Summer at Sands heats up as the “Sweeter” sounds of of Gavin DeGraw and “Bubbly” songstress Colbie Caillat come to the Sands Bethlehem Events Center stage in Bethlehem, PA on Tuesday, June 5 at 7pm. Just a few days after its late June kickoff, the DeGraw/Caillat tour is not the traditional opener-plus-main-act show — it’s two-for-one double feature in which both artists co-headline the night, with Andy Grammer as warm-up.
Both pop-rock singer-songwriters will be showcasing tunes from 2011 albums. DeGraw’s “Sweeter” spawned the Adult Pop Songs No. 1 “Not Over You,” earlier this year just a few months after Caillat’s “All Of You” single “Brighter Than The Sun” became her seventh top 10 on the same chart.
Legendary Loretta Lynn brings country to Pennsylvania with a one-night-only stand at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center on Saturday, June 9. Lynn has been a music icon for several decades, but it’s only this summer that the Country Music Hall of Famer is bringing half a century of hits and concerts to bear as part of her special 50th Anniversary Tour.
So whether you’ve been listening since Lynn came into the spotlight in ink, since her life and music made the phrase “Coal Miner’s Daughter” a cultural touchpoint in the 70s and early 80s (with a famed hit song, autobiography and film), or if you have become aware of her one of a kind sound since Jack White produced her 2004 album “Van Lear Rose,” the icon’s show is sure to please.
In the midst of a world tour, legendary trio Crosby, Stills and Nash are bringing their classic harmonies to theaters and pavilions across America this summer. Just two weeks into the massive, 50+ date U.S. jaunt, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, will headilne at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on June 24, backed by a full band.
Grammy-winning CSN, whose self-titled 1969 debut spawned the classics “Marrakesh Express” and “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” have earned two Hot 100 top 10s (“Just A Song Before I Go” in 1977 and “Wasted on The Way” in 1982) in their 40-plus year career together. It’s this rich history that the trio draws upon for its shows.
Noted activists, the trio is donating $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. tour to a charity, as well as providing table space to a number of charitable organizations including The Algalita Marine Research Foundation, the Alliance for a Green Economy, and Autism Speaks — where fans can get more information on participation and donation.
This Friday night, the big guitars take over Bethlehem, Penn. when Ted Nugent, and Styx bring their co-headlining tour to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center.
Dubbed “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express,” the tour touches down at Sands on June 28 at 8pm with Chicago-bred prog pros Styx, who came to the musical fore in the mid-70s with power ballads including “Come Sail Away” and “Babe.”
And of course, Motor City Madman Nugent comes to Sands ready to unleash his axe-grinding classics like 1977’s “Cat Scratch Fever,” 1980’s “Wango Tango” and 1986’s “Little Miss Dangerous.”
In the midst of a U.S. tour that finds the platinum-selling Athens, Ga. band rocking across the country through mid-September, the B-52s bring their party to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Tuesday, July 17 at 7pm alongside Squeeze.
Now marking its 35th anniversary, the new-wave-meets-’60s garage-rock-tinged quartet rose to fame from the same northern Georgia music scene that produced R.E.M. From 1978’s “Rock Lobster” (which inspired John Lennon to get back into the studio to make “Double Fantasy”) through early ’80s keystones like “Private Idaho,” the B-52s have been the quintessential summertime soundtrack. With the key interplay of male (Fred Schneider) and female (Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson) vocals and the surf-inspired sounds of guitarist Keith Strickland, the B’s true breakthrough didn’t come until its 1989 smash album, “Cosmic Thing,” which produced a pair of Hot 100 No. 3 hits “Love Shack” and “Roam.”
Rather than rest there, in recent years the band has returned to the studio, turning out the well-received “Funplex” in 2008, which debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200, and remaining on the road ever since.
Joining the B-52s at the Sands are English rockers Squeeze, who came to the fore during the same late ’70s period that saw the B-52s’ initial rise. Well known for melodic hits like 1981’s “Tempted” and 1980’s “Pulling Mussels (From The Shell),” the band in its present incarnation is led by key songwriters and original members Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford.
Four rootsy, rocking bands with over 20 years of prowess each earning fans largely through lauded live shows after big ’90s hits. One big night. Dubbed the “Last Summer on Earth Tour,” Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Cracker will touch down at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pa. on Aug. 17 for a very full Friday night of rock and roll.
Headliners Barenaked Ladies, who reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 with 1998’s “One Week” and who are responsible for the theme song to the hit TV show “The Big Bang Theory,” are supporting recent rarities collection “Stop Us If You’ve Heard This One Before.”
Blues Traveler came into the spotlight with songs like “Run-Around” (top 10 on the Hot 100 in 1995) and frontman John Popper’s, yes, bluesy harmonica skills. But they’ve been busy in recent years as well. The “Last Summer on Earth” tour finds them with a brand new album “Suzie Cracks The Whip” ready to play.
Colorado’s Big Head Todd and the Monsters, who thrived in the same mid-90’s H.O.R.D.E tour-friendly boom of jammy bands that Blues Traveller did boast a platinum album (1993’s “Sister Sweetly”) and 25 years of moving audiences.
Like Big Head Todd, Alt-rockers Cracker saw its star rise with a hit 1993 album (the gold-certified “Kerosene Hat” which spawned hit “Low”) and has been on the road and in and out of the studio ever since.
The Offspring are back with the appropriately titled “Days Go By,” the California punk stalwarts’ first album in four years — and they’re back on the road as well, bringing a hard-rocking set of favorites to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Sept. 8.
The Offspring has a two-decade career of hits to bring to bear Saturday night Sands, including tunes from its breakout album Smash, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 00 in 1994, and rock radio hits including “Self Esteem,” “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy),” and “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid.”
The Sands show finds the Dexter Holland led quartet in the midst of a U.S. tour that runs through October 6 before jumping the ocean and landing in Japan on October 15 and Australia in February.
While they’ve been rocking since the ’70s, the sisters that form the soul of Heart are in the midst of a resurgence in 2012 centered on a lauded new album, “Fanatic,” which was just released October 2, and a memoir, called “Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll.”
Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, who have seen classics like “Barracuda,” “Magic Man,” and “Alone” spend plenty of quality time on the Hot 100, bring all this to bear when their “Fanatic” tour hits the Sands Bethlehem Events Center on October 13 at 7pm.
The sisters, whose band has earned eight multi-platinum albums in its long career, have also just been named one of the nominees for the 2013 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
To kick off this special evening at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center, veteran Austin, Texas Alejandro Escovedo and the Sensitive Boys will be the opening band for Heart.
Riding high on their 2011 studio album, Twenty, the men of Boyz II Men are bringing over two decades of their flavor of modern Philly Soul to the Sands Bethlehem Events Center on Oct. 20.
The Saturday night gig, which starts at 8pm, comes in the midst of the R&B act’s extensive North American tour, which runs all the way through mid-April of 2013 where it winds up in Brampton, Ontario.
What’s in store at the Sands show? Among the groups many multi-platinum albums (including 1991’s “Cooleyhighharmony” and 1994’s “II”), the group’s has scored time and time again with huge harmony-laden ballads like “End Of The Road,” “I’ll Make Love To You,” and “On Bended Knee,” all three of which reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 in the mid-’90s.
It’s going to be a special Thanksgiving weekend at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center as none other than Cheap Trick — they of the double-necked guitars and pick-wielding rock — are set to brighten the venue at 7pm on Nov. 24, the Saturday after Turkey Day.
The guys are sure to come armed with their signature songs, including “Surrender,” I Want You To Want Me” and more. Cheap Trick comes to the Sands in a special headlining set they’ve made sure to fit in between dates opening for Aerosmith on that band’s current “Global Warming” tour. This is one of the only chances left this year to catch Cheap Trick in a more intimate, more Cheap Trick-centric setting.
Cheap Trick brings 16 albums, nearly 40 years of tunes, and a reputation for great live shows to bear when they touch down at the Sands. And it’s a Saturday night, to boot. What’s not to like?
