Riviera Theatre has Gaelic Storm and a Queen tributeby jmaloni
The Historic Riviera Theatre presents Gaelic Storm a 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, for one performance only.
While Gaelic Storm plays Celtic music that hearkens back to the traditional music of Ireland, they are hardly traditionalist, adding modern sounds and drawing influences from American rock and pop as well as music styles from around the world. This is a band with its feet firmly planted in the present, appearing on two EA Sports Games and their song "Kiss Me I'm Irish" has been used in a Hallmark greeting card in 2008. The band has made countless television and radio appearances, and there are official videos and heaps of fan-posted live YouTube clips (Often with the crowd singing as loud as the band).
General admission tickets are $25 to $30,
•The Riv presents "One Night of Queen" performed by Gary Mullen & The Works on Sunday, March 25, at 7 p.m.
The show is described as a spectacular live concert recreating the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of arguably the greatest rock band of all time. Featuring such hits as "I Want to Break Free," "A Kind of Magic," "Fat Bottomed Girls" and - of course - "Bohemian Rhapsody."
Tickets are $25 to $30.
For further information on either show, call the Riviera Theatre box office at 692-2413.
