Ringo Starr, Todd Rundgren, Boz Scaggs, k.d. lang among summer acts set for Beaver Creek's Vilar Center
As a true indication that summer is just around the corner, the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) recently announced six headlining concerts coming to its 530-seat Beaver Creek theater throughout the summer months. Additional concerts will be announced in the weeks to come.
The 2012 Summer Concert Series will kick off on Sunday, July 1 with the return of the Creedence Clearwater Revisited and continues with the first-ever Beaver Creek, and the only Colorado, concert appearance by the iconic Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band on Tuesday, July 10. The former Beatles' 13th All-Starr Band includes Steve Lukather (Toto), Gregg Rolie (Santana/Journey), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera and Gregg Bissonette.
Michael McDonald (Dobbie Brothers/Steely Dan), Donald Fagen (Steely Dan) and Boz Scaggs, touring as the Dukes of September, will come to Beaver Creek on Wednesday, July 11. The Grammy Award-winning artists will perform a mix of blue-eyed soul, rock, jazz and R&B, together on the VPAC stage.
Hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine as "The Queen of Folkabilly," Nanci Griffith will perform material from her twentieth studio album Intersection along with familiar favorites at the VPAC on Thursday, July 12.
August shows include an intimate concert experience with pop/country singer/songwriter k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang on Wednesday, August 1 as well as the much-anticipated return of Diana Krall on Sunday, August 5. Krall's cool, heavy-lidded vocals and strikingly sensitive piano-playing transcend musical genres, establishing her as one of the best-selling artists of her time.
“The truly exciting thing is that this is only the beginning, we look forward to announcing the remainder of the concert season in the coming weeks and guarantee that it is going to be a very special summer at the VPAC,” said Kris Sabel, Executive Director of VPAC.
