A resonating theme this week in entertainment is that Van Wert Rocks and big hair is back! The next hit holiday show coming to the Niswonger in 2021 was just announced. The Wizards of Winter is a holiday rock event for the entire family featuring former members of The Trans Siberian Orchestra and other Classic Rock Bands including Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Trixter, and the Ted Nugent Band. The full stage spectacle consists of 12 musical Wizards who will command the stage with a symphonic approach to the great roots of progressive rock.

As dynamic programming continues, shows are constantly being announced. Every event release is first available to Van Wert Live Members. Becoming a member can include perks like a VIP parking space, guaranteed seats and advanced buying opportunities. Membership provides perks to those who seek live entertainment experiences and support the vision to make Van Wert an entertainment destination. The cool thing is memberships are available from as low as $100! Membership not only gets you the experience that you want but it also helps make the arts accessible for more people. The Van Wert Live team will not be fully satisfied until all have the opportunity to experience live entertainment in our fine music city.

To that end, the Feel Good Friday series in Fountain Park, fully funded by The Van Wert County Foundation provides the opportunity for free entertainment every Friday night. This Friday at 7:30 p.m., rock will take center stage with the highly acclaimed That Arena Rock Show. This high-energy tribute to “Classic” Rock N’ Roll features legendary rock anthems that ruled the airwaves in the ’70s and ’80s. No doubt it will be hard to remain in a lawn chair with hit songs from Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses to name a few.

This show will take the audience on a trip back in time, turning Fountain Park into an arena for a night! Get your lighters out and your fist in the air. This rock show is more than just music - it’s a Van Wert experience!
