Aaron Neville's Christmas Show Plays Walt Disney Concert Hall, 12/18


Celebrating the season with New Orleans holiday cheer, Aaron Neville brings his signature vibrato and unique voice to Christmas carols, R&B favorites and some classic pop tunes for a special one-night-only performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 8 PM. Tickets go on sale Sunday, August 19, 2012.

Over the past five decades, Aaron Neville’s unmistakable voice, familiar to millions of fans worldwide, has energized concert halls worldwide. Since his first chart success with the #1 single "Tell It Like It Is,” and through his work with the musical dynasty known as the Neville Brothers, Aaron has remained a soulful musical force for over 50 years in recorded music.

On his 2010 release, I Know I’ve Been Changed, Neville returned to the music he loved first—gospel music—and reunited with Allen Toussaint, the legendary songwriter, musician and producer who produced Aaron’s first recording session in 1960. Producer Joe Henry and Neville recorded I Know I’ve Been Changed over a period of five days, using a stripped-down approach to showcase the strength and beauty of Neville’s vocals. On this project Aaron Neville captured the spirit of New Orleans—reflecting the hope of his hometown, drawing from his faith to spread hope through his music.

In the Fall of 2012, Neville will make his Blue Note Records debut with a full-length album of classic material from the doo-wop era produced by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and Blue Note President Don Was.
