Austin, TX - Seeing a living legend perform in person can be thrilling. Hearing an arena full of people belt out the unforgettable closing refrains of "Hey Jude" in time with Paul McCartney; watching LeBron James soar above a hapless opponent from a seat behind the basket; leaning forward as Sir Ian McKellen begins Shakespeare’s famous "Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks!" speech from "King Lear." Such experiences are singular, unforgettable.
But rarer still is the occasion when the legend in question surpasses even your sky-high expectations.Dolly Parton isn’t just great.
