Seventy-six-year-old songwriter Jimmy Webb has penned tunes for Art Garfunkel, Glen Campbell, and Linda Ronstadt. He’s also the guy who wrote “MacArthur Park” for Richard Harris—a future Albus Dumbledore—in 1968.

We’re sure that his performance in Largo—a city he was scheduled to perform in last year, but canceled for unknown reasons—will be unforgettable, but nothing beats when he sang “In My Room” to Brian Wilson in 2001, alongside Carly Simon and the late David Crosby.

Tickets to see Jimmy Webb play Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo on Friday, Feb. 3 are still available for $29.50-44.50.
