FISH CREEK, WI (July 12, 2016) – On Wednesday, July 20, four-time Grammy winner and country/Americana icon Lyle Lovett will return to the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) stage. Lovett played to an enthusiastic, sold-out Fish Creek house last year. For his return performance, Lovett will again be accompanied by his legendary Large Band, which this year will include a ten-piece choir.
Lyle Lovett has created his own style of American music in a career that spans 14 albums and more than four million records sold. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, the Texas-based Lovett has defied convention by fusing elements of blues, country, folk, gospel and jazz with a gift for storytelling, as evidenced by such hits as “If I Had a Boat,” “She’s No Lady,” and “My Baby Don’t Tolerate.”
At DCA, Lovett will perform with his renowned Large Band, featuring over a dozen brass players, multiple string players, and a ten-piece choir. Together, Lovett and his band will hoot, rock, and rollick.
According to the New York Times, “Lyle Lovett can make any song sound like a small tragedy. His pained, honeyed voice, with its bluesy turns and its countryish ache, fills every line with sincerity; his unhurried, deadpan delivery gives every line the air of an intimate confession.”
Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades (in addition the four Grammy Awards), Lovett was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.
Garden & Gun recently called Lovett “one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters,” and Lovett was featured in the coveted “What I’ve Learned” column in the February 2012 issue of Esquire.
Lyle Lovett’s performance is made possible by major sponsors Bill Calkins, The Doerr Family, and Main Street Market, as well as supporting sponsor The Cordon Family Foundation.
Lyle Lovett will perform at DCA at 8pm on Wednesday, July 20. Tickets for the concert range from $78 to $98. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made through the DCA box office, located at 3926 Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday-Friday, 12-5pm. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the phone at 920.868.2728, or online at www.dcauditorium.org.
