Lucinda Williams, The Band Perry and Primus coming to The AMP in May | AnnouncementAnnouncement, News — By Christopher Spencer on February 28, 2011 at 3:58 pm
Three AMP concerts go on sale
After purchasing The AMP at the Northwest Arkansas Mall (The AMP), Walton Arts Center is excited to announce three new concerts:
Lucinda Williams with Legendary Billy Joe Shaver will perform at the AMP on Sunday, May 1 at 8pm, (gates open at 6pm). Tickets go on sale Friday, February 25 at 9am and range from $17.00 to $77.00.
The object of cultish adoration for years, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams is universally hailed as a major talent by both critics and fellow musicians. With a meticulous attention to detail and a staunch adherence to her own vision, even Williams’ simplest songs are rich in literary detail, from her poetic imagery to her flawed, conflicted characters.
The Band Perry will perform at the AMP on Thursday, May 26 at 8pm, (gates open at 6pm). Tickets go on sale Friday, February 25 at 9am and range from $17.00 to $77.00.
Inheriting a cross-pollinated love of country and rock & roll from their parents, The Band Perry – siblings Kimberly, Reid, and Neil Perry – say that they bleed the bright red blood of American music. The three have always felt the drive to perform and create music, sweating out the summers in Mobile, Alabama playing in any dusty roadhouse or church that would have them. Since their humble beginnings, the band has gone on to produce hits like “Hip to My Heart,” “If I Die Young” and “You Lie.”
Primus will perform at the AMP on Friday, May 27. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 11 at 9am and range from $17.00 to $77.00.
The Northern California avant-rock trio Primus fuses the skittering rhythmic attack of progressive-metal bands like Rush, the groove of funk and hippie rock and the eccentricity of such experimental artists as Frank Zappa and the Residents. Fronted by bassist and vocalist Les Claypool, who can produce thousands of bizarre tones on his instrument and almost as many cartoonish characters with his voice, Primus has journeyed from the underground music scene to mainstream success.
Tickets to any of these concerts can be purchased by calling the Walton Arts Center Box Office at 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.
