Garrison Keillor is about to embark on his final tour of live radio broadcasts, and one of the famed raconteur’s stops will be Spokane.
The “Prairie Home Companion” host, who recently announced his eventual retirement from the airwaves, will broadcast his famous variety show from the INB Performing Arts Center on May 14 at 3 p.m.
Premiering on Minnesota Public Radio in 1974, “A Prairie Home Companion,” featuring live musical performances, comic routines and Keillor’s humorous tales of the fictional town Lake Wobegon, remains a popular and nationally syndicated radio program. It even inspired a Robert Altman-directed feature film in 2006.
Tickets go on sale the morning of Nov. 20 and will be available through TicketsWest. Prices range from $45 to $75.
Keillor last was in Spokane in 2013, and “Companion” was previously broadcast from Spokane in 2010.
