James Taylor at Hollywood Bowl

James Taylor

In a career that started off with a bang in 1960's NYC, by way of Swingin' London and a cool collaboration with the Beatles, it was 1970 that brought Sweet Baby James (and his eponymous record) to public notice, displaying an epic and haunting maturity that seemed far beyond his 22 years and leading to his becoming part of a peerless group that defined that era, including Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and many more.

Doobie Brothers at Kia Forum

Doobie Brothers

Blue-eyed soul and soft rockers The Doobie Brothers have become an indelible part of the American musical landscape, making their mark as a durable and resilient band that fearlessly embraces genres ranging from RnB to classic rock and boogie.

Joe Jackson at Orpheum Theater

Joe Jackson

Emerging into the music world in the late seventies/early eighties, Joe Jackson first hit it big with his track "Is She Really Going Out With Him?", followed up by the classic "Steppin' Out". Now the English singer-songwriter is back on North American stages in summer 2024 on his extensive 'The Two Rounds Of Racket' tour. With the evening split into two stages, fans can expect to hear some of Jackon's iconic classics, alongside tunes from his new album 'What A Racket' that plays tribute to Max Champion, a lost voice from the British Music Hall genre of the early 20th century.

The Teskey Brothers at Greek Theater

The Teskey Brothers

Award-winning Aussie blues-rock band The Teskey Brothers are set to take the nation by storm with the second leg of The Winding Way Tour! Formed in 2008 by brothers Josh and Sam Teskey, the band went from playing house parties and the streets of Melbourne to selling out venues across the world. Drawing deep from the spirit of blues (citing B.B. King and Otis Redding as inspirations) the group embodies the soul of ages past and brings it to the current era in a beautifully refreshing way. Known for selling out shows, act quickly and don't miss your chance to have your heartstrings tugged at by the soulful Teskey Brothers!

Jacob Collier at Greek Theater

Jacob Collier

At the age of 17, London-based crossover jazz muso Jacob Collier gained a firm international following thanks to his uploads of multi-track, one-man covers of classic songwriters like Bacharach, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as well as experimental originals. The inspiring young musician managed to parlay this early success into a budding career, based on a keen ear for jazz harmony and arrangement, that's seen him graduate from Youtube prodigy to veteran performer with stints on the stages of prestigious venues like London's Royal Albert Hall and beyond.
