Colin Hay

7:30 pm

AMP Concerts presents Colin Hay. Hay first came to prominence as the lead vocalist of Men at Work, which was formed in 1979 and went on to become a multi-platinum-selling musical act, winning a Grammy for best new artist in 1982. The original band was short-lived, however, and after 1985 Hay became primarily a solo artist. He has written and released some 13 solo albums, the latest being I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself, an album of cover material. With a new album of original material due for release in early 2022, Hay is also a touring member of Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band, scheduled to resume touring in 2022.

Tickets on sale for AMP members starting on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at 10 am with promo code, and on sale to the general public Friday, October 8, 2021 at 10 am.

Emporium & JAW Present Tommy Emmanuel

8 pm (doors open at 7 pm)

$43, no discounts

“Songs are our teachers. They show us the depth of the human race and its unrelenting desire to create.”—Tommy Emmanuel

Any time you talk to any of Tommy Emmanuel’s fans, whether musicians or audience members, invariably they will speak of not one but two qualities that define his greatness. The first, predictably, is his extraordinary guitar playing.  Tommy is considered by those in the know to be among this planet’s greatest guitarists, and his playing is simply miraculous, as it would take three musicians, or more, to do what he does solo. Who else, for example, when playing “Day Tripper,” can lay down the rhythm part, dig into the riff, and sing the melody all at once with just one acoustic guitar?
