Looking Ahead: Sara Bareilles SOLD OUT; The Steel Wheels Perform Friday

May 20, 2013

This is a great week for music and I’ve got the scoop for you.

Sara Bareilles may have sold out within hours of announcing her upcoming concert in Booth Playhouse, but there are still tickets remaining for The Steel Wheels with special guest Ana Egge.

  • Sara Bareilles – The Brave Enough Tour – Special Solo Performance – SOLD OUT

Charlotte is pleased to welcome the return of multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles as she embarks on a solo acoustic trek titled the Brave Enough tour in support of her highly anticipated third studio album this summer through Epic Records. Recorded in Los Angeles and New York with producers including John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric) and Mark Endert (Fiona Apple, The Fray, Train), this album will continue to display Sara’s signature voice and stellar songwriting. The album’s first single “Brave” is on iTunes.

“I have never felt more open and more raw in my entire life. 2012 was a year of deconstruction for me personally,” said Bareilles. “I have been confronting some of my greatest fears in the last handful of months and have been amazed at how empowered I can feel when I muster up the courage to turn and growl back at those monsters under the bed. The songs on this album are a true reflection of everything I’ve come to experience in recent months and I’m going to celebrate that with the next most terrifying thing I can do…go back on the road…totally alone. Just me. And my piano. And maybe a guitar. And some whiskey. And some jokes. And my songs. I’m excited to share this next stage of my career with each and every one of my fans.”

This show is sold out. There is a possibility tickets may be returned. Please call the box office at 704-372-1000 for ticket availability.

  • The Steel Wheels with special guest Ana Egge – Friday

The Steel Wheels are truly an Americana band, rooted in musical styles that explore the territories between blues and bluegrass, old-time sing-alongs and foot-stompin’ fiddle tunes. They are subtle innovators who respect the past but whistle their own tunes, layering in rich textures and decidedly modern energy to forge a new sound. They are performing this Friday, May 24, in McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square.

“Imagine a blend of the passion of the Avett Brothers, the instrumentals of Old Crow Medicine Show, and then sprinkle in the backwoods feel of The Legendary Shack Shakers. In truth, attempting to compare [The Steel Wheels] to anyone is an injustice, since after one listen you can hear that they stand very well on their own perch.” — John Walker, Americana Roots

The band shines exceptionally in their live shows, and their palpable chemistry translates easily to their latest album Red Wing, which garnered critic’s praise and was met with tremendous success on the radio. It spent 13 weeks on the Americana Music Association Top 40 radio charts, topping out at #15 as well as cracking the top 10 of the EuroAmericana charts. Red Wing ranked #70 of the top 100 Americana albums of 2010 and #2 of all independent releases (Americana Music Association).
