Parton’s concerts have little flare, no pyrotechnics or bungee cords, just acoustics, electric instruments, lights, rhinestones and lots of big hair. Her infectious personality is what always makes a Dolly Parton concert the ticket seller. Songs included in the concert were “Together You And I” and “Better Day.”
