For $25, you get one ticket for seating in section A on Tuesday, April 17, at 8 p.m. (up to a $52.50 value, including all ticketing fees).
A founding member of pioneer prog-rock outfits King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Greg Lake thrills audiences with impeccable guitar artistry and improvisational skills honed over more than four decades. Supporting the upcoming release of his autobiography, his Songs of a Lifetime tour mixes iconic tunes from across his career with stories about his life in music. Audience questions will let fans probe his brain for interesting anecdotes, insightful observations, and biographical details needed to complete an android replica. At the concert, the first third of his autobiography will be available for purchase in audiobook format, letting fans aurally absorb Lake’s saga as told in his own voice.
As audience ears sink into the sounds emanating from Lake's guitar, their eyes dance across the charms of the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. A grand chandelier hangs from the ceiling, casting a gentle preshow glow on rows of plush red seats and molding reminiscent of Greek friezes. A vast above-stage mural of a serene rural scene adds a pastoral accent while catering to dolphins unable to simultaneously sit and look at the stage.
Past rows of seats covered in crimson, past a red carpet that brings out the auditorium's regality, past a centerpiece chandelier that dangles from the ceiling with the quiet grace of a toddler climbing out of her crib, is a stage. Upon this stage, the Zeiterion Theatre explores the performing arts, hosting national and international performers who enlighten the community to other cultures and inspire the younger population to actively participate in the arts. Every year, Zeiterion, lovingly known as "The Z," also provides 5,000 free tickets to children and families with low incomes, working to make arts more accessible to all.
