Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions. An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless the chief architect of the 90's grunge movement with his work with Soundgarden. Fronting the rock group Audioslave, he produced some of the most acclaimed rock albums of the early 2000's. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy Award-winning musician and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter and lyricist.

Premier Concerts presents
The Warren Haynes Band
November 18 | 7:30pm

Warren Haynes' long-anticipated, soul-inspired Man In Motion will be released May 10th on STAX/Concord Music Group. The new album demonstrates his relentless creative drive on some of his most emotionally powerful vocals and lush, vivid writing to date. Haynes is joined by soul and R&B kingpins George Porter, Jr., Ian McLagan, Ruthie Foster, Ivan Neville, and others. Man In Motion will be the star's first solo album after many recent career highlights including: Gov't Mule's hit singles "Beautifully Broken," "Soulshine," "Slackjaw Jezebel" and "Frozen Fear"; their platinum-selling CD/DVD The Deepest End; Haynes's solo live acoustic CD, Live at Bonnaroo, recorded live from America's largest festival's main stage and The Allman Brothers Band's Hittin' the Note, their "best recording since Eat a Peach" which Haynes produced, co-wrote and on which he performed. Haynes, a Grammy-winner and 9-time nominee, is ranked 23rd on Rolling Stone Magazine's Greatest Guitarists Of All Time list. He is the front-man for Gov't Mule as well as vocalist and guitarist for The Allman Brothers Band and The Dead.

John Pinette

Friday, Oct 14 | 8pm
An actor and stand-up comedian, he has toured the Comedy Club circuit since the 1980s and has appeared in cinema and television. Named Stand-Up Comedian of the Year by the American Comedy Awards in 1999, he was also nominated for a Gemini Award for his television performance at The Montreal Comedy Festival in 2000. Pinette's acting career includes roles alongside Gwenyth Paltrow, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and John Travolta. When describing his own stand-up, Pinette says "I talk about my life; it is the funniest thing I can think of." His current comedy special, "I'm Starvin'," is a follow up to his successful comedy CD, "Show Me the Buffet." "I'm Starvin'" illustrates the humor in America's obsession with food and being fat.

The Rocky Horror Show
Oct 15-29
Back by popular demand! The play that inspired the cult film is the risque tale of straight-laced lovebirds who seek
refuge in an eerie mansion up the street. Mature themes and content.

Indigo Girls

Friday, Oct 21 | 8pm
Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze conventional pundits with their ability to grow and thrive no matter what the state of the music industry is at any given point. Saliers and Ray began performing together in high school, transferred their honest, urgent performing style onto the stages of countless small clubs, then saw their public profile take off with the 1989 release of their self-titled breakthrough (an album that included the first hit, "Closer To Fine," and went on to win Best Contemporary Folk Recording at the 1990 Grammys).
