Due to popular demand, Bowery Presents has added an Esperanza Spalding show at the Apollo Theater on Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. in addition to her Oct. 26 performance.
Both performances will feature the bassist, vocalist and composer performing songs from her latest album, “Radio Music Society.” These concerts mark Spalding’s debut at the legendary theater and are a part of her world tour. Tickets for the Oct. 27 show went on sale Monday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the Oct. 26 show are already on sale.
Spalding’s prodigious talents as a bassist and singer paved the way for her to become the first jazz musician to win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2011.
“Radio Music Society” is a companion release, rather than a sequel, to the internationally acclaimed “Chamber Music Society,” the basis of her Grammy. “Radio Music Society” is her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital yet. Each of the 12 songs is accompanied by conceptual music videos that further express Spalding’s inspiration and the story behind each track.
Tickets are $40 and $64, and are available at www.apollotheater.org; in person at the Apollo Theater box office; over the phone at 212-531-5305 or 800-745-3000; and at www.ticketmaster.com.
