After releasing seven studio albums between 1996 and 2011 with his rock band Staind, singer, songwriter and guitarist Aaron Lewis went solo -- and he went country. His first country album, The Road, hit stores in 2012 and was embraced by fans, reaching No. 7 on the country album charts. With Staind on hiatus, he made his debut on the stage of Nashville's famous Grand Ole Opry in 2013, a year that also saw him headline the Jagermeister Country Tour. Even when Staind was active, Lewis toured clubs extensively with his acoustic guitar, mixing in Staind material with his newer country-leaning songs. The country material -- such as his hit "Country Boy" -- dominated his setlists in 2013, but fans who bought tickets did see Lewis play some Staind favorites as well, including "So Far Away," "It's Been Awhile," and "Outside." Lewis was born in Vermont and raised in Massachusetts, and began playing solo acoustic concerts at age 17. Staind broke out in 1999 with the help of a live version of "Outside" that Lewis sang with Limp Bizkit during the 1999 Family Values Tour.

In the few short but busy years since Billy Strings began his professional career in 2013, no other newcomer to the bluegrass scene has inspired as much excitement. Whether he's picking on a guitar, a mandolin, or a banjo, he attacks his instrument with all the fury and finesse you'd expect from a heavy-metal guitar god, which is why it's not so surprising that this young dynamo is just as quick to cite the influence of Jimi Hendrix and Tony Iommi on his wildly exciting style as he is to hail more old-school heroes like Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs.
Born William Apostol in Lansing, Michigan, in 1992, Billy Strings knew his fate was sealed when his dad bought him his first guitar in an antique store for $30. His aunt gave him his equally useful nickname when she heard what he could do with it. Though Strings was an eager learner when it came to the bluegrass lessons he got from his dad - a singer, flatpicker, and Doc Watson aficionado who filled Strings' Michigan home with music and musicians - the teenage Strings immersed himself in hard rock and heavy metal, too.
The result is a uniquely powerful approach to traditional American music that Strings first showcased on 'Fiddle Tune X' - a 2014 collection of high-speed country classics recorded with mandolin wizard Don Julin - and a self-titled 2016 EP that followed his move to Nashville. As he honed his skills playing hundreds of gigs a year, acclaim from peers and critics duly followed. The International Bluegrass Music Association awarded him the 2016 Momentum Award for Instrumentalist of the Year. A year later, Acoustic Guitar and Rolling Stone both cited him as one to watch.
Released in 2017 with an array of friends and fellow pickers like Bryan Sutton and Molly Tuttle, Strings' debut album 'Turmoil & Tinfoil' matches stunning displays of his speed and dexterity with a wide-ranging style and sensibility. On songs like the nine-minute marvel "Meet Me at the Creek," he's able to connect some of the oldest and richest varieties of American roots music to heroes like Hendrix and the Grateful Dead, to Sturgill Simpson and other modern-day mavericks who are just as eager to blur the boundaries of bluegrass as Strings is himself.

Almost four years after his first foray into unfamiliar concert territory with his highly-acclaimed Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, “Weird Al” Yankovic is pressing his luck again, this time with The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. The tour marks Weird Al’s long-anticipated return to the concert stage after his hugely successful Strings Attached Tour in 2019 where he performed each night alongside a full symphony orchestra.
Once again drawing from his back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night, with no two shows the same. As before, rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the somewhat more obscure pastiches and original songs that have largely escaped the pop culture radar but are adored by his long-time fans. And like the last Vanity Tour, he is leaving behind the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and going bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens… just Al and his band of almost four decades in smaller, more intimate venues, hanging out on stage, playing music.
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time. A five-time Grammy winner, his 2014 release Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200. He is one of only five artists to have had Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades, the other four being Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, and Kenny G. On August 27, 2018 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded Weird Al with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Legendary comedian Emo Philips has performed over 7000 stand-up comedy shows across the globe, including a two-week theater run in London’s West End. Career highlights include his acclaimed comedy album E=MO Squared and the hour-long HBO special Emo Philips Live at the Hasty Pudding Theatre. Emo is especially proud, however, of when he got to demonstrate the proper use of a table saw to Weird Al in the film UHF.
COVID-19 Entry Policy for "Weird Al" 8/27/22:
All adult guests must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the concert to enter and must present matching photo ID. Children under 12 must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours.
Chicago's Lil Durk is not only one of the forefathers of Chicago's drill movement that influenced a generation of rappers across the world, he's also one of rap's current stars. 2020 saw Durk release two gold-certified albums - Just Cause Y'all Waited 2 and The Voice - which both peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and produced 12 Billboard Hot 100 entries. In 2021, Durk released his first ever chart-topping album, The Voice Of The Heroes with Lil Baby, which earned him a BET Hip-Hop Award for Best Rap Duo. Thanks in part to his prolific run of high-profile collaborations, including songs with Drake, Kanye West, and the 3x-platinum “Back in Blood” with Pooh Sheisty, Durk earned the honor of having the most Billboard Hot 100 chart entries in 2021 with 42. In addition to his own releases, Durk has experienced success through his Only The Family label venture, which catapulted the late King Von to mainstream recognition shortly before his untimely passing. The 2021 OTF compilation Loyal Bros debuted #12 on the Billboard 200 chart.
