Grammy-winning recording artist, songwriter, and musician Janis Ian brings her “Celebrating Our Years Together” tour to the Riviera Theatre. The months-long run, which Ian is calling her “final tour of the U.S.,” follows the January release of "The Light at the End of the Line"—her “last solo studio album” and first album of new material in fifteen years.
The Tubes formed in 1972 in San Francisco from two bands that moved there from Phoenix, The Beans along with the Red, White and Blues Band. While musically influenced by groups like Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart, who actually recorded a song with the group on their third album, their theatrical satire was evident from the very beginning. All these years later, The Tubes still consists of, original members, the irrepressible front man Fee Waybill, world-class drummer Prairie Prince, virtuoso guitarist Roger Steen and oh-so-steady bassist Rick Gator Anderson, and continue to delight fans across the country and around the world with their iconic live shows.
Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 55-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.
