Malmsteen is one of the leading electric guitar players in music history. He gained prominence in the early 1980s, when his first solo album, “Rising Force,” won Best Rock Album from Guitar Player Magazine and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental. A string of successful albums followed, highlighted by Malmsteen’s neoclassical metal style of play, drawing inspiration from composers such as Bach, Paganini and Vivaldi. Malmsteen has released more than 20 studio albums throughout his career and, in 2009, he was rated among the 10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players ever by Time magazine.

Tickets start at $45.

Ambrosia gained steady radio play and was one of the leading live acts from the mid-1970s to the early ‘80s. Their early music, including popular albums “Ambrosia” and “Somewhere I’ve Never Travelled,” were filled with Progressive Rock songs highlighted by lush orchestration. Songs such as “Can’t Let a Woman” and “Holdin’ On To Yesterday” were popular on the airwaves. The band also scored a hit with its remake of the Beatles’ “Magical Mystery Tour.” Ambrosia veered more toward a jazz/R&B sound in the latter part of the ‘70s, a move that produced their biggest pop hits, including “How Much I Feel” and later “Biggest Part of Me” and “You’re The Only Woman (You & I).”

Tickets start at $45.

Secada is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter who rose to stardom in the early 1990s and continues to work with some of music’s biggest hit-makers. His self-titled debut album in 1991 sold more than 6 million copies, powered by the hit songs “Just Another Day,” “Angel,” “I’m Free” and “Do You Believe in Us.” Secada’s success continued with 1994’s “Heart, Soul and Voice,” and 1995’s “Amor,” each of which produced Top 10 hit singles. In addition to his own hits, Secada has written and produced songs for such superstars as Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin.
