The last time I had the chance to see Bill Engvall in Rockford was when he rolled through the BMO Harris Bank Center with fellow Blue Collar stars Larry The Cable Guy, and Jeff Foxworthy. It's one of those nights you never forget because your sides and face muscles actually hurt at the end of the night from laughing and smiling so much.

Also, his style of comedy is relatable. It's about life, marriage, kids and growing up. At times, your laughing because it's as if he talking about your memories and life. They say the best medicine is laughter so if you're in need, mark this date on your calendar.

Tickets are $29.50 and go on sale Friday, June 5 at 10 a.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center or thru ticketmaster.
