Singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne takes MSU Riley Center stage Tuesday night

Singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne brings his Just Passing Through Tour to the MSU Riley Center in downtown Meridian on Tuesday [Nov. 6] at 7:30 p.m., along with special guests The Secret Sisters.

LaMontagne’s new album, “Part of the Light,” returns to the acoustic-guitar sound and emotionally direct lyrics that made him a star -- in his own low-key way -- with such hits as “Beg Steal or Borrow” and “You Are the Best Thing.” The electric guitars and mystical poetry of his previous album, “Ouroboros,” give way to the quiet intensity of “Such a Simple Thing,” the new album’s first single release.

“I really have a lot of respect for music, the art form of music,” LaMontagne told Rolling Stone magazine. “It’s my whole life."

Tickets are $73 and $67 at the MSU Riley Center Box Office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also can be purchased online at or by phone at (601) 696-2200.
