Before they were Grammy Award-winning Country Hall of Famers, Alabama used to play for tips at The Bowery on Ocean Boulevard. Years after their chart-topping success, the band sought to bring high-level live music and entertainment to audiences around the Grand Strand, and collaborated with the owners of the Grand Ole Opry to open this Barefoot Landing venue.
In addition to their multi-million dollar blockbuster "ONE: The Show," Alabama Theatre brings in some of the biggest names in the music industry year-in and year-out. The list of artists who have recently graced the stage includes The Oak Ridge Boys, Englebert Humperdink, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Temptations and Four Tops, Three Dog Night, and countless others.
"ONE: The Show" is a powerful journey full of song, dance, and laughter, that will affect each member of the audience in a unique way. The show features a blend of country, rock, pop, gospel, Broadway, and family-friendly comedian Greg Rowles, whose character Ricky Mokel leaves the crowd in stitches.
Alabama Theatre also features "The South's Grandest Christmas Show" during November and December each year. The performance has become a tradition for many local families and visitors who make a yearly winter trip to the Grand Strand, and it's sure to put everyone into the Christmas Spirit by the end of the night.
