In 2005, at the peak of the conflict in Afghanistan, 19 SEALS were ambushed and killed in the Afghan mountains when a reconnaissance mission went awry. By sheer luck, injured navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell survived the attack, but kept surviving through determination and strength of will. Hear his astounding story, amongst others, on the Patriot Tour this Fall.

A performance by Lila Downs is always a colorful and unforgettable experience of Mexican culture and arts, as the singer-songwriter incorporates traditional music and dance from a variety of Mesoamerican cultures, as well as native languages and ancient traditions and folklore.

From his silver hair to his stunning and unique vocal stylings, Michael McDonald is one of the biggest names of the 70's and 80's. Starting from humble beginnings as a back up singer for Steely Dan, he became one of the Doobie Brother's best assets, as well as finding incredible solo success in his own right, with hits such as 'On My Own' and 'I Keep Forgettin'.

October 28, 2017

Enjoy an evening in the company of the Italian pianist and composer whose ambient and sparse compositions have graced many a movie soundtrack of recent years. His fusion of the classical genre with contemporary pop, rock, folk music and more has seen him quietly cross over to the mainstream, making his recitals highly sought after for fans of his innovative sound.

After taking an extended break, progressive rock legends King Crimson returned to the stage in 2014, and they've been touring ever since. The new set up includes three drummers, which would be surprising for any other band but King Crimson. The group formed in London in the late 60s and went onto become one of the most influential progressive rock bands of all time.
