess Who, the band that became Canada's first international rock music superstars, began in 1962 in Winnipeg. Experimenting with the sounds of freedom, psychedelic, and garage rock that were filtering across the border from Minneapolis, The Guess Who really made their biggest impact on American radio in 1968 with the single 'These Eyes.' Heralded as the beginning of the Canadian Invasion, 'These Eyes' reached No. 3 in America with total sales of more than one million copies. Their second album for RCA, 'Canned Wheat,' also released in 1968, contained the Top 10 hits 'Laughing,' 'No Time' and the Top 40 hit 'Undun.'

Ironically it was 'American Woman' from March of 1970 that gave The Guess Who a No. 1 single in the U.S. and unseated The Beatles for three weeks straight. The Top 10 album, also titled 'American Woman,' containing the hits 'No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature,' also went to No. 1 in Billboard for three weeks.

Good seats still remain and range from $20 to $30. The next concert will be The Bellamy Brothers on Aug 17.

Tickets to all shows are available via the website at Southern-GroundAmp.com and at the Historic Courthouse in Downtown Fayetteville.
