Local, regional venues offer entertainment

The singer, set to perform an unplugged show at the Signature Event Center, sang lead on Fuel hits such as “Shimmer” and “Hemorrhage (In My Hands).” Scallions initially spent 13 years with Fuel through 2006, rejoining for another stint from 2010 to 2020.

Little River Band, meanwhile, will spend time “Reminiscing” during a show at Penn’s Peak. Speaking of reminiscing, Donny Osmond will pull from his 50-plus years in show business when he brings his Las Vegas show to Wind Creek Event Center.
