Tickets went on sale yesterday afternoon for LVA members with first dibs, with general public access to follow next Saturday (Sept. 24).
First up is American blues rock band The Fabulous Thunderbirds, perhaps best known for their '80s hits "Tuff Enuff" and "Wrap It Up".
"For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band: the group's distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid," LVA officials said.
The band will be on the Bankhead Theater stage in downtown Livermore at 8 p.m. March 17.
Then the next week, Tri-Valley residents can enjoy the eclectic music of 11-time Grammy winner Linda Ronstadt as performed by Ronstadt Revue with singer Gesenia and a special appearance by Ronstadt's former band director Beland. Ronstadt, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member who has retired from performing herself, sold more than 100 million albums in her career across country, rock, Latin, Motown and Broadway.
"Fortunately, Ms. Ronstadt's musical legacy now lives on through the stunning talents of Gesenia and her Ronstadt Revue. Ronstadt Revue shows, performed in painstaking detail in both English and Spanish, span every musical genre of Ms. Ronstadt's 40-plus year career," LVA officials said.
Ronstadt Revue will be in Livermore at 7:30 p.m. March 22.
As the calendar turns to April, the one and only Charo will bring her singing, performing, classical guitar playing and storytelling talents to the Bankhead.
"This household name musician, singer, comedienne, and stage and screen performer has been an integral proponent of contemporary Latin music," LVA officials said. "Instantly recognizable for her witty humor, lovable accent, and her mastery of the flamenco guitar, it is Charo's trademark expression 'Cuchi-Cuchi,' which has endeared her to the world and made the name Charo synonymous with fun and excitement."
Charo will appear at the Bankhead at 7:30 p.m. April 3.
