Grammy Award-winning trumpet player/composer Chris Botti returns to Davies Symphony Hall for an evening of jazz classics with the San Francisco Symphony. Swing to the sophisticated sounds of America's best-selling jazz instrumentalist, whose compositions cross a wide swath of genres, often veering into pop territory -- but always maintaining a smooth, seductive sound. Four of his albums have reached No. 1 on the Billboard jazz charts, and he's the biggest-selling jazz instrumentalist in the country. Steven Reineke conducts. Learn More

We saw the opening band, and Joe Satriani, and unfortunately we had to leave before Deep Purple even started. There were so many people smoking pot that it was literally making me ill, so my husband and I left. We were in seats, and there were signs posted that said No Smoking Allowed in seats or on the lawn. There were many ushers and some security personnel. People were freely passing joints back and forth, smoke was clearly visible and no one made any effort to curtail the smoking. It was way too stinky for me. Very disappointing.
Deep Purple play their first tour in North America in four years. The pioneering rock band -- featuring classic members Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums, percussion), has dubbed this tour, Deep Purple: The Songs That Built Rock, and it will make a stop at Concord's Sleep Train Pavilion with special guest Joe Satriani.
Fans can expect to hear the band's trail-blazing iconic hits -- including "Smoke on the Water," "Highway Star," "Hush" and "Space Truckin'" -- plus other favorites. Throughout its career, Deep Purple has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and has incorporated classical music, blues-rock, pop and progressive rock.
