The Dan Tyminski Band will be on tour throughout 2022 in support of two forthcoming projects: an EP celebrating Tony Rice’s legacy, and a full-length bluegrass album due out later next year. The Dan Tyminski Band is Adam Steffey (mandolin, 5x Grammy Winner, 9x IBMA Mandolin Player Of The Year), Maddie Denton (fiddle), Jason Davis (banjo), Grace Davis (bass) and Gaven Largent (dobro). Throughout his 30+ year career, Tyminski has left his mark in every corner of modern music. Tyminski’s voice famously accompanies George Clooney’s performance of the Stanley Brothers’ classic song “I am a Man of Constant Sorrow” in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou, and his vocal collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii on the song “Hey, Brother” was a global smash, having been streamed more than 1 billion times to date. In addition to his highly successful solo career, Tyminski has played guitar and mandolin for Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1994.

Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in IRON MAIDEN, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.

A true polymath, his accomplishments include: pilot and airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, beer brewer, motivational speaker, podcaster, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and New York Times Top 10 best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor, sports commentator and international fencer… to name but a few.

So, there’s plenty to be entertained by, throughout the evening’s cornucopia of fascinating tales and derring-do exploits, all delivered by Bruce with characteristically infectious enthusiasm and wry wit.

Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective, treating the audience to private insights into his drive and ambition, peppered with plenty of Maiden anecdotes, and a myriad of other experiences encompassing not just the giddy heights but also the extreme lows, told first-hand in his inimitable anarchic style, punctuated with photographs and sometimes even erupting into song a-capella, to illustrate a point. 

The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. As Bruce’s answers will all be completely improvised – the more left-field and quirky the question, the more interesting and compelling the response is likely to be!

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to spend an up-close and personal evening with one of the world’s most captivating icons in an intimate environment, as Bruce Dickinson brings his Evening With show to the U.S. for the very first time, where you are guaranteed a highly entertaining and enjoyable night out and may even go home inspired to try something new.

Carolina Ballet is proud to perform once again the beloved tale of Romeo & Juliet. Set to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, Weiss’ ballet is a faithful retelling that expresses all the drama and pathos, action and tenderness, humor and heartbreak found in this legendary story.

Filled with dramatic sword fights, stunning costumes, lush scenery and breathtaking dance, this ballet underscores the emotion of Shakespeare’s powerful play and brings to life the love, longing and loss of this epic tragedy.
