Eric Johnson

7:30 pm

AMP Concerts presents Eric Johnson. Eric has been traveling on a prolific odyssey over the course of more than four decades. Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross-pollinates genres including rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new age, classical, and even country. Inevitably, E.J. says it best himself: “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day…. If it doesn’t have that, it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”

$24, $31, $40

Approximate time of event: 2 hours including intermission.

Tickets go on sale to AMP members, Tuesday, March 9, 2022 at 10 am with member promo code. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 11, 2022 at 10 am to the general public.

Since 2014, Black has done over 400 live-streaming shows, called The Rant Is Due, at the end of each of his stand-up performances.
