Last month, the rock act Alter Bridge released their sixth studio album, Walk the Sky, which includes the singles “Wouldn’t You Rather” and “Take the Crown.” Shortly after, the band embarked on a European tour with Shinedown, Sevendust, and The Raven Age to support this barnburner of a release.
The boys won’t have a whole lot of time to catch their breath when they return to the homeland as they recently announced a string of U.S. dates kicking off late January. One of those stops includes an appearance at The Clyde Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
While you history buffs celebrate our 16th President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, us rockers will celebrate with undoubtedly one of the hardest-working, fastest-rising stars in the rock business today. Whether you’re into heavy driving anthems or softer, heartfelt songs, Alter Bridge delivers the goods.
Joining the band on the “Walk the Sky” tour will be Clint Lowery (Sevendust, Dark New Day) and Deepfall. This is an all-ages show with general admission tickets going on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15. They can be purchased at Clydetheatre.com, at (800) 514-3849, or in person at the Clyde, Sweetwater Sound, all three Wooden Nickel locations, and Neat Neat Neat Records.
In This Moment Comes April
The very same day, The Clyde Theatre also announced that the theatrical metal group In This Moment will embrace the stage on Tuesday, April 14, along with Black Veil Brides, DED, and Raven Black.
In This Moment was recently in town opening for Disturbed at Memorial Coliseum but we can expect a much longer headlining set come April. That’s great news because In This Moment gets the audience engrossed in colorful stage lighting, constant outfit changes by the charismatic vocalist Maria Brink, fog machines, and an array of other visual effects that set the tone for each song. Tickets for this show also goes on sale at 10 a.m. on Nov. 15.
Comedian Comes to town in December
Avid listeners of The Bob & Tom Show know the name Josh Arnold. The comedian joined the show in 2016, replacing Scott Potasnik after several weeks of guest hosting. Being named Best Male Comedian in the St. Louis area in 2011 probably had helped him land the once-in-a-lifetime gig.
You have opportunity to see Arnold in person when he makes his way to town on Saturday, Dec. 7, to do stand-up at the Fort Wayne Comedy Club, 2104 Calhoun St., along with Dylan Vattelana. There will be two shows, 7:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Tickets are available through Fortwaynecomedyclub.com.
Chance of Sunny at Christmas on Broadway
Catch the talented Sunny Taylor performing at Trubble Brewing at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22. This performance is the same evening as the 15th annual Christmas on Broadway which takes place right out front of the brewery. From 5-7:30 p.m., Christmas on Broadway will feature train rides, hot chocolate, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, fireworks, and the lighting of the magnificent 40-foot tall blue spruce tree. Plenty of fun, but afterwards make a point to head indoors for an evening with Sunny.
Speaking of Trubble Brewing, they are about to celebrate four years of supplying us with fascinating food, tasty brews, and of course fun. To celebrate, they will have an array of exciting festivities taking place Nov. 27-Dec. 1 including an anniversary beer release, karaoke, Black Friday Brunch, and live music by Buffalo Nichols, Middle Names, and Olde 441 (Felix Moxter, Bigsby Lysaght, Dave Nelson, and Josh Clement). Here’s to many more!
