Huge news for the concert-inclined in the Inland Northwest: Neutral Milk Hotel, Sheryl Crow and Widespread Panic are booked to play the area in 2015. Earlier this week, we reported on upcoming Lucinda Williams and comedian Doug Benson shows.
Yesterday, the alt-rock act Neutral Milk Hotelannounced its upcoming tour would be its final one. Prior to getting back together in 2013, the group had practically been in hiding for nearly a decade, leaving fans to wallow in their sorrows listening to the only two albums the band ever made on repeat. But this summer, Spokane rock lovers can rejoice, the group performs at the Knitting Factory on June 5. Tickets are $32.
Sheryl Crow “Makes You Happy” by hitting up Beasley Coliseum for Washington State University’s Mom’s Weekend on April 11. The nine-time Grammy winner hasn’t performed at the Coliseum since 1996 so it’s high time she comes through again, singing her brand of Americana pop. Tickets are priced at $60.50 for the public and $55.50 for WSU staff, faculty and students and go on sale January 16. Just a friendly reminder: Crow used to date Lance Armstrong.
Calling all Dead Heads and other jam band enthusiasts! The 1980s neo-hippie Southern rock band Widespread Panic comes to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox March 15. Oh yes, the band that as of last year holds the record for most sold-out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater runs its famous live show (which notably never has the same setlist twice) through Spokane. Tickets are $45 and go on sale next month.
