SPRINGFIELD -- The University of Illinois at Springfield 2007-2008 Performing Arts Season at Sangamon Auditorium will conclude with a performance by Arlo Guthrie, part of his Solo Reunion Tour, Together at Last on Thursday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m.

Folk artist Guthrie, composer of 1967's "Alice's Restaurant," became an enduring symbol of social activism during the 1960s, continuing the legacy of his late father, the iconic folksinger Woody Guthrie. Now, for the first time in over a decade, Arlo Guthrie embarks on a solo tour with nothing but a couple of guitars and a harmonica, something he has rarely done since his performance at Woodstock in 1969.
