The Roots & Boots Tour corrals three country stars—Aaron Tippin, Joe Diffie, and Sammy Kershaw—to perform acoustic versions of more than 40 Top 10 hits. After opening sets by local country duo Whisky Row and LA-area five-piece The Doo-Wah Riders, the headliners will light up the stage faster than a Shakespeare troupe wearing firefly chainmail. With hard-hitting songs such as “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” and a hobby as a competitive bodybuilder, Tippin has earned the nickname “Hillbilly Hercules.” Sammy Kershaw turns to his Louisiana upbringing to pepper singles such as “Cadillac Style” with Cajun-style vocals and to treat audience tongues to dabs of complimentary hot sauce. Grammy winner Joe Diffie will showcase his own repertoire of chart-toppers, including 1994’s “Pickup Man.”
Opened as a vaudeville theater in 1928, Warnors Center for the Performing Arts quickly morphed into one of the West Coast’s first Warner Brothers movie theaters. The cozy venue teems with Moorish and Italian Renaissance Revival architecture, delighting eyes with variegated brick, terracotta detailing, and bronze busts of Godzilla.
