CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE PERFORMS DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

Date: Fri., February 23rd, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $30 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

Pink Floyd takes us all on a journey. We live our lives alongside their masterpieces. They provide a soundtrack for our lives. Every time I hear ‘Time’ I can picture wood paneling, a stack of albums and a group of us,16 years old – full of dreams and hope.

We perform the album like an orchestra would perform Mozart. With reverence. And awe. Since the onset of Classic Albums Live in 2003, we have been continually striving for perfection within the performance of the album. We never take this record for granted. We never rest on our laurels. The album demands a deft touch. We use our ‘note for note’ phrase as a credo, but we also get fanatical about ‘tone for tone’ and ‘feel for feel.’ This music demands greatness. The performance needs to be perfect. There is no grey area. You’re either on the dark side of the moon or the bright side. Our orbit is sound.

‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is our flagship show. It’s the show that changed our lives for the better. We hope that at some time during the performance – you close your eyes and dream of both the future and the past. And that you realize that you have grown up with one of the greatest pieces of music ever made.

JOSH RITTER

Date: Thurs., March 1st, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $35 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

Josh Ritter’s acclaimed 20-year career as a songwriter and musician reaches new heights with the release of his ninth full-length album, Gathering. Along with his loyal band mates, the Royal City Band, Josh returned to the studio with more songs than he’d ever had before at one time. Reenergized after a recent collaboration with legendary musician Bob Weir (who also contributes vocals and guitar to a song on Gathering) and –at the same time — tired of living in the shadow of his earlier self, Ritter felt charged with exploring the possibility of cutting himself loose from his own and others’ expectations.

A songwriter, a musician, a New York Times best-selling author, a painter, a consummate per-former, Ritter encompasses all of these descriptors and more. He is a true artist. One who is not afraid of growing, changing and constantly challenging earlier versions of himself. Here, two decades into his storied career, Ritter is just getting started.

PUDDLES PITY PARTY

Date: Tues., March 27th, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $35 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

Originally from River City before kicking around Atlanta, the sulking serenader gained momentum after hitting the road as guest performer on the 2010 Aqua Teen Hunger Force Live tour and 2013 Eels tour and making special appearances at Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni and NYC’s Sleep No More.

It was Halloween 2013 when Puddles then teamed up with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox to record an epic version of Lordes’ hit song “Royals,” which instantly went viral on YouTube, having received over 16 million views so far. The “sad clown with the golden voice” captivated audiences and media from around the world, building a fan base of more than 167,000 on Facebook.

Puddles has since performed all over the planet garnering rave reviews at festivals like Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Perth Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Fest and Belgium’s Gent Fest. He was a feature performer in La Soiree’s 2014 Southbank show in London, which won the Olivier Award. In 2015, Jack Black selected Puddles to perform multiple sets at Festival Supreme, and Puddles was handpicked by Neil Patrick Harris to perform Just For Laugh’s “Circus Awesomeus” gala filmed for HBO Canada.

Today, the softhearted crooner continues to wander the world with melancholic pop anthems and free hugs for all the party people. Though his suitcase is packed with plenty of Kleenex, the show is not entirely about sadness and longing. Puddles’ set is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.

CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE PERFORMS LED ZEPPELIN II

Date: Fri., April 27th, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $30 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

Led Zeppelin 2 has it all: Drum solos! Guitar solos! Lemons! I get emails from people telling me that their kids were conceived to this record! Perhaps that’s the ultimate compliment you can pay an album!

Every rock musician who picks up an instrument gravitates toward Zep. Every musician says they can play Zep. But most can’t. There’s an undefinable quality to their music. Once every couple of months, I stay up all night and comb the internet for bands that can play Led Zeppelin better than CAL. I never find anyone that comes close.

I have put together the greatest Led Zeppelin band in the world. I can’t believe my luck. I get to rock out with an audience of like minded people. I can’t think of anything better than being in a beautiful communal setting and revelling in one of the greatest albums ever made.

Commenting on the tour announcement Daniel said I’m really looking forward to returning to touring the USA next year. We introduced some new musicians and some different instruments when we went back touring earlier this year and I am delighted to say that they have been a great success, fans everywhere have complimented them on their great talent as musicians and have really welcomed them on board. Although he took a break in early 2016 to tour the world with his wife Majella, Daniel added I was really looking forward to going back on the road in America and getting back out there to meet the fans, who I’m so very thankful for, as they are the ones who make these shows happen. We really enjoyed the short set of dates we performed in October and are already looking forward to next year’s tour.

“WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC WITH SPECIAL GUEST EMO PHILIPS

Date: June 6th, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $59.50-69.50 +fees
VIP Meet and Greet: $256.50 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

In 2018 “Weird Al” Yankovic will launch The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour – a stripped-down, no-frills production.

After his highly successful Mandatory World Tour (200 dates including the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall), Yankovic decided that he wanted to take a break from the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and go bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens… just Al and his band of three decades hanging out on stage, playing music. Because of the nature of the show, Yankovic will be performing exclusively in intimate theatres and settings.

Drawing from a back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night – no two shows along the tour will be the same. And rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the deep cuts and obscure tracks.

According to Al: “After 35 years of big productions, I just wanted to take it down a few notches and have a little musical palate cleanser. This show will be loose, unpredictable, and maybe a bit sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along!”

Opening the show each night will be Al’s long-time friend (and UHF cast member), the legendary comedian Emo Philips.
