Thomas Burrows, executive director of the Center for the Arts, said, "While we usually do not book performances during the summer months when many Western New Yorkers turn their attention to outdoor entertainment, the opportunity to present this incredible artist was too good to pass. We're especially pleased to share this news at a time when so much positive news is coming out of the University at Buffalo."
The Center for the Arts also will present musical parody legend "Weird Al" Yankovic July 15. Limited seats remain for the concert and may be purchased at the center box office and tickets.com. More details are available at www.ubcfa.org.
