MONROE — Crystal Bowersox will return to the area Oct. 19 for a concert at the Monroe County Community College La-Z-Boy Center, Meyer Theater.

The Elliston, Ohio native and 2010 American Idol runner-up is doing a fall tour before appearing as Patsy Cline on Broadway. A story in the theater industry publication Playbill said that Always... Patsy Cline, which is to star Bowersox and Academy Award nominee Annette O’Toole was pushed back until later in the fall due to a lack of available theaters.

She released her second album, “All That For This,” in March and played in Toledo on March 3.

Tickets for the Monroe show are $27 and $37 and are available at monroeccc.edu/​theater/​events.htm.
