We have another concert coming to Evansville in 2024 that you won't want to miss!

It's a new year, and that means more concerts coming to town. We have already had already a few of these concerts. Riley Green had an awesome show at the Ford Center in February, and there are a few upcoming shows coming to Evansville this year too. Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top are coming to the Ford Center in August, Gary Allan will be at the Old National Events Plaza in April, Jason Aldean in August, Koe Wetzel in October, and Lainey Wilson coming up in November. All of those shows will surely be great concerts to attend, but the concerts don't stop there. We have another concert announcement making its way to Evansville in 2024!

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
