Legendary rock guitarist and songwriter, Dave Davies, co-founder with his brother Ray Davies of the British Invasion group, The Kinks, is performing at the Beacon Theatre in Hopewell on Thursday, April 12.

A true pioneer rumored to have helped create the first heavy metal guitar tone when he sliced his amp speaker, Davies wrote some of the band's great under-appreciated songs including "Hold My Hand," "Living on a Thin Line" and "Strangers," while singing lead vocals on memorable classics such as "I'm Not Like Everybody Else."

Davies suffered a stroke in 2004 and has had a long recovery back to taking the stage again, having to learn to walk, talk and play guitar.

Advance tickets went on sale on Friday, Dec. 15 and range from $30 to $45 ($80 for the orchestra pit) plus fees. Call 804-446-3457 or visit online at www.beaconvatickets.com.

In related news, the Beacon also announced a show by country star Dwight Yoakam on Wednesday, Feb. 7.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Dec. 22 at 10am at the box office, 804-446-3457 and online via www.beaconvatickets.com. Ticket prices range from $60-$100 + applicable fee. According to its FB page, "VIP packages including up front ticket, meet and greet pass, one autographed item and more will be available in early January."
