Upcoming Concerts Alice Cooper, White Album and more

The upcoming concerts calendar at Celebrity Theatre is packed with exciting shows, including two chances for fans to see classic rockers Styx!

Dec. 6 - It Was 50 Years Ago Today: A Tribute to the Beatles White Album
The artists performing this tribute to the Beatles' 1968 release The Beatles, commonly known as The White Album, will likely never appear together on the same stage again after the tribute tour is over. The all-star lineup includes Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Joey Molland of Badfinger, Micky Dolenz of the Monkees and Jason Scheff of Chicago. The guys will play selections from their own careers in addition to songs from The White Album.

Dec. 13 - Nick Offerman
There's never a bad time to have a good laugh, and this show is particularly well-timed in that it'll offer a respite for those who might be getting a little frazzled over the impending holiday season. Nick will likely sing a couple of funny songs, riff on how he's not Ron Swanson, dish out some barbed political commentary and of course tell hilarious stories about woodworking.

Dec. 14 - Alice Cooper Christmas Pudding
This annual event is one of the most-anticipated of Celebrity Theatre shows. A fundraiser for Cooper's Solid Rock Teen Centers, this year's lineup includes Alice performing with original Alice Cooper Band members Michael Bruce, Neal Smith and Dennis Dunaway, Rob Halford, Joe Bonamassa, Nita Strauss, Mark Slaughter, and Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme. Comedians Gary Mule Deer and Jim Breuer will handle the funny business.

Jan. 10 and 11 - Styx
There's a reason why Styx are scheduled for two shows; fans in Phoenix love them and the band loves playing at Celebrity Theatre. Expect a non-stop barrage of hits and favorites like "Come Sail Away," "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)," "Lady," "The Grand Illusion," "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Crystal Ball" "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)" and "Suite Madame Blue." And after years of not playing the song, Styx has returned "Mr. Roboto" to the lineup.

Jan. 31 - Alan Parsons Live Project
Did you know that Alan Parsons is a pretty good magician and a member of Hollywood's Magic Castle? That's true, but the wizardry this evening will be entirely musical and come in the form of performances of favorites like "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You," "Damned if I Do," "Eye in the Sky," "Games People Play," "Time," and with any luck, super oldie "(The System of) Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether."

Feb. 29 - Lou Gramm with Asia
Lou Gramm was the original lead vocalist for Foreigner, the voice that brought you "Dirty White Boy," "Cold as Ice," "Hot Blooded," "Juke Box Hero," "Urgent" and "Feels Like the First Time" along with solo hits like "Midnight Blue." Asia featuring John Payne will open with hits like "Heat of the Moment," "Sole Survivor," "Only Time Will Tell," "Wildest Dream" and "Don't Cry."

Apr. 14 - The Monkees
"Hey hey we're the Monkees, people say we monkey around´┐Ż" The two surviving Monkees, Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz, will perform in what will assuredly be an epic blast from the past. You know all the words so be ready to sing along to "I'm a Believer," "Steppin' Stone," "Daydream Believer," "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and "Last Train to Clarksville." Did we already say, epic?
