Super Saturday in Huntington

Feb. 16, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Downtown Huntington is likely to be a very busy place this Saturday night, with two major concerts and a big Herd home game.

Here is a look at some of the events planned for Saturday evening in Huntington:

COUNTRY SHOW: Country artists Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley spent last weekend performing together at the Grammys, but are spending this Saturday at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. with opening act Thomas Rhett.

A LITTLE BIT OF SOUL: Motown music legend Smokey Robinson is bringing his distinctive voice to the Keith-Albee at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $75 and $58 and can be purchased on ticketmaster.com.

MEMPHIS COMES TO MARSHALL: It's usually pretty crowded when the Memphis Tigers come to the Cam Henderson Center. The 11-14 Herd is coming off a win against Rice and lost against Memphis 73-72 on Jan. 26 in Memphis. The game is at 8 p.m. and if you want to watch from home, it's televised on the CBS Sports Network (Channel 174 on Huntington Comcast cable).

IT'S A BALL: The Huntington Museum of Art will host its annual Museum Ball this weekend.

The theme for the event is "Here's Looking at You: Thanking the Tri-State for 60 Years of Support." The cocktail reception and high-end silent auction begin at 6 p.m. Seating for dinner will begin at 7:30 p.m. Dancing to the music of The Company begins at 9 p.m.
