Broadway: ThePianoGuys ::

Broadway: ThePianoGuys Date: Friday November 15, 2019
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets
Since their serendipitous start in a Southern Utah piano shop, THE PIANO GUYS have proven to be a powerhouse group without limits. Arriving as a musical phenomenon seemingly overnight, the quartet of Jon Schmidt (pianist, songwriter), Steven Sharp Nelson (cellist, songwriter), Paul Anderson (producer, videographer), and Al van der Beek (music producer, songwriter) have delivered bold compositions that transcend boundaries of style and genre, a boundlessness that has since translated into a massively-successful career. With their 2018 release, The Piano Guys took their next step forward in an already impressive career that has proven to be nothing short of Limitless. And now Steven and Jon are gearing up to hit the road with their fantastic music and great humor.
 
"Who would have ever thought four middle-aged dads from Utah filming classically influenced music in nature could ever succeed at the outset?" asks member Steven Sharp Nelson. "That is why the name Limitless works so well. Our favorite thing is to find a way to be on the fringes of possibility. We like to combine things you would never expect to find together-but are close enough to make sense. It has been our mindset from the beginning."
 
Since formally introducing themselves in 2011, The Piano Guys have released five studio albums, two Christmas releases and a fan-favorite live album, earning six No. 1 debuts on Billboard's Top Classical Albums chart and garnering an impressive 2 billion-plus global streams, over 1.6 billion YouTube views, and averaging nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone. They have sold out concerts in almost every corner of the world and attracted a diehard audience of millions. The Piano Guys have appeared in The New York Times, Fast Company, Buzzfeed, Mashable, People, been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and performed on the TODAY Show, Good Morning America and The Tonight Show.
 
In late 2017, they hunkered down at their own TPG Studios in Utah and commenced work on what would become Limitless. A sublime, soaring, and sweeping cover of Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" teased out the forthcoming project, generating over 8 million Spotify streams and nearly 20 million YouTube views. Moreover, the crossover of The Chainsmokers' "Something Just Like This" (feat. Coldplay) and Franz Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" further illustrated their signature penchant for masterful mash-ups.
 
Throughout the process, the music would live up to the name Limitless as they once again leapt past boundaries. "Often, highlights of a symphonic masterwork thrown into a piece of pop music or film score give people an invitation or a gateway to enjoy classical music," Steven elaborates. "We like to tantalize their taste buds. If you consider pop music the sugar, we are putting greens into it and making a smoothie."
 
That is exactly what they do on the "Swan Lake/In My Blood" mash-up. The musicians find a common ground between a recognizable movement of the Tchaikovsky ballet Swan Lake- a first for the band-and "In My Blood" by Shawn Mendes. The results merges the composer's heightened drama and a transfixing pop melody carried by emotive strings and lush piano. "We had yet to employ the work of Tchaikovsky into one of our arrangements," continues the cellist. "We also had not used much material from a ballet yet. It was fun to reach beyond those traditional limits of genre and composers. When we heard 'In My Blood,' we loved the message. Every time Shawn feels like giving up, he sings, 'It isn't in my blood to give up.' That is very much the story of Swan Lake too. The stories attached to each other fluidly."
 
The four-piece charted new territory by reimagining two songs from Korean pop juggernaut BTS. For "DNA," Steven simultaneously plays cello and speaks through a talk box in Korean, while Al serves up raps in the language. Meanwhile, they channel sentimentality through powerful piano chords in the evocative "Epiphany." "The bonus is Al and I both spend time living in Korea, serving as missionaries at different times and in different places," he goes on. "We learned the language and immersed ourselves in the culture. It is very special to be able to take a K-Pop song and turn it into orchestral masterpiece."
 
The album closes with an original from the group, "Miracles," in which the four-piece teams with the Chinese Philharmonic Orchestra to bring their story of hope to the forefront. "We love throwing in new textures, so it has got electric cello" he adds. "Thematically, it is the moment where someone remembers the miracles they have experienced in their lives. That is our story. As children, we feel completely free. We have not had the limits of the world projected on us yet in youth. We have not been oppressed by the limits we place on ourselves about failure either. The whole album is a reminder that this innocence still exists within us, and we can do anything."
 
In the end, Limitless shares an important message. "We hope this feeling of Limitless-ness transfers," he leaves off. "As a mission of The Piano Guys, we hope we can be spokesmen of hope and faith. We want to make listeners feel like they can get up and conquer the world. We hope you become excited about what you can do!"

Third Eye Blind - Screamer Tour ::

Third Eye Blind - Screamer Tour Date: Friday November 22, 2019
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Following an October UK run, Third Eye Blind will be touring the US this fall in support of Screamer, their seventh full-length album, out October 18. They will be making a one night stop at the Coronado Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 22 at 8:00PM. Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 23, 10:00AM local time.  

Going strong for over two decades, Third Eye Blind has broken their own attendance records with 2019’s Summer Gods tour, with Jimmy Eat World and Ra Ra Riot.  (Third Eye Blind has offset the tour’s carbon footprint by donating a portion of each ticket sold to a US-based carbon offset project managed by ClimeCo.)

The follow up to 2018’s EP Thanks for Everything, Screamer finds Third Eye Blind collaborating with Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells (“Screamer”), Ryan Olson of Marijuana Death Squad and Poliça (“Who Am I” and “Got So High”), and the album’s musical consigliere, Billy Corgan.

“We have always been so insular,” says Jenkins, “and on Screamer we adopted an open door policy -- come in, be musical, and follow the song where it takes us.”

“It’s an incredible feeling to be in a good rock band,” adds Jenkins.  “The gift that’s been given to me is that people view my music as enlivening them.”

Screamer will be available everywhere on October 18, and October 11 on the ‘Ten Bands One Cause’ Pink Vinyl Campaign Benefitting Gilda’s Club NYC.

Lewis Black - It Gets Better Every Day ::

Lewis Black - It Gets Better Every Day Date: Thursday January 30, 2020
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

LEWIS BLACK, GRAMMY Award-winning, stand-up comedian announces 2020 tour, ‘It Gets Better Every Day.’ “When I say, ‘It gets better every day,’ you might be wondering, ‘is he being facetious?’ Come to the show and find out.  Or stay home and wallow in your sadness.”

Black is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as a stand-up comedian, actor, and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.

His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

Since 2014 Lewis Black has done over 400 live streaming shows, called THE RANT IS DUE, at the end of each of his standup performances. Adding his own unique style, Lewis delivers audience-written Rants which have been submitted from the fans at his show and throughout the world.  With so much to get off their chests, people use Lewis’ platform to Rant about what’s on their minds. For a view of the latest shows, and the submission form, click here.

LEWIS BLACK continues as the longest-running contributor to THE DAILY SHOW on Comedy Central. He has had comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 GRAMMY Award-winning The Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second GRAMMY Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has published three bestselling books: Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010). In 2012, he performed eight sell-out shows at Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway as well as did one of his two HBO Specials BLACK ON BROADWAY. In 2015, Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award-winning film from Pixar, Inside Out.

Tickets go on-sale Friday, November 1 @ 10am. Official F.U.C.K.U. Fan Club Members will have early access to tickets, within the first 10 rows, on October 30. F.U.C.K.U. tickets can only be purchased through lewisblack.com. All other tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com or the venue box office.

John Moreland : OnStage Series ::

John Moreland : OnStage Series Date: Friday January 31, 2020
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

The Coronado Americana Music Series is a unique limited ticket series allowing you to be on stage with the artists and enjoy the Coronado from a different perspective. We invite all guests to the Coronado PAC stage for an intimate night of music and good company. All seating is general admission.

Over the last half a dozen years or so, John Moreland’s honesty has stunned us––and stung. As he put hurts we didn’t even realize we had or shared into his songs, we sang along. And we felt better. But there has always been far more to Moreland than sad songs. Today, his earthbound poetry remains potent, but in addition to his world-weary candor, Moreland’s music smolders with gentle wisdom, flashes of wit and joy, and compassion. And once again, as we listen, we feel better.

“I can’t dress myself up and be some folk singer character that I’m not really,” Moreland says. “I figured, I can’t dress up these songs and try to sell them that way. All I can do is be me.”

Out February 2020, his latest album LP5 proves John Moreland has gotten really good at being John Moreland––thank God. A masterful display of songwriting by one of today’s best young practitioners of the art form, LP5 is Moreland’s finest record to date. The album’s experimentations with instrumentation and sounds capture an artist whose confidence has grown, all without abandoning the hardy roots rock bed and the lyrics-first approach Moreland’s work demands. “I feel like just this year, in the past few months, I’ve reached a point where I feel like I know what I’m doing here now,” he says. “And I feel comfortable with it.”
