The concert is at The Riverside Theater on Friday, July 23, at 8 p.m. Tickets are for the $45 price point of seating, and will be distributed on a "best available" basis by order of purchase at the Riverside's box office starting on July 22.

For nearly three decades, Natalie Merchant has captured the attention of cochlea with her musical contributions, spending 12 years as the lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs before breaking out on a successful solo career in 1993. Merchant brings her unmistakable voice to Milwaukee with a concert featuring hits such as Because the Night, Carnival, These are Days, and Kind & Generous. She is currently touring in support of her newest album, Leave Your Sleep, a collection of famous poetry set to music that's proven far more successful than Robert Frost's ill-fated rockabilly album, And Miles to Go Before I Quit Shakin' My Pelvis.

The Riverside is an opulent auditorium that holds more than 2,000 people in an acoustically bravura setting. Bring along your musical soulmate or call up a fellow Maniac-maniac for a night of rich and rewarding music, courtesy of Natalie Merchant.

Reviews

Natalie Merchant's latest album, Leave Your Sleep, has been reviewed by Reuters, and received a 4.5-star average rating from Amazon.com users. The Guardian caught one of Merchant's recent shows, and The Riverside has received a 4.5-star average from six Yelpers:

  • This is an evening of the magical power of words and music: at 46, Merchant may be in her prime. – Dave Simpson, Guardian
  • …the album soars with gorgeous folk arrangements and Merchant's daring creativity. – Reuters
  • The complexities of the arrangements and the music itself make it something far more mature, almost encyclopedic in its exploration of different musical genres. It really is an amazing record. – O. MICHAEL, Amazon

The Riverside Theater

As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.

Had a great time at the Three Dog Night show at the Pabst Theater. Great venue for a show, the sound was fantastic, and Three Dog Night put out great energy into all of their hit songs. I had an excellent time at the Pabst Theater on a previous occasion so I recommend it.
