ROD STEWART TRIBUTE by Gregory Wolfe hits the ABT stage on July 18, 2016. Gregory’s first taste in music came at a very young age, listening to crooners like Nat King Cole and Andy Williams. He has since taken his act worldwide. From Singapore to South Carolina, and Bangkok to Berlin, Gregory’s entertained them all over the globe! You’ll hear all the great Rod Stewart hits from “Hot Legs,” “Tonight’s the Night,” “Maggie May” and many more.

THOSE BRITISH GIRLS is a hit-filled concert coming August 29, 2016. This show takes you on a journey through the music of the UK’s ready steady female star vocalists of the 1960s through to the chart-topping and record-breaking superstars of today. Britain was the world’s undisputed pop culture hub of the 1960s, and although male groups dominated the UK charts, each of the top four recording labels had their own female superstars, including Petula Clark, Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield, The Spice Girls, Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse…and of course…Adele. Get ready for a night out where the boys take a backseat, and the ladies take center stage.

Tickets available now.  Call the Box Office at 623-776-8400 or buy online at this link.
