In December 2013, Billy Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This unprecedented and wildly successful residency has led to 30 sold-out shows through June 2016.

Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, Billy Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time, the third best-selling solo artist and is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Joel is also one of the biggest live performing artists in the world, and his concerts continue to break records in both arenas and baseball stadiums.

In November 2014, Billy Joel received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding, entertaining and informing audiences, and inspiring new generations; and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.
In December 2013, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States’ top cultural awards. He is also the recipient of six GRAMMY® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards, including a TONY AWARD for “Movin’ Out,” a Broadway musical based on Joel’s music. For his accomplishments as a musician and as a humanitarian, Joel was honored as the 2002 MusiCares Person Of The Year by the MusiCares Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Joel has also performed alongside other music greats at two of Madison Square Garden’s most extraordinary benefit concerts – “12-12-12, The Concert For Sandy Relief,” which raised awareness and money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and “The Concert for New York City,” which was held to help aid 9/11 victims and heroes. Billy Joel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, adding another milestone to his brilliant career.

The tour will wrap up at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA, where the band has headlined more than 50 shows.

An online ticket presale will begin on Tuesday, January 26, at 10am ET at www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com for members of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 19, at 12pm local time. For itinerary, see below or visit davematthewsband.com.

“Dave Matthews Band delivered another terrific summertime gem at Blossom…It’s physiologically impossible not to have a great time at these shows,” said the Cleveland Scene in a 2015 live review. “You have to hear Dave Matthews Band live…[they] hit the road with a sound as big and expansive as the outdoor venues they play,” observed the Lexington Herald-Leader. “The two sets were dazzling,” said Examiner.com in a five-star review while The Indianapolis Star noted, “It was an evening of impressive pacing and a large variety of sonic textures.”

“DMB can do no wrong,” observed the Mirror in coverage of the band’s 2015 headline performance at London’s O2 Arena, noting: “Matthews is full of grace from the start and gives off a kind of warmth that makes you feel like he’s a good friend…With each song it felt like we were exploring each band members’ passion for their instruments.”

The band’s first performance of 2016 will be on February 4 at San Francisco’s Pier 70. The sold-out Super Thursday Night event is the first of three concerts hosted by DIRECTV and Pepsi in the days leading up to Super Bowl 50.

Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Sting & Peter Gabriel: Rock Paper Scissors Tour

8pm

stingpeterDon’t miss two of music’s most iconic artists – Sting and Peter Gabriel –  on this summer’s Rock Paper Scissors Tour!

  • Thursday, July 21st
  • KeyArena

Tickets for the Thursday, July 21st show at KeyArena in Seattle will go on sale starting February 1st at livenation.com.

Having first toured together in the eighties for Amnesty International, Rock Paper Scissors will find Peter Gabriel and Sting performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits.

“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.” Sting

“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.” Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included eleven studio albums, film soundtracks for Alan Parker’s ‘Birdy,’ Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and Philip Noyce’s ‘Rabbit Proof Fence,’ as well as numerous live albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World Records label, and in 1980 the creation of WOMAD, the festival that has launched the careers of many world music artists and has to date presented over 170 festivals in 30 countries.

Composer, singer, actor, author, and activist – Sting was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. Since 1989, Sting has released fourteen solo albums and received an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year.

The Last Ship, his latest release, is inspired by his memories of the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England, where he was born and raised. A play of the same name, with music and lyrics by Sting, debuted on Broadway in October 2014 and was heralded by the Associated Press as “thrilling with powerful performances, outstanding songs, and real heart.”

The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring HEART, JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS and CHEAP TRICK

7pm

Warm 106.9 is proud to welcome The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring HEART, JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS and CHEAP TRICK to White River Amphitheatre on Friday, August 26, 2016.

Three of rock music’s most iconic bands will hit the road together this summer on The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Cheap Trick.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80s and ‘90s, with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.”  Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, “Unvarnished,” last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans. “Unvarnished” debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 chart.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974, and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this April.

Based on the book by Maurice Sendak, A Presentation House Production
Directed by Kim Selody, Artistic Director, Presentation House Theatre
Originally adapted for the stage by TAG Theatre Glasgow, Scotland.

January 7–February 28, 2016

Sail along with Max to the land of the Wild Things. This award-winning, internationally acclaimed production from Vancouver’s Presentation House Theatre is an intimate “guided play” experience for ages 3 to 7. Adapted from the timeless classic, the audience helps to transform Max’s bedroom into the various landscapes of his adventures. The audience then becomes the Wild Things as they are each given a mask and encouraged to “let the Wild Rumpus begin!” With the leadership of the performers, the audience also helps bring Max safely home. This highly interactive production has toured all over the world and now Seattle families will have the opportunity to be part of this special show.

They say: “We certainly don’t need anyone to remind us to hit the farmers market in the height of summer, but in the winter, things change. The choice gets more limited, and let’s face it, it’s hard to feel inspired when it’s cold and rainy out. So join Laura Pyles as she shows you how to make the winter market feel fresh and exciting! You’ll make roasted sunchoke soup with caramelized fennel and sourdough croutons; crisped escarole with garlicky white beans and fontina; carrot and beet gratin with browned butter and marjoram; and apple-polenta upside-down cake.”

With portraits that swing out of their frames, a fountain that comes to life, acrobatic bellhops and juggling ghosts, it’s clear…this is no ordinary hotel!

THE BIG CLIMB is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual stair climb to the top of Seattle’s tallest skyscraper, challenging the community to join LLS in the battle against blood cancers!

The 69-flight climb up the Columbia Center, Seattle’s tallest skyscraper, includes 1,311 steps and 788 ft of vertical elevation. Participants can LLS-Biog-CLimb-Logo-clear-2choose to climb (untimed) or race (timed). Both courses end at the 73rd floor Observatory.

With the support of corporate sponsors, individuals, and friends & family teams, THE BIG CLIMB 2015 raised over $2.9 million – exceeding our financial goal. This year, our goal will be even higher because every additional dollar funds research that gets us closer to cures for blood cancers.   The need is great, but the opportunity to make a difference is even greater!

LLS-funded research has led to key advances in understanding blood cancers and the lifesaving drugs to fight them. Your generous support of THE BIG CLIMB makes medical advancements like these possible. All funds raised through the event will support LLS’ mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma – and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

 Registration opens at 7:00am on October 29th. To register, donate or for more information go to www.bigclimb.org.

The concert promises an intoxicating concoction of sultry Latin music, swinging jazz, cabaret, cinema scores and more. In the words of its effervescent bandleader/pianist Thomas Lauderdale, “Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure… if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.”

This “fascinating, ambitious, and original new musical (New York Post),” with unforgettable songs and a deeply moving story by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, follows two distinct storylines in the life of Elizabeth, a city planner who moves back to New York to restart her life in that city of infinite possibilities.  When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth’s life splits into two parallel paths.  If/Then follows both stories simultaneously as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.

Manhattan Transfer at Jazz Alley

7:30pm

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Manhattan Transfer to Jazz Alley from Thursday, August 13th through Sunday, August 16th!

Pjilogo3The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitiriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes back vocalese legends Manhattan Transfer for four nights and six shows. Band members are Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel and Trist Curless. Show times Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm and Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm all nights.

The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great jazz and pop hits that earned them induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Their first hit, “Operator,” was followed by the history making “The Boy From New York City” making them the first group to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year. The 12 Grammy nominations they received for their album Vocalese in 1985 made it the second only to Michael Jackson’s Thriller as most nominated album in one year, and cemented the group’s status as one of the most important and innovative vocal groups in the history of popular music. “Route 66” and their rendition of “Birdland” are yet more memorable classics of their 19 singles and 29 albums over their stellar career. With worldwide record sales in the millions, their melodic and jazz infused vocals continue to bring audiences back year after year spanning generations.

The critical praise and commercial success of The Manhattan Transfer’s first seven studio albums could hardly have prepared them for the monumental 12 Grammy nominations they received in 85′ for the album Vocalese. The legacy of The Manhattan Transfer continues on with Trist Curless stepping in for the late Tim Hauser.

Bartell’s Community Food Drive

9am-10pm

Bartell’s Community Food Drive – Benefiting Food Lifeline.

Now through June 27th come into your local Bartell Drugs and give to the Bartell’s Community Food Drive, benefiting Food Lifeline. For many low-income families, summer means struggling to replace low-cost and free meals provided by schools. For those of us with plenty, not having enough is hard to imagine-especially when it comes to food. Yet hunger and poor nutrition affect many people here in Western Washington, from the young to the elderly.

Bartell’s Community Food Drive, benefiting Food Lifeline, focuses on replenishing local food banks in the summer months when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home. Donate now and together we can solve hunger.
