ON SALE NOW: Comic Craig Gass on March 7
Comedian Craig Gass is scheduled to perform on Saturday, March 7th. Gass, a Tucson native, has appeared as a recurring character on HBO's "Sex and the City" and the now-syndicated "King of Queens," and has just been hired for his vocal talents on "The Family Guy." Impressive. Gass, unrivaled as a celebrity impersonator, is also a regular on "The Howard Stern Show," now heard on Sirius Satellite Radio.
He'll be making the rounds of Tucson radio stations in the weeks to come, and several of his celebrity "endorsers" will be encouraging Tucsonans to catch his one-of-a-kind show on March 7. In other words, don't be surprised if you hear Tom Arnold or Adam Sandler exhorting you to check out Gass here at the Rialto if you happen to catch any local radio in the month or so.
Tickets are available at the Rialto Box Office, by phone at 740-1000, at Zia and Bookmans outlets, and on this very website.

Andrew Bird featured in The New York Times
Andrew Bird is featured in The New York Times, published January 2, 2009. Here is an excerpt from Andrew Bird Discovers His Inner Operatic Folkie:
"Onstage, Bird was engaged in something of a musical high-wire act, whistling, singing and manically shifting from violin to guitar to glockenspiel. All the while, his feet were busy working the pedals of an electronic looping station that recorded and then played back his musical progressions in short intervals. He layered one musical passage on top of another, gradually nudging each song toward its crescendo."
This is what we have to look forward to come Andrew Bird's appearance on Valentine's Day on our stage. It's wonderful to see such a thorough profile of this amazing musician in The New York Times. We hope it successfully fuels your anticipation of his sure-to-be inspiring live performance on Saturday, February 14 as much as it does so for us.
Reserved Tickets are available here.
