An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Live has been together for nearly 22 years and through that journey, has built an impressive résumé that includes eight full-length albums, total CD sales exceeding 20 million, a huge international fan base and extensive touring all over the world. Live has been one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s. Their sophomore album, Throwing Copper (a 1994 release) was a huge success and was the only album in Billboard history to stay on the charts for 52 weeks before reaching #1. Selling more than 12 million copies worldwide, Throwing Copper went down in history as one of the most definitive alternative rock recordings of that decade that boasted the MTV smashes “All Over You,” “Selling the Drama,” “Lightning Crashes” and “I Alone.”
Collective Soul’s debut, Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, was picked up by Atlantic Records in 1994, and the single “Shine” became a breakthrough hit, pushing the album to platinum status. With 21 tracks debuting on the Billboard chart and seven #1 singles (“Shine,” “December,” “The World I Know,” “Where The River Flows,” “Precious Declaration,” “Listen,” and “Heavy”), Collective Soul have proven themselves as one of rock’s greatest acts.
Blues Traveler formed in New York City twenty years ago. With the release of Four (1994) Blues Traveler spawned one of the biggest hits of the 1990s – the Grammy-winning “Run-Around” – which spent nearly a year on the charts. The next hit single from Four, “Hook,” drove the album to sell over 5 million copies. Over the course of their career, the band has released eight studio albums, six of which have been certified either gold or platinum, and sold over 10 million units worldwide.
