UPAC & the Bardavon Announce New Concerts
Santana is slated to play the annual fundraising gala concert at The Bardavon in Poughkeepsie on Sunday, April 10. Led by Carlos Santana – virtuoso guitarist, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and 10-time Grammy Award-winner – the band is playing the intimate theater just three days before landing in Madison Square Garden.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday (February 26), priced at $150 & $225; $275 VIP (including premiere seating and post-concert party). Proceeds help underwrite the Bardavon’s education series and school residencies that bring artists and musicians to local schools, ambitious symphony concerts, special senior events and more.
Meanwhile, there are also a couple of newly announced concerts for the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston. Comedian-actor Kevin James (“The King of Queens,” “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”) steps into the spotlight for an evening of stand-up at 7pm on Friday, April 29. Tickets are on sale now priced at $43-$63; $80 Gold Circle.
Also coming to UPAC are The Rides – a new, blues-rock supergroup featuring two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills, five-time Grammy nominee Kenny Wayne Shepherd and veteran keyboardist Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag, Bob Dylan at Newport) – who make their Greater Nippertown debut at 8pm on Friday, May 13. Tickets are on sale now priced at $64-$74; $94 VIP.
