JESSE COOK HEADLINES THE WILBUR THEATRE ON APRIL 16TH
Boston, MA – Jesse Cook is set to perform The Wilbur Theatre on Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 at 7:30pm
With eight studio albums, several European and Asian tours, multiple Canadian tours, a highly successful Public Television Special, and a recent five-month U.S. tour under his belt, award-winning guitar phenomenon Jesse Cook is set to release yet another Public Television Special, “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre”, on November 30, 2013. In addition, due to an increase in demand from fans for more performances in America, Cook is also pleased to announce a 25-date U.S. tour in April/May of 2014.
“I’m really looking forward to being back in America, touring in support of this Public Television Special,” says Cook. “I’m very proud of this show. The film crew did an amazing job capturing our show. The best one so far!”
“Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will debut on November 30 on WLIW in New York at 11:30pm and air across select Public Television stations through to the end of December. During this time, tickets will be offered exclusively through Public Television Station pledge drives. On January 17, 2014, tickets will also be available through other ticket outlets. For information on air times, please check your local Public Television listings.
Recorded live at the Bathurst Street Theatre in Toronto, Canada, “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will transport viewers from Spain to Morocco, from France to Colombia, and from Africa back home again with more stops in between. Amidst these signature works that explore culture and our fascinating reactions to it, Jesse Cook paces this elegant show with poignant and lyrical works that highlight the diverse strengths of a band that has long been dedicated to Cook’s artistic vision. Among these fluid and transcendent moments come compositions that drive the artists and audience to dizzying heights with forceful, percussive works that demand a visceral response. A few soulful vocals and a rousing finale rounds off the show with the audience literally on their feet singing along, backed by a stage overflowing with Cook’s band, featured guests, and an all female drumming ensemble. Adventurous and epic, the musical exploration found on “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will enlighten, engage, and inspire you.
