The acclaimed singer-songwriter guitarist typically plays more Michigan Theater-sized venues.

John Hiatt and the Combo are set to play The Ark Sunday, Aug. 4. For this show, The Ark will have a larger-than-usual section for reserved seating, with "Gold Circle" seating available at the center front of the club.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 13, in person at the Michigan Union Ticket Office or by phone at 734-763-8587. Online orders start at 10 a.m. Saturday through the Michigan Union Ticket Office.

Tickets are priced at $50, $65 and $75.

Hiatt's better-known songs include "Have a Little Faith in Me"; "Cry Love"; and "Thing Called Love," which was a major hit for Bonnie Raitt. His latest album is "Mystic Pinball."
