For this outing, the band — best known for the 2000 hit “Kryptonite” — will play acoustic versions of its catalog of music.

“We experimented with an acoustic show in Nashville and had such a great response that we decided to take it on the road,” says singer Brad Arnold. “We’ve never toured like this before, some of these songs have never been played live.”

Tickets for the Visalia show go on sale 10 a.m. Friday and cost $30-$60. They will be available at theater box office, (559) 625-FOX, or online at It also looks like a limited number of special VIP on-stage seating will be available starting tomorrow.
