CITI PRESENTS LITTLE STEVEN’S UNDERGROUND GARAGE AT THE BASIE: LITTLE STEVEN & THE DISCIPLES OF SOUL
(APRIL 24, 2017 – RED BANK) Little Steven & The Disciples Of Soul will take the Basie stage for the first time ever when Citi Presents Little Steven’s Underground Garage at the Basie on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 8pm.
Tickets, priced between $39 and $89, go on sale this Friday, April 28 at noon via theBASIE.org, phone charge at 732.842.9000 and the Basie box office, located onsite at 99 Monmouth Street in Red Bank. All tickets will include a physical copy of Soulfire, Steven Van Zandt’s first solo album in nearly two decades.
Citi cardmembers and Count Basie Theatre members will have first access to tickets, including $150 VIP tickets which include a pre-show meet and greet and photograph with Van Zandt, and a signed copy of Soulfire.
“The Basie originally was my local theater growing up, where I saw A Hard Day’s Night, The Nutty Professor, and Bye Bye Birdie,” Van Zandt says. “Now it’s one of my favorite venues.”
“Maureen and I were honored to be asked to be on the board, and help with the Basie’s transformation into a performing arts and education center, which will include the first Little Steven’s Underground Garage club. Citi is our corporate partner and their enthusiasm has been consistently inspiring. It’s the perfect place for our Soulfire release party, which will probably be our only show in the U.S. until the fall.”
Citi Presents Little Steven’s Underground Garage at The Basie is a series of public and private concerts at the nonprofit theatre curated by Steven and Maureen Van Zandt, with the mission of delivering both classic and new rock and roll to devoted fans. The series of performances support the nonprofit theatre’s $20 million capital campaign and expansion plan, which looks to break ground as early as this summer.
